About Me

It's me









Hi! I’m Kristie from savingpenniesblog.com.

I’m so excited to meet you 🙂

Here are a few things about me you might like to know:

I have already raised 5 children, homeschooled them, and now they are all on their own and have given me several wonderful grandchildren.

I have been married to my wonderful hubby for 36 years (as of July 2017).

I have worked from home as a medical transcriptionist for over 10 years. It filled a need, but now I’m so hoping to be able to quit and make blogging and homemaking my full time lifestyle. It is my calling. For 25 years, I was a housewife/homeschool mom, but then, because of unfortunate events, I had to go to work…and I’m still working.

Through all of my married life, we have had to make ends meet. It is better now that it is just hubs and I at home (we can actually buy things like ice cream now LOL), but I have always tried to find ways to save money to make it stretch further and I LOVE to share my tips with people. I am always learning new things myself and get so excited when I find a new gadget or some new tip or trick to save money. Sometimes they work out and sometimes they don’t.

I enjoy the simple life and try to be more self sufficient. We usually have chickens around here and sometimes other farm animals.

So, I hope you enjoy what I will be sharing, just some of the things I have learned over the years and new stuff I’m learning every day 🙂


P.S. I also have a new hobby of dot painting and have an Etsy store for that too if you want to check it out!
