My name is Liz, and I am a Catholic mom living in Northern Virginia with my husband and four children – born 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2015. My husband works in IT, and I am a homemaker, freelance writer, and, of course, blogger. I am a cradle Catholic and a graduate of a small Catholic college.
For a few years, I ran a general frugal lifestyle and couponing blog, but after a time I was ready to move on to other things. I was inspired to start Catholic Deals after realizing that despite all the blogs out there sharing deals for everything under the sun, I had never seen a blog that featured deals for Catholic products.
Like other Catholic parents, I want to purchase religious articles, books, and media for my family, but I have been frustrated in the past with how expensive they can be. There are good deals out there, however, and at this blog you can find them all in one place. I also love introducing my readers to unique and handmade Catholic products that may be new to them. In addition to deals on specifically religious products, I also publish some deals on high quality toys, baby items, and other items of interest to Catholic families.
Of course, having more Catholic stuff does not by itself make a Catholic home, but I believe that filling your home with items that express your faith can certainly help. My parents filled our home with stories of the saints, movies that portrayed true heroism, and icons and crucifixes on the walls. Those images are what formed my imagination and my taste and influence it to this day.
My hope is that this blog will help make it possible for Catholic families to fill their homes with quality Catholic and Christian products that will enhance their spiritual and family lives.
