About Mama Cheaps

Devon Weaver Headshot B RESIZE

Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by MamaCheaps.com!  

My name is Devon and I started this blog in February, 2009.  Our family is comprised of my amazing husband of 13 years, Bob.  He is an electrical safety manager by day and a volunteer firefighter by night.  We have two super awesome kiddos, Lily (age 11) and Landon (age 6).

Education:

My educational experience includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (minors in Spanish and Special Education) and a Masters of Science in Applied Technology.  I hold a permanent Pennsylvania Teaching Certificate for K-6 and am a certified Special Education teacher K-12.

I taught elementary school for 7 years before leaving the teaching world to stay at home with my oldest child.  This blog that began as a hobby while on maternity leave quickly evolved into a full-time career.  I love writing pieces on everything from money saving advice to travel reviews and DIY projects.

A little bit about how my blog began: 

When we brought our daughter home from the hospital in September, 2008, we spent those first few (sleep deprived) days doing two things: watching her in awe and fascination and witnessing the biggest crash that the economy has seen in our lifetime.  Suddenly our nest egg didn’t seem so big. With a little bit of effort, we were surprised to learn how many money-saving ideas there really are – and knew we had to publish them for others to see. Some of our very early content included shopping hauls, coupon and frugal living tips and store matchups.

While I still post plenty of deals that will save my readers money, I have also expanded to other topics.  I love writing recipes, DIY projects, travel pieces and more!

Look around, share us with your friends and family, and enjoy!
