278My name is Katey and I am a wife, mom, and daycare provider.  I love finding cost effective ways to live!  If you’re like me, you love to search Pinterest or the web, but when you bring up that delicious recipe or DIY project, you just go “REALLY!”  Join me as I find practical and realistic ways to cook, clean, shop, and have fun!  I’m all about doing, but you don’t have to break the bank to do it.

I have a wonderful husband, we’ll call him “hubby” for the sake of the blog, and beautiful little girl “E”.  My day job is a family child care in our home but with a 60+ hour work week (by the time you do care, record keeping, lesson planning, grocery shopping, etc), I need an escape.  This blog is a kind of escape from that.  So, while you may hear me mention it once in awhile, this is not an outlet I’m going to share lesson plans, project ideas, or other child care related topics on.

I’m here to bring cost effectiveness into your everyday life, while still being able to LIVE life!
