About Amber, Q Diva.


Welcome to my corner of the world!
I love couponing, I love learning new ways to live frugal to enrich the quality of my family’s life. Plus, I enjoy sharing it with you! I live in a small rural town in Eastern Oregon, surrounded by friends and beautiful mountains. I’m in recovery and hope the next 30 years has lots of laughter and a blessed life. I hope the same for you too. Couponing has changed the way I view just about everything in life. I’m glad to share the savings!

  1. Hi Amber,

    I’m really thrifty and frugal. Always trying to save on something. I spend my time checking the stock market now. I was able to build up a portfolio with the money I’ve saved! I’m driving a car that is over 16 years old. People tell me to change it. But why? It never breaks down and gets me where I want to go! I’m a British baby boomer, so everything seems expensive. I’m at the stage now where I have to force myself to spend money! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi there Amber and thank you so much for the follow on my own wee blog it is great to have you on board. Any requests just let me know. I think frugality must be in my blood as my wife keeps reminding me of my Scottish heritage. Oregon sounds like a great part of the world to live in, albeit damp like Ireland, MM ๐Ÿ€

      • I will and hope your son’s skin clears up a bit. My son had exema on his hands and feet from 5 to 7 yrs old…stress related. The doctor made a cream based with vasolene and some secret thing…but no cortison at all…it worked for what he needed. I will try the olive oil…I use that with my hair a lot for a hot oil treatment once a month.

      • Thanks, I feel so bad when we try a new lotion and it burns. I have tried pure olive oil on my face, it feels nice. If you haven’t heard of “oil pulling” it is really interesting, I have done it and it…

  3. Thank you, Amber, for following me at Triggershorse. My mom was a big-time refunder pre-computer days, when the refunding magazines would come by snail-mail. She did amazing things with coupons and cash-back offers to help stretch my dad’s paycheck. I look forward to following your blog.

  4. Hello Amber – wow, you’ve got your hands full with 5 little ones! When I was raising my daughter as a single parent, I lived very frugally, so we could afford living in our own house, with a garden, and travel. Other women with similar income had to live in an aptmt because of their debt burden. If you have a garden, you can save even more money by growing your own veggies and you get the very best produce, chemical free. Canning, dehydrating and freezing will add to your winter storage of food. If you don’t have a garden, you can always buy in bulk, in season produce from local farmers and still put your food up for the winter.
    Raising your kids to enjoy outside play (endless entertainment) gets them connected to nature, teaches them to be more self-reliant and inquisitive (you may want to read “Last Child in the Woods: Nature Deficit Disorder” a great book about the absolute necessity for kids to spend time in nature). Also, encouraging them to play with basic, inexpensive materials (crafts paper, pipe cleaners, markers and crayons, lots of paper, clay, sand, etc) teaches them creativity and resourcefulness. There are so many ways to be frugal and still live a great life. Beating the consumer mentality is the name of the game!
    Oh, and thank you so much for following my blog, BeautyAlongtheRoad.

    So Amber, I guess you have just become one of The Spikeyโ€™s, that small clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank youโ€ฆ I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my โ€˜point n shootโ€™ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70โ€ฒs, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, Iโ€™d love to hear from you, serious.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe youโ€™ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great dayโ€ฆ


  6. Thanks for following my blog “In So Many Words.” … I use coupons occasionally but mostly never think about it. Just another thing to distract me. So, I probably pay more than I need to for most things. Except that I do wait for sales for important (and expensive) things like riding breeches. ๐Ÿ˜‰ … Happy couponing!!!
