My name is Becky and I am a homeschooling mom to two wonderful children, ages 9 and 10. After our family suffered long-term unemployment, it became necessary to make permanent changes to our lifestyle. While it requires daily commitment and determination, we are continuing to live a more practical life.

I am an avid do-it-yourselfer with nearly 17 years of experience in home improvement and organization. Most recently, I have contributed as an author on the PlanItDIY website. My additional experience in personal finance can help readers understand the importance of finding thrifty solutions to save money.
