The short story is that I’m a Christian, wife, mom, school and church volunteer, and blogger. In my spare time (which is exteremely rare) I love to read and tinker with my website. Yes, I’m a geek.
I love to encourage people in their journey toward taking control of their money and living a more frugal lifestyle.
I began writing BeingFrugal.net to chronicle my journey out of debt. As a one income family, I knew that in order to make any headway in my debt repayment plans, I would have to cut the budget by being frugal. Along the way I have had many successes, and some mistakes, too.
BeingFrugal.net has an active commenting community, and there’s a lot to learn not only from the blog, but from the wonderful people who read and leave their own suggestions and opinions.
Some of the topics I cover are:
Frugal Mom Reviews is an offshoot of BeingFrugal.net. I found that bloggers are often offered products to review, and since I don’t believe in spending money unless the product is worth it, I set up Frugal Mom Reviews as a way to let my readers know whether a product is worth the price tag or not.
In August 2008 I became one of Walmart’s Eleven Moms, a groundbreaking partnership between a big corporation and moms in the social media realm. I was able to travel to the Walmart headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas in October to see the inner workings of the corporation and give feedback to Walmart executives. You can read all about my trip right here.
I love to hang out on Twitter! Since I work from home, it’s my version of the watercooler at work. I like to chit chat with whoever happens to be tweeting when I’m there. I also like to post links to articles I find interesting and deals I come across. So don’t be shy! Follow me and say hello!

What works for me may or may not work for you, and you should always consult a financial advisor before making important financial decisions.
