Blog Spotlight | Frugality Is Free
Today I would like to welcome FrugalMom from Frugality Is Free. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
I am a SAHM of threee very active beach boys ages 7, 4 and 11 months, and I am enjoying life to the fullest. I live in South Florida, and I love to spend time outdoors especially at the beach. There is just nothing like going for a walk on the beach while watching the sun rise over the ocean. Before my SAHM career, I worked at a non-for profit children’s rights organization in Manhattan, so life has turned around completely, but I do prefer our laid back South Florida lifestyle.
In my “free” time, I blog, write on my novels, explore my passion for photography, and of course spend as much time as possible at the beach or in the park with the boys.
Please tell me about your blog.
Frugality Is Free is a blog where I share tips and ideas from my frugal life. My husband works hard every day to provide for our family, and I work hard on stretching the money he earns. I love sharing my favorite products, frugal finds, the best deals and coupons with my readers and everyone I know, so blogging is the perfect solution. Living a frugal life does not mean you have to live without, and at Frugality Is Free I try to share my way of living life queenstyle without going broke or compromising on the products that my family loves.
