About Me

When I was a senior in high school my AP American History teacher called me a "radical conservative". At the time I didn't really understand what he meant since I identified myself as a liberal Democrat. Over the years, though, I have realized that he was exactly right; it just took me a while to embrace my "radical conservatism". I feel like I'm a good combination of both liberal and conservative, depending on the topic. I'd say I'm really more of an economic libertarian and a social conservative these days. And definitely FRUGAL and OPINIONATED. To be a homeschooling mother of "many" running a household on one income you almost can't survive without being frugal and opinionated!

So that's what this blog will be about -- my frugal and opinionated life. Pour yourself a cup of tea and come have a chat with me.
