My Blogging Journey

When I first started blogging back in 2012 I was known as,  Frugal in Fort Wayne and Beyond, I was a coupon and deal blogger. I started out by being a VA for A Proverbs Wife. I then became passionate about couponing, and I worked under her wing where she took me under her wing and really taught me so much.

With the knowledge I had, I started my own blog. I have transformed over the years, on what I was writing about. From doing coupons and deals to reviews. I now focus mainly on food and crafting.

In January 2018, I quit my job and went into blogging full time. This was the best career choice, I am now my own boss and I get to cook and craft for a living. Before I took the plunge I bartended and work as a hairstylist in a salon.
