familyWe are BEYOND ecstatic that you’ve found us!  MyDFWMommy is  a money saving, coupon clipping, freebie finding, retail posting, giveaway running, family friendly blog!  Laura Thornquist runs the website and this is her family!  They don’t like to consider themselves “cheap”, they just like to stretch their dollars so they can splurge on things the family really wants!  Right now all the extra money saved goes to gymnastics and select baseball, but that is a whole other blog :)!

Before we get started, we strongly suggest you subscribe to our email newsletter.  Each day around 1:30 you will get one email full of the top 50 or so deals of the day!  Just quickly scroll through it when you can, so you don’t miss out on hot deals and savings!  Of course, you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter for up to the minute offers too!  Don’t forget to check our website out daily as we post new deals at least every 15 minutes or so!

Since you’re new to MyDFWMommy we thought we would make an introduction on the ways you can save.

Retail:  I have to admit, this is probably our favorite part of the blog!  We are consistently on the hunt for super HOT deals you can’t find anywhere else.  From apparel, toys, entertainment, electronics, tools…you name it.  If we find a deal we’ll share it on our retail deals section!

Groceries: If you want to save on groceries, make sure and read through our Extreme Couponing 101 section (make sure and scroll down through all the pages and look at older posts to find what you are looking for), which will give you the ABC’s to saving at your favorite grocery store.  If you don’t want to be the “heavy-duty” saver, just  follow along on our weekly ads tab where we will pull out some of the best deals at your favorite store!

Restaurant Deals: We love to eat out on MyDFWMommy, so if there is a coupon or a deal, you’re sure to find it on our restaurant deals tab!

Freebies:Everyone loves something free, I try to make these as easy as possible so you can quickly browse our frreebies section to see if there is something you want!

Giveaways: Giveaways are a great way to get free things. Just check out our giveaway section! They are easy to enter and win. We offer a ton of giveaways weekly and your chances of winning are GREAT!

If you have any questions there is a chat box on the right sidebar of My Dallas Mommy. I will be chatting while you visit for any  questions that you have!  Don’t be a stranger as we are a great group who celebrates together, cries together and shares together.  Welcome to our community!

    Good morning!

    We have a special on Our Hometown Deal for 50% off our beginner summer camps. It'll be on their site until the end of the week. The link is:

    Thanks for your time. Hope you're having a great week.

    Hi! I have some information on a new product found locally that I wanted to send to you. Do you have an email address you could share with me? Thanks!

    Does anyone feel it is better to go directly to CVS or Walgreens for the register rewards and such or to just price match at Walmart instead? I've been out of the coupon game for a bit and have just been price matching at Walmart for the last 6 months. I found at times I would "mess up" my deal at CVS or Wags and pay more than I actually meant to which frustrated me so decided to just go to Walmart. What are your thoughts?
