Hey, y’all (insert southern accent)! I’m Michelle, a stay-at-home mom three, all five and under. When I’m not cleaning the house, changing diapers, preparing meals, or using the bathroom, I can be found blogging on scoring some fabulous deals and awesome DIY tips here on my blog. My passion is helping others save money, and I couldn’t stop once I gave up my career to stay-at-home with the kids about 6 years ago.
I absolutely love helping people with their finances, having been in the banking industry 10+ years, but when I quit BECU in February 2008, due to my husband having to PCS from the Pacific NW all the way to North Carolina, I had no idea what job opportunities I would have. Fortunately, I was able to volunteer with the Red Cross, and eventually, work at another credit union. But after having to PCS again, I knew it was time for a change, and I had always wanted to be my own boss, so that’s when the Military Wives Saving blog was born.
Aside from blogging, I absolutely love spending time with my family, reading, sleeping (because that’s rare around here), watching reality television shows, and exploring new restaurants. I have a Bachelors in Psychology, love dabbling in web design, and (surprise!), have a background in journalism (I ♥ to write)! In fact, I even wrote for the Smart Savings column in the Fayetteville Observer while we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC!
