Welcome to Frugal Family Finds!
I am married, and a mother to four amazing children; ages 12, 10, and 7 year old twins. Over the past ten years we have accumulated almost $30,000 in debt. This doesn’t even include our mortgage ! My husband and I are in the process of getting rid of all of our debt, and hope to be able to make some major life changes to make sure we never have debt again. In the process I will be sharing with you all, how we are doing meeting our goals. Along with tips that I have learned for making more money, frugal living, and some of my very best recipes. We are learning to embrace frugal living, and I hope to be able to inspire you to do the same! Frugal can still be fun, and is is so very rewarding.
If I had to describe myself in one word, I would say “real”. I am a tell it like it is kind of gal. (Which gets me into trouble sometimes). However, I see no reason to sugar coat things. So here on Frugal Family Finds (FFF) you are going to get the facts, opinions, and ideas in the simplest way possible. Straight to the point, in your face.
My life is FAR from perfect. I don’t think I know any more than the next person about how to raise my children, manage my money, and make life choices. However I have learned some things along the way, and if I can help one person, then I have done what I’ve set out to do!
We are not “poor” by any standards.. however if we were not repaying debt each month, we could be doing so much more with that money! Something I think many of you can relate to. My hope with FFF is that you will be inspired, encouraged, and know that it IS possible to make positive changes in your own homes and lives. You can read more about our story and our family here.
Pull up a cozy chair, get a hot cup of coffee, and happy reading!
