About Me




Hi and Welcome to Lights and Sirens Kind of Life, my name is Carrie and I am the owner of this page. I am a mom to 3 amazing sons, I live in Wisconsin but grew up in Northern Illinois(about 10 miles away) you can literally jog to IL and back 🙂

Family is the most important thing in the world to me. I have amazing parents, 3 sisters and a brother. Several aunts and uncles 2 nephews and a niece. And of course FRIENDS that are like family, that right there is truly blessed.


I started writing to help others. Meal planning used to take me days to figure it out and if it wasnt for following other bloggers and pinterest I would still be like UMMMM maybe we should have this or what about that. Not anymore I make a monthly meal plan (yes its flexible in case something comes up), and a weekly meal sheet. I love the fact that kids used to argue about what to eat for breakfast now they look at meal plan and say Oh today is Cereal Day, etc. It makes it so much easier to manage something as simple as what to eat.


I also write Deals and Couponing posts, I love shopping but with coupons and now apps such as Ibotta or Checkout 51 you can save even more. Then you have the stores that offer gift cards with purchase. Shopping is great but saving money is even better,

If you would like to subscribe to my blog and receive weekly or monthly newsletters please do so by using the forms on my home page.


I greatly appreciate you stopping by and hope that even one of my posts can help you in some way.
