I am a stay at home mom of 3: 13, almost 10, and 6. And I am lucky enough to be married to the same handsome guy for the last 14 years. If we aren’t home, we are at the beach. I mean, if you lived 10 minutes from the beach isn’t that where you would be?

And then there is this guy. Say Hello to Pudge. He is our Basset Hound puppy. When he isn’t howling at EVERYTHING, he is begging for a banana. Do you know how hard it is to say no to that face? Yeah….he usually gets a bite of banana.

So What is A Few Short Cuts?

A Few Short Cuts is a modge podge of deals, coupons, recipes, crafts and tips to save you time & money in every aspect of your life. Ok, every aspect might be going a little far, but if I can use it, or it saves me time….you will find it here. I am all about sharing my tips with you guys. Time and money are two precious commodities we can all use more of. If I can help someone with A Few Short Cuts, that makes my day better.


I have a passion for baking and I love to cook. So you will find all kinds of recipes in the recipe index. My kids make things interesting because I have one allergic to milk, and one allergic to wheat. You will find many gluten free, dairy free recipes in the mix.

Where is Your Cape?

HA, no I am no super hero. Some days I am lucky to make it to the computer with all of the craziness at my house.  So please keep in mind, there will be typos, I am human, and I try my best. I am just lil’ ole me trying to help others A Few Short Cuts at a time.
