Meet Lisa!

My name is Lisa Thompson and I am thrilled to be America’s New Chief Nickel-n-Dimer!  I am married to the man of my dreams and we have 4 awesome kiddos…3 girls and 1 boy.  I love Jesus, my family, music, shoes, purses, travel, chocolate, and finding a great deal {not necessarily in that order}.

In January of 2009, when my husband and I decided to face our finances, we had over $50,000 of debt (not including our house).  I knew we had to spend less, but I wasn’t sure where to start! Being the research lover that I am, I scoured the internet for ways to cut back and I stumbled across a great site called Nickels-n-Dimes.

I read through the great info that Becky Grizovic (founder of Nickels-n-Dimes.com) put together and I began to clip coupons and match them up with the sales.  I also started a blog to keep myself accountable.  That blog grew and so did my stockpile.

Less than 2 years after beginning our get-out-of-debt journey, I am thrilled to be able to say “We’re debt free!”  I even got to stand next to Dave Ramsey and shout it out!

In April of 2011, I took over the reins from Becky and moved into the role of America’s Chief Nickel-n-Dimer.  It’s been an exciting change and I absolutely love bringing you the best deals every day!

Since paying off our debt, we’ve become a little more lax with our spending and saving, but 2012 is our year to get back to budgeting and saving and we are  hoping to make some significant progress in our finances so that we are able to accomplish more of our goals.

I just wanted to say thank you for taking over the nickels-n-dimes website. While we will miss Becky I’m excited to see what you’ll do with the website. Thanks for all the post so far.
