I’m a coffee-loving, video game-addicted, stockpiling-obsessed 30-something living with my husband, John and daughter, Allison. I first REALLY started cooking in 2011 right after we got married, and after browsing cookbooks and falling down the rabbit-hole that is Pinterest, I learned a lot about food and how to budget for it. I developed a system for meal planning, became a pretty good couponer, and memorized price points to build a stockpile.

We’ve been through 4 job losses and the birth of our beautiful daughter who required formula, which forced us to quickly realize we needed to prioritize our money. We’ve lived on $37 a week and $30 a week for groceries on two different occasions, and came out stronger and wiser each time. Now I want to help YOU understand how to live better on a budget, eat more frugally, and spend less time meal planning and more time living!
