Hi there! I’m Lauren, a stay at home mom of three kids under five.
I love everything about being a wife, a mom and a homemaker. Play dates, library trips, art time, cooking, cleaning, organizing, scheduling, home repairs (and remodels!), decorating… I love it all!
My kids are equal parts sweet and silly, with a good measure of sassy heaped on top. Even with a professional background of being a counselor and a behavior analyst, I am constantly learning about child behavior from them. I love to share my education and experience with other parents, because it truly does take a village!
Since I stay at home with my children, I am constantly working to save money. I thrive on the challenge of finding ways to keep my cash by making instead of buying, bringing new life to old things, and even doing without once in a while.
As a result, living frugally and being minimalist have been a large focus for me for several years. It is definitely a process, but I love the lessons that I am learning about myself and others.
During this time, I have discovered many ways to make delicious, wholesome foods that I used to have to buy. I love sharing my tips with you so you can save some money and make some easy, yet amazing, recipes.
Due to my husband’s job, my family moves every few years. This means that we tend to buy and sell houses more frequently than the average person. To (hopefully!) make a little money, we do mini flips on our houses, and are so excited to share our DIY projects with you!
All of the projects we feature are things that we have had to learn how to do on the spot. We do not have any technical knowledge or special skills, but we have developed a ton of know-how the good old fashioned way.
All in all, I am beyond blessed to live such a crazy busy, adventure filled life, where I can spend my time with the people I cherish, doing all of the things that I enjoy so greatly.
Take a look around and see how I am loving on my family, remodeling my home, and saving money all along the way!
