Graduate School

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who is reading my blogs and let you know what has been up with me.  Older readers may note that I have not posted recently.  Well, that is because I have been finishing up a Master's of Science in Leadership and I am happy to announce that I am now a successful graduate of graduate school!!!

This has been quite an accomplishment for our whole family as my hubby and I home schooled our children along the way.  It is our hopes that graduate school will not only give us a means by which to pay for their education but that it will also inspire them to chase an education as well.

My degree had a vast focus on global citizenship, social awareness, ethics and culture.  It was quite an adventure that has rendered one professionally published (pending the ISBN) academic article regarding "Social Responsibility and the Morality of Profits."  I also have plans to finish at least one book over the summer as well as start post graduate school sometime in the fall. This has been a great experience and I would like to encourage all of my readers to continue their education for both the good of the individual as well as society.  There is nothing more socially responsible than the expansion of the mind.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
