I am a registered nurse, work full time and also help my fiance from time to time with his business. ( Feel free to visit his website, he is a private investigator. ) We live in Columbia, Missouri, bought our home about a year ago. Have 3 dogs, no children and more than enough to keep us pretty busy. Love the ThriftyFun site, get so many good ideas and tips from it, was raised by necessity to be frugal and just can`t see wasting money.
