About

Welcome! Glad you stopped by. I write about frugality, minimalism, and living simply. I believe all of these things can be colorful, fabulous, and full of joy. When not writing, I spend my time trying to keep my toddler from eating rug lint and wondering where she hid my phone.

Over the last 3 years, I’ve been letting go of the “extras”- from clothes to habits- discovering “the joy of less,” as Francine Jay puts it. It’s a continual process, but one that is so worth it. 

This blog exists to share ideas to inspire you in your own journey of creating a simple, joyful life while being budget-minded. Fabulous frugality is all about smart saving and spending so that you can get a little closer to the home and life that you want.

Almost everyone wants to save more money and live better.  Since you’ve stumbled upon this blog, you probably do too. But have you ever looked up some of the synonyms for “frugal”?

Scanty.   Plain.   Meager.   Sparing.   Stingy. 

Ugh. Who’s thinking, Yes please, sign me right up for that? Not me.

Why can’t frugal be fabulous instead?

  1. Hi there– I’m frugal at heart too. So it’s fun to find your blog!! My daughter and I were just talking today about Target– how they have the genius blend of items you need– bananas & toilet paper– surrounded by not too expensive things you just want– pillows & new clothes. That’s why people love that store! Anyway, fun to read along…
