Introducing (drumroll please) Katie

Hi. I’m Katie. I’d probably label myself as an extreme homemaker (at least, that’s what I try to be).

I’m in my 20s, and at that age, many people aren’t trying to begin homesteading or cut household expenses. However, I went through a serious medical crisis a few years back. I actually had to relearn how to walk… among other things… but that’s a story for another time. Anyway, that experience aged me by at least a decade.

Also, after I got out of the hospital, I married my high school sweetheart and moved an hour away from everything I know. Then my husband decided to surprise me with a dog, which eventually turned into two dogs. Due to my medical issues, I haven’t been able to find a job outside the home. My spouse’s one job went from comfortably supporting one to supporting four, and we were going through funds like water.

Our 1st dog – Pepper – he’s huge, over 100 lbs

As the person staying at home with a lot more time on my hands, I began looking at finances. I started cutting expenses left and right. I read so many frugality books and blogs (Kate Singh is fabulous) that my head spun. I’m still picking up new things, but I’ve learned a lot and want to share it.

Our 2nd dog – Camo – only a little smaller, about 60ish lbs

I’d like to tell you what I do to give you ideas for saving some money.

I’d also like to inspire you. There are lots of frugality blogs out there, but this one shows my personal journey.

I do all sorts of things, from sewing and cooking to gardening and painting and everything in between. I’m sure there’s something to interest you, so snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy.
