Welcome to Living on Less. This blog is meant to show you how to live on less money but still enjoy life and give to others. I will share money saving tips, recipes, gift ideas, how to use your savings to help others, and much more. If there is a topic you would like covered, please let me know and I will do my best to post on it.

I'm sure you want to know a little about who is behind this blog. I'm a mom to a very active two year old boy and hopefully another bundle of joy will be arriving in the next year or so. I've been married to my husband for four years now. I've always been interested in a frugal lifestyle, but I took it to another level this past year as my husband has been working less than full time. As soon as we received word that his hours would be less, we started looking for more ways to live on less. Close to a year later, and thanks to God, family, and friends, we have only had to dip into savings twice. The tips you read on here on ways we save, without feeling deprived. Throughout this process, I have continued to work my part time job but feel it is my duty to be home a few days a week with our child. With a little work, you too can Live on Less.

Hi Julie -- You were one of the winners in my book giveaway but I can't seem to find your email address. Please send me your mailing address as soon as you can since I go on vacation on Saturday and I'd love to send it out before then. Thanks, and congrats!
