Welcome to Deal Detecting Diva, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Ashlea Konecny, and I am the voice behind the Diva. First of all, I would like to say a big THANK YOU for visiting my blog! I put a lot into this “baby” and to see it growing and reaching out to help more and more people, I am truly humbled by you all.
If you’re new, welcome! I love new faces in the world of frugal living. My goal is to give you the proper tools to maximize your savings while maintaining a healthy, well balanced life. I encourage you to go at your own pace, use coupons on your time, and supply your family with adequate – not massive – amounts of grocery, household and health and beauty products as inexpensively as possible. If you’ve got a HOT deal that should not be missed, I encourage you to send me an email. I always look forward to hearing from you!
Growing up, I was always searching for the best deal. I was taught the value of a dollar at a very young age, which is exactly what I am trying to instill in my young children. My husband and I have two boys, ages 9 and 7. They are “boys” in every sense of the word. We do have our hands full! But – we wouldn’t change it for the world.
I started Deal Detecting Diva on June 1st, 2009, but I didn’t really start blogging full-time until November of 2009. I started the blog mainly to show my good deals to my friends and family. Little did I know it would turn into this! My husband Paul helps by typing lists, taking photos, posting some deals and by answering questions and posting his awesome recipes.
Again, thank you for visiting, I hope you’ll stay in touch and come back often!
