Who Am I?

Who am I?

I am a homeschooling mom who supports a family of seven on one income. We eat a healthy plant-based diet and purchase clean cosmetics and cleaning products. I created this blog to help others who want to live a frugal, healthy life. I found there were a lot of blogs telling people how to be cheap and websites telling people how to live holistically but not many that helped people do both. We live a homesteading life with a few improvements and modifications for our modern day. I still own a toaster but I don’t throw away many scraps.

We use nutrition, herbalism, and aromatherapy to boost our health and avoid costly medical visits. In 2019 I completed the Huckleberry Mountain Botanical School of Herbalism Didactic & Scientific Professional Clinical Program. I am currently enrolled in the Heart of Herbs School as a Master Herbalist and Aromatherapist. These allow me to help my family stay healthy year round on a budget and I want to help you do the same.

My goal is to help you realize that you can thrive while living a healthy lifestyle, even if you live below the poverty line. I want to help you create delicious, inexpensive, healthy recipes. I want you to be able to find money to use clean cosmetics and household products without toxic chemicals. You can still take excellent care of your family’s health using tried and true backyard remedies while cutting down on expensive doctor’s visits. You can even find resources and money to homeschool your kids with quality materials. If you want to live a healthy, high quality life on a dime you have come to the right place!
