THE MOMMAS BEHIND MMSM
Hi friends, Lauren here. We thought it would be fun to throw a few fun facts about who the moms are behind MMSM, so here we go! In high school, I was voted “Most Gullible” and that still may be the case at times 😆. I cannot stand the thumbs up emoji. Nope, not a fan. My all time favorite food is Cheese Doritos with French onion dip— give me the entire tub! My husband Derek and I have been together since 2005 and got married in Fall of 2010. We have a daughter, Eva, who is 8 and a son, Clyde, who just turned 3. We live in Green Bay, Wisconsin, about 100 miles from Kati and her family. I have had a passion for finding deals and “clipping” coupons for as long as I can remember. In late 2017, we got this crazy idea to start a blog and share our love for deals with whomever was willing to read and follow along— we never imagined this turning into such an amazing community of supportive individuals. We are so humbled and thankful!
Hi there, my name is Kati. I grew up on my family’s vegetable farm and spent many summers working in the fields and selling at local markets. It was quite the experience, but I have the farthest from a green thumb. My family makes fun of my faux house plants. But as long as they only need a dusting, they will survive in my home. My husband Trevor and I have been together since 2003 and married since 2008. We have a daughter, Sophia, who is 10 and a son, Levi, who is 8. We live in Wisconsin, in a small town on Lake Michigan called Port Washington. It’s the picture perfect town. Small shops and restaurants around the marina, parks galore & quite a bit to do and explore. I love to travel. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel growing up and it is something I want my children to experience. We usually go on a 1-2 trips each year, I am happy any place it is warm. If we aren’t traveling we are “up north” in northern Wisconsin. We enjoy UTV riding and hiking the state parks. I have had a passion for finding deals since Sophia was in diapers. Babies are expensive and we learned that very quickly. Every little bit helps, and I hope you are helping your family save with the deals you are finding on MMSM.
