About Me

square headshot 7-15
Hi, I’m Leah and I love the challenge of living a rich life on a tight budget. I started this blog to share my strategies for saving time and money with my family and friends. I write about my efforts to save money through deals, do-it-yourself projects and recipes. I also love to travel (especially to Disney World!) so I write about frugal travel, too.

I’m really interested in how living frugally can help my family have what we want in life – more time with each other, healthy and delicious food, a nice place to live, and a chance to travel. We live in beautiful North Carolina and some of what I write about pertains to folks who also live in the South, but a lot of the tips and ideas apply wherever you live.

Another aspect of living frugally that is important to my family is reducing our impact on our planet’s resources. We try to be conscious about how our buying and lifestyle choices affect the environment. We try to do more with less stuff, limit waste, buy secondhand when possible and choose food that causes the least harm.

Thanks for checking out this site and I hope you will get some ideas that can help your family live a rich life – that is, have time and money for what you really want. Of course, take what you like and leave the rest.

With love,

Leah Crocker Althiser
