I have worked for ThriftyFun since October 2007. I moderate the requests that TF users submit. I learn new things everyday from everyone's questions and answers. I love my job and am so privileged to work with such wonderful friends and family!

I am the mother of three fabulous kids! I work hard to teach them to care about the environment and their community. They are very caring and love to make things for people. We are lucky to share our house with 6 wonderful rescued pets...3 dogs (Paige, Gidget, and Nina) and 3 cats (Oolong, Cupcake and Zero).

I have a degree in Graphic Design, but enjoy many other forms of art too! For me, art can brighten any room so I love to use my art to liven up our house!

I was not raised in a frugal household, however I am finding that being more frugal with my own family is helping me achieve some of the future plans I have for my children.

One of my newest frugal ideas has been in response to our eating out too much. I have decided to replace the "eating out for fun" idea with a weekly special meal selected by one of my kids from a cookbook. When it's their turn to choose a meal they will also get to help prepare it. While saving some money it will also give us a chance spend time together and try new things!

I love the rain and I wait in joyful anticipation for Honeycrisp apple season. I hate wearing shoes and I tend to wear flip flops in inappropriate weather!
