Welcome to What Rose Knows (formerly Rose Knows Coupons)!
We are so happy to have you! Here is a little info & background about the team of 3 at What Rose Knows! Let me introduce us all....
I'm Rosemarie Lemke (Rose for short of course!), and blog to you from the picturesque state of Wisconsin! For those that know me personally, I'm a very proud Wisconsinite! I'm married to my biggest fan, Jon, and we have two children. Our daughter is 16 (help....!) and our son is 9.
I started Rose Knows Coupons in 2010 after I realized how beneficial it was to share my shopping tips and strategies with family and friends! A year after my son was born, we moved about 40 minutes away from the big city into a smaller town that only offered a few stores to shop at. Being a stay-at-home mom, I wanted to contribute to the family finances, however, working during the day just wasn't an option. Once I discovered couponing, my husband and I realized that I may not be contributing with a paycheck, but I was certainly saving almost as much as that just by coupon shopping!
I didn't have the liberty of driving only a few minutes to have my pick of stores so shopping became a process for me. I learned to plan my trips, organize my coupons, and pay close attention to the sale ads. I understand how coupon shopping can be a tad bit time consuming, and since it's become second nature to me, I'll do the work for you!
Since then I have realized that I want to share so much more than coupons and deals with my readers. Recently we changed the name of the site to What Rose Knows. The reason I did this is because I did not feeling limited to coupons and deals. I love decorating, DIY projects, and creating easy recipes we can all make. Changing the name of the site just made sense to me because now I can post what I know and share it with you all!
My husband Jon and his best friend Shawn both had schooling and experience with graphic communications and programming so we were able to create What Rose Knows from the ground up without using any existing blogging platform! Everything you see, and mostly every operation on What Rose Knows is thanks to these incredibly intelligent men! I'm so grateful that my "IT help desk" is just a phone call...or should I say just a "friend" away! (A million thanks to you Shawn!)
Jon, Rose, Shawn
I like to spend my free time working out and reading my beloved contemporary romance or Amish fiction. The kids keep me busy with their school activities and I'm a Cub Scout co-leader with my husband, as well as the Outings Chair for our son's Cub Scout Den! I also have recently started a new travel blog, Amish In Wisconsin!
