WELCOME to our new blog!

Thank you for coming by to check us out!!!!

You can read our PURPOSE on our header.

On the side bar you can read ABOUT US.

You can read about the 5 of us who make up this blog on ABOUT ME.

Our goal is to have easy access to frugal ideas all gathered in one central, easy to find location. As we develop the site we will have various topic headings for your easy reference.

I was raised by very frugal parents, who had lived through the depression, and I was taught, at a very early age, the importance of being frugal. I was raised in a Christian home and Church who instilled in me that I was a Steward, or manage, of the things God allowed me to have and use. GOD being the rightful OWNER!!!

I believe we are beginning to see very dramatic changes in the world as we have known it. That we are, by necessity, going to have to become more self reliant, more frugal, more sharing with others, more reliant on our Lord and God than ever before.

There are MANY scriptures that speak to us as God's children, as wives, as mothers. I'm sharing a few of my favorite ones that have guided my life and purpose.

I Corinthians 4:2 "Moreover it is required in stewards that a man be found faithful."

Wise Woman
Proverbs 14:11 "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands."

Proverbs 18:15 "The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge."

Proverbs 24:3-4 "Through wisdom is a house builded; and by understanding it is established. And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches."

The Wise Woman
Proverbs 31:27 "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness."

The one I keep foremost in my heart and mind, as I watch our world changing literally day by day before our very eyes and not knowing what is going to happen to our wonderful country is:


Psalm 37:25 "I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not see the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."

We want to include YOUR ideas, tips and secrets. We certainly know we do not know it all!!! Please submit them to us and we will add them to this blog.

Thank you again for coming by and checking us out. We will not necessary be posting every day and some days you may find multiple posts if we all have something the same day. I hope you will add this blog to your favorites, or bookmark it, so you can readily find us. I trust we can all grow together in the Lord as we serve, first HIM, our households, and each other.
