Raising a family of 6 on a budget, I understand the stress that Christmas can create, a time when we feel the urge to overdo everything: gifts, parties, meals, and decorations. Of course, all of these activities and preparations cost money and can distract everyone from the real reason for the season.
OK, so I am not officially back blogging yet, but I did want to take a moment to announce that for the month of January and, stretching through February 3rd, I have lowered the price of my book, Frugal Seeds 501 Ways to Make, Save or Stretch a Dollar, in both print and ebook form.
This book shares many of the ways that my family of 6 used to pay off all of our medical and consumer debt and ways we continue to use as we work to pay off our mortgage.
The book can be viewed here and, as always can be read for FREE with KindleUnlimited.
I look forward to seeing everyone again in February!
It is that beautiful time of year again when we celebrate Advent, the time we prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus.

The Holidays, even if you budget for them, have a way of putting a strain on your wallet. While my kids were younger, I worked very hard to make sure they didn’t notice our limited budget by keeping Christmas a fun and active time while remaining focused on the true meaning of this holy season.
I am super excited to announce my newest book, Frugal Seeds: 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on a Budget. This book is a true labor of love as it includes the many ways my family celebrated the holy season while living on a budget.
I would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to check it out here.
I am excited to announce that we have another book available on Amazon, Frugal Seeds Summer Edition, 101 Ways to Enjoy Summer with Your Kids for Little Money. This was a true labor of love as the ideas inside this e-book are how I have enjoyed summer with my kids through the years.
I would be humbled if you would check it out. Free to read with KindleUnlimited and 99 cents to download.
The title of my blog gives away the fact that I live with at least one chronic illness. Now, I don’t want to brag, but I actually live with several, and as interesting as it sounds, it is not a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately I am not the only one in my family who lives with such a burden. Every person in my immediate family lives with at least one chronic illness.
As a result of all of our medical bills, we have learned to live on a tight budget. Over the years I have had to learn to be frugal and about 6 months ago I decided to put some of my frugal ways into a book, Frugal Seeds: 501 Ways to Make, Save or Stretch a Dollar. It is now available in both paperback and e-book on Amazon. The entire book can be read for FREE with an Amazon Kindle Unlimited membership.
You will notice it is written under a pen name. This has been done as I working on additional books and I am determined to keep the lives of my children private. Thank you for understanding.
Like so many other people on this small planet, I take the beginning of a new year to set out goals that I hope to accomplish over the next year. I have a lot of them, eat healthier, move my body more, spend more time in nature, save more money, pay down debt, read more books, spend more time with God and go on more dates with my husband. As I was mulling over what it is I would like to accomplish this year, I realized that I really just need to spend more time doing the good stuff and less time doing the bad stuff. Yep, that about sums it up!
Wishing all of you a very blessed New Year! May you reach your goals………
