I am the editor at ThriftyFun.com. I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 7, and live in Port Orchard, Washington. Port Orchard is a small town across Puget Sound from Seattle on the Kitsap Peninsula.
I've been interested in thrifty tips and frugal living for many years. I roast coffee at home, am interested in beadwork, crafts, home restoration, and gardening.
We started our first frugal thrifty newsletter in 1997. My sons, Fletcher and Lewis and my daughters, Jessica, Mara and Stella have all worked on the site with me. It is a family business.
Oh, lots of cats, Billie Holiday, Lily, Garfield and Boogstar, one dog, Maggie, and 4 fish. We lost our office cat BC on Memorial Day 2007.
