We are so glad you found the Frugal in Fort Worth Blog ~ Your Local Guide to Savvy Savings & Celebrated Living! Welcome!
These Economic Times
Daily, we hear reports in the news media about hard economic times. Lately it seems that even personal conversations are full of words like “down-sizing” (a.k.a. & more corporate politically correct: “right-sizing”), “foreclosures,” “recession,” and the list goes on!
Rather than dwell there, I have decided to come alongside others and “link arms” as we walk this economic road and get to the other side.
A Bit of Encouragement
Through this blog, I hope you find encouragement for becoming financially free and solutions for reducing your family expenses. My hope is that I am able to give you fresh ideas on how to stretch your family’s funds, save money for the future, and get out of debt ~ all while having some fun along the way!
I invite you to join me on this journey and would love to hear YOUR ideas for how you are making a difference and reaching your goals with your family finances. Please feel free to share our blog with your friends and family, too!
A Little About Me
I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX and have spent my entire adult life in Central/North Texas (Howdy!). I now live in the suburbs of Dallas/Fort Worth and within a few miles of my home, I have buffalo, cattle, oil wells, and yea verily, “ya’ll” even slips into the grammar! Yes, I’m a true blue Texan. Even so, I have Midwest roots, as I was raised by parents from the heart of Kansas’ ranching and wheat land.
I have my parents to thank for teaching me the importance of staying out of debt, the value of making every dollar count, and the significance of saving for the future. They taught me to save, give, and spend less than I earned.
Along the way, I also learned that this is not my/our money, it is God’s, and we are entrusted and responsible to manage what God gives us for the short time we are on this Earth. My heart is to help others learn how to better manage their finances God’s way and to join others on this journey to faithfully living by God’s principles in every area of their lives.
