About Me

Hi, my name is Christina.

Christina @TheFrugalHomemaker.com

I am so glad you stopped by to visit The Frugal Homemaker!

I grew up in a very frugal home and am a homemaker at heart.  I love thrifting, shopping at yard sales, crafting, spray painting and working on Do-it-Yourself projects to decorate our home.  You could say I have “Pottery Barn style on a yard sale budget.”

Hence why “The Frugal Homemaker” was born! 🙂

I enjoy blogging and have greatly treasured the friendships I have found through the blogging community.  I am an internet addict and love to browse Pinterest, read other blogs, and find more ideas for creative ways I can decorate my home and make our lives better on a budget.

My frugal lifestyle doesn’t just stop inside my home though.  You can also find me blogging over at Centsible Savings.  I am a big couponer and save tons of money each week by stockpiling what is on sale, using coupons, and basing my menu on what I have on hand and what is on sale.  If you are interested in saving 40-60% off your grocery bill, decreasing your Christmas and birthday budget, preparing frugal meals, and much more, come check out my tips at Centsible Savings!

Some other things about me:

I have been married to my best friend for 9 years.  I am so thankful for my husband and the wonderful marriage the Lord has blessed us with!

We love taking trips (especially to the beach!) and spending time together.  We also enjoy serving our Lord together in our local church.  We are privileged to lead the college age group and we love being a part of “our college kids” lives.  I also am the shower coordinator, help plan and decorate for ladies activities, and many other things.  My husband serves as a deacon and Sunday school teacher.

Our family also consists of our adorable white cat named Casper. 🙂


When I am not online or spray painting something in the driveway, you can probably find me shopping yard sales or thrift stores, reading, cooking, decorating a cake, or playing with my nieces and nephew.

I hope you will stick around as I share my attempts to craft, thrift, DIY, paint, organize, decorate, and turn our house into a home on a budget.  Hopefully you will be inspired to do the same!
