Hello! I am an obsessive re-cycler and live a very frugal life...and proud of it! I am married with 2 boys and live in vermont. I am very creative with useful crafts and enjoy doing them often. I cook entire meals for under for $5.00, 4-5 servings. I enjoy cooking in advance and freezing so that I can have a wholesome meal/snack in minutes!
