Hi! I’m Meg, a homeschooling mom of 6 kids ranging in age from toddler to adult. I’m a terrible housewife but pretty good with the finances. I’ve spent the two decades figuring out how to make life work with one income and I’m here to help you live more, with less.

I once told my husband that it’s a whole lot easier to fall into a hole than it is to crawl out of it; time has been a patient teacher with us.  In our nearly 20 years of marriage we’ve had a lot of ups and downs, especially when it comes to our finances. We’ve run the gamut from having tens of thousands of “extra” in the bank to visiting a food bank. Mostly though, we’ve fit somewhere in the middle.

I don’t want you to think that living frugally is all about ignoring your wants and occasionally your needs. Living frugally is about making small, daily decisions in order to prioritize your wants and needs to allow you to provide all of your needs and some of your wants.

Not all of the information and posts here will suit every reader, take what you can use and leave the rest. Please note that my opinions are just that and my advice is not meant to be used in place of an expert.
