About

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. 🙂 I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    I stumbled upon your blog searching for gardening blogs. I am glad I found you. Parts of your About page sound just like our family. My husband I were foster Parents and adopted our beautiful little Kailey. We were blessed to have her come to us at 7 days old and we adopted her on her 9 month birthday. We have garden in our back and front yard and love growing our own food. I am not as frugal as you but I know I could learn some good lessons from your blog.

    I too have a blog called Grow it at Home. I would love it if you visited and got to know our family a bit. I look forward to reading more or your posts and researching some of your older ones. Congrats on all the awards. Great job!!

    • Glad you found me Joelle! I’ll head over tonight and take a peek. Congrats on your adoption. We foster delinquent teens on this end. We have both worked in the probation arena, so we kind of migrated that way after our own children grew up and left the nest. We lead a pretty busy life and are always adding more fun items to our plates. 🙂
