New Here?

If you are new to reading blogs, don't be intimidated. Let me explain how my site works. The left and right sidebars have information that will always be in the same place so that you can access it easily. I may move, change or add something from time to time but it will pretty much stay the same. The blog is the middle section that basically acts as a newsreel for information that I add throughout the day. The top post or "story" being the newest information and older posts as you scroll down. My blog holds only 10 posts per page so when you get to the bottom, click on older posts to read more. Thank you for stopping by my site. I look forward to helping you and your family save lots of money!! Maggie Howes Baton Rouge Mommy
