Hi, I’m Jessica Hawney. First and foremost, I am a child of God, my husband’s girlfriend and mother of two wonderful, rambunctious kids (Chloe 5, Bryce 4). My husband is a youth pastor and I am a stay-at-home, home school mom in the Bay Area of California. When I’m not busy with my family and church, you can find me crafting, cooking, couponing, customizing, etc.
Being a single income family, especially in the Bay Area, can be challenging, but I love finding new ways to save money. I have found that we can still do fun things as a family and eat healthy when we budget our money well and prioritize. Living frugally doesn’t mean not living!
I used to be an event/wedding planner, as well as work at JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels, so creating is my passion. I buy all of our clothes at thrift stores or garage sales, and shop Craigslist for household items, hardly ever paying full retail for anything.
I also enjoy refurbishing furniture and DIY projects, so you might find some of those examples on this site in the future.
If you need to contact me for any reason, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
