I’m a military wife and stay at home (schooling) mom to seven kids. When I’m not homeschooling the kids I like to read, sew, cook, yard sale, and write. I currently live in North Florida, but being in a military family I’ve lived everywhere from Panama to West Virginia and lots of places in between.
I started TheHappyHousewife.com in January of 2008 as a resource for those who wanted to better manage their homes. From recipes to budgeting, you’ll find real life, practical ways to live well, save more, and have fun! Being a “happy housewife” is not some ideal of a bygone era. Women today are decision makers, influencers, and game changers, so let’s not waste our opportunities!
If you don't follow The Happy Housewife already, head over to her blog and start following her! I love all of her frugal tips like Determining whether or not it is worth it to drive to a gas station 1-2 miles away just because the gas is a little cheaper ...
5 simple ways to trim your grocery spending (I'm always looking for ways to save money on groceries).
She has so many great tips on her blog! Recently she posted about How to get rid of black ants (you'll never guess what she used....ok, maybe some of you will...but it was definitely a new technique to me!)
Toni's giveaway ends Tuesday, April 19th!
