Hello. I am Dana Vento, blogger for PittsburghFrugalMom.Com! I am a mom to three children, 2 boys and a girl. My children keep my moving, and make me learn more each day as their needs grow and their lives blossom!
Welcome to my consumer education blog. I feature money saving tips, reviews about products, giveaways and information that will help you the consumer SAVE. I also educate you on how to use stores to their fullest potential to receive the best possible value on everything you purchase. Frugal is not cheap, it is a way to live within your means and still have the best of everything. I educate consumers on best purchase practices through reviews and shopping.
My goal is to educate each of you as consumers on the best places to frequent as families, or individuals and to get the most out of every purchase. My site is geared to Consumer news and information that is designed to help make your life better. PFM is dedicated to helping you discover deals, discounts and websites for every aspect of your life, as a Pittsburgh Consumer. An educated consumer is the best consumer… and PFM is your one-stop shop! I’m all about getting the most for your family—from your hard earned money. PFM is “frugal-fun”: keeping the enjoyment up and the final bill down.
My blogs will illustrate for you the best places, events, establishments, etc. to visit. Many of them family focused as so many of my readers have families and are constantly seeking the best places to go as a family. Sometimes frugal is just knowing where to go without going to the wrong places, and spending money at those places when the RIGHT place was so much better. I will provide you the GREAT places through all of my trials and errors as I work with the companies, establishments, corporations and so forth that provide these excellent family values.
Life can be expensive and our economy is making it difficult to keep expenses at bay, but I can assure you with a few simple changes in how you spend money, and adopting the philosophy of “buy what you need, and need what you buy”, you will be able to extend your hard-earned pay check farther than you would believe.
I firmly believe that education is key the key to survival in this economy and that a well educated consumer is the best consumer. The well-educated consumer must know the policies for coupons, sales and where to buy what products and why.
Through my blogs, Facebook page and Tweets you can learn how to become that well-rounded frugal person who still is able to purchase things they need, but at the prices you want! Read the blogs daily to see how to make the most of each store you visit thus maximizing your spending power.
