About – Frugal Novice


Need to get in touch with me? Email me at frugalnovice {at} gmail {dot} com. I’d love to hear from you!

Hi! I’m the blogger & owner of Frugal Novice. I started this blog back in February 2010 and am thrilled to see how it has grown.

I’m married to my high school sweetheart & best friend. We have 3 great kiddos!

So, there you have us. We’re homebodies, but love hosting friends and family for dinners, movies or game nights.

When I first started this blog, I planned to chronicle my attempts to live more frugally. I quickly decided it’s a lot more fun to write about everything I love, so you’ll find a mix of topics here, from food and recipes (I love to cook and bake) to crafts, activities, printables and more. I am PR friendly and have worked with quite a few companies both on my blog and through my social media channels.

Thanks for visiting FrugalNovice! I hope you’ll stick around.

    You are such a lovely couple.
    Having a happy life doesn’t always depend on how much money you have on the bank.
    well, what more can I say, more blessings to you and your family.
    I’ll bookmark you, Frugal Novice :)

    Hi Christi. Love the pics. You boys are adorable. I lived in the house with 3 men. My only other female in our house was and still is the dog. Although, I now have 3 grand daughters. Love the dogs. We have a black and tan miniature dachshund that is 6 1/2 yrs old and a large white dog. At our house the wiener dog is the alfa dog. I also have photos at pattyodomphotography.weebly.com. I am in Holle’s 365 pics challenge. I think this will be fun.
