Welcome to Frugal Fun Mom!
The place to find frugal fun ideas for moms…join me!
Hi there! I’m Katrina, a spunky wife, a mom with a mohawk, frugal fanatic, loyal dog lover, business owner, runner, devoted brownie eater, lover of all things glitter, and above all else I’m valued and cherished by Jesus even when I don’t get this thing called “mom” right. I’m an imperfect mom who messes up all the time, but I deeply love my family and long to be just who God wants me to be. Welcome! I have so much I want to share with you!
frugal: is prioritizing your spending so that you can have more of the things you really care about.
Before I tell you more about what you can expect to find on Frugal Fun Mom, let’s first define the word “Frugal.”
frugal: is prioritizing your spending so that you can have more of the things you really care about. Being frugal means one is less wasteful and more resourceful and people who live a frugal lifestyle are simply happy living with less.
Living frugal is not about being stingy or cheap with your money and your time, it’s much deeper than that – it’s a way of living where you spend less in order to have more of what really matters.
