Welcome to my crazy little world where bargains rule the day. For me, spending less on food and other necessities allows me to spend more time with family and do the things that feed my soul. You’ll see that I aim to be frugal in my work and home life.
I come by my frugal nature quite easily. I was raised primarily by a mom who had to go it alone most years and my grandparents who lived through the depression era. We never went hungry growing up and I am proud to say we were exposed to many cultural things through books, music and the sharing of our family ancestry. We were loved beyond measure and our caregivers demonstrated an excellent work ethic be it at a place of employment or a church function.
What is the story behind the name? Well beyond the obvious “frugal” part, my German grandmother had a childhood friend named Lena. Apparently my mother reminded her of Lena so she gave her the nickname Lena. Then years later I came along and I look a lot like my mother so I inherited the name.
My hope is that you will find at least one thing that will bless your life each time you read a new post. So grab your favorite beverage, kick your feet up and read on!
