Welcome to the Budget Bunch! You might be asking yourself, “Who are these people, and what’s that sticky substance on my kitchen floor?” We can answer the first part of that question. For the second part, you’re on your own. The Budget Bunch (no relation to the equally adorable and entertaining Brady Bunch) is comprised of eight friends who met during one very long, very competitive online contest. Every so often, something good comes out of losing a competition. Sometimes a great idea comes from it, sometimes a friendship emerges. Every once in a while a business adventure comes to form. And thus, the Budget Bunch was born. We’re real people just like you. People who are passionate about not only saving money, but also recipes, crafts and giveaways, making us some of the best DIY'ing, bargain finding, recipe creating, product reviewing folks around the web. Most of us are moms, some of us are dads, but all of us are bloggers who decided to join forces when we realized the need for a one-stop-shop website to help make lives easier for overworked and underpaid folks everywhere. That’s our story. Now meet the cast!

Rachel will be sharing her thoughts about some of the best (and worst) products on the market, including food, drinks, services and gadgets.

Krista over at Savory Savings got a chance to review the Rollie Eggmaster and found that this vertical grill can make fast and easy breakfast meals for your family.
