About Me


photo(3)           It all started with a nerdy girl meeting her geeky love.  We’re raising our 2 awesome kids in a small town, way up north. Living a simple life on a budget.

I was an average kid who became a chubby teenager. After meeting my (now) husband and moving across state the weight totally crept up on me. Then I had 2 kids fifteen months apart and woke up as the fat mom.

Now that I’ve cleared the heavy fog that severe postpartum depression was for me, I don’t even recognize myself anymore.

I am taking back my power. I am making my health a major priority. I will lose the weight, get my health back, and find my happiness.

The major catch to all that is… I’m a stay at home mom on a small budget for a family of four. But, I truly believe your health and happiness shouldn’t be based on your bank account.

That’s what I’m all about. I write about living a frugal, healthy, and happy life. Eating healthy, staying active, keeping a clean home, and living on a shoestring budget. I’ll share my journey and how it’s helping my family (and how it could help your family!)

Hopefully sharing my adventures will help others take that step towards losing weight and living a healthy life.


I hope that everyone can take something away from simplyonabudget.com!

Thanks for stopping by!
