Welcome to Considering frugal and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. My name is Catherine and I am the face behind Considering frugal.
Most of my older posts are about money saving frugal green tips while most of my newer posts focus on shopping local, and rants about our new home in Wyoming. I also recently merged another blog that I had called Homeschool Arizona. I kept this blog for the first few years that my kids were in school, but we have since moved to Wyoming and transitioned to traditional school. If you are a homeschooler you might still enjoy those posts.
I also published a devotional for Kindle called “Blessings in Job", which I am currently in the process of updating for re-publish. So look for it "coming soon" back to my blog for purchase. It was compiled during the 2007 recession when I took a lot of comfort from that particular book of the Bible. I am adding updates to include our journey to Wyoming and where we are now!
Here in Wyoming, I am super happy to work for Big Brothers Big Sisters! In addition to outreach and recruiting, I have the opportunity to plan some great fundraisers. Two of the annual fundraisers that I had the privilege of creating are our Summer Skateboard Deck Design Contest and The Great Cheyenne Bed Race. Here is a fun video from our first year!
Some things that make me happy are…
A good hair day, a new mascara, new boots, honeybees; Wyoming and Levi’s – yes, I know, it’s kind of an oxymoron; hit country, another oxymoron, specifically Dirks Bentley, Lady A, ZBB, Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley.
Just a few of my favorite foods are pulled pork, steak, coconut shrimp, sweet tea; honey – we call it liquid gold, Jello cake, and liquid cheese.
I am a beer snob – I like Porters and Stouts best, but I will always drink Fat Tire in a pinch. Death by Coconut Porter, Ivan the Terrible and Milk Stouts are my favorites.
I also like lavender, the smell of beeswax candles, Richie's smolder, Chloe’s dance moves and Richard all around.
My favorite movies; the one’s I can watch on repeat – My Big Fat Greek Wedding, because it reminds me of family, New in Town, it reminds me of growing up in the Midwest, and This is Forty, because it kinda makes me okay with being 38.Thank you again for stopping by.
