All About the Fabulessly Frugal Team…

Cathy YoderCathy – Fabulessly Frugal Co-Founder

I love finding a great deal!  I never pay full price for anything if I can help it.  I also enjoy the convenience of shopping online… It saves me a TON of time, which is something I’m limited on because I have 8 children!  Yes.  That is right.  8 children and they all belong to me and my hubs.  You can read more about my family in the New York Times Magazine article here.  In the fall of 2014, just 6 weeks after having my 8th child, I decided that I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired… and started my journey of going from 185 pounds to 130 pounds.  I share my story of how I did this here.   I am passionate about saving money, feeling good, and living a fabulous life on less!  You can contact me at cathy {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com

Monica – Fabulessly Frugal Co-Founder

In 2008 when I Cathy and I started Fabulessly Frugal I knew very little about blogging and had no idea that you could have a business blogging. It has been an incredible experience working with Cathy and our team to build a business online. One question we often get asked is how we make money blogging. Read this article if you want to know how we make money blogging. When I am not blogging I can be found spending time with my family. I have two boys and a wonderful husband. We love to snowmobile, hike, ride motorcycles and enjoy the outdoors together. My husband and I love to play volleyball together, listen to motivational books, workout at the gym, and plan strategies to stay financially fit long term. My mission in being a part of Fabulessly Frugal is to Empower people, specifically women to make positive choices and changes. I want to support that in these four ways; Physically, Financially, Emotionally, and Spiritually.  Read my story about how I lost 25 pounds and you can contact me at monica {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com

Becky – Manager

Before joining the team she worked outside the home, mainly in an administrative roll.  Now that she’s the manager of she loves to share the great deals she finds, and loves to check them out herself.  Since giving birth to her second child in 2013, saving has become even more important. Coupons, Online Deals, and saving on her day to day expenses help keep her at home, with her kids (Bee and Bug).  Her favorite thing about is being able to share great savings, and live a fabulous life on less!  Becky has been using doTERRA essential oils on and off for a few years, but in early 2015 she got really excited and them and her passion for helping to put a healer in every home. Her favorite essential oil is Frankincense – she says, “Frankincense is beyond amazing. It makes every oil work better and has some amazing properties to it! But my very favorite doTERRA product is the LifeLong Vitality Supplements. I wouldn’t live without them and their amazing benefits!” You can email Becky at becky {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com

Melanie’s frugal fashion tips… I like to shop online whenever possible. I can still use coupons/coupon codes on sales that are in the stores. Just make sure you are familiar with the return policy. My fashion tip: Don’t buy it unless it fits well and is flattering, no matter how cheap it is.

Amber – Online Shopping Expert

Amber grew up in various locations throughout the Treasure Valley but she now calls Caldwell home. She has two daughters, ages 5 and 7. If you ask any of her friends who the cheapest person they know is, the answer would be Amber, without a doubt! She is a DIY and a re-purposing type of girl, who lives the motto “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure”. Upcycling (picking up what others might call junk and turning it into useful items) is a way of life for Amber!

Social Media Team

Hannah Bio PictureHannah – Social Media Manager

Hannah, manages the social media aspects of the blog.  Hannah has ALWAYS been frugal… Frugality was a key to her family when she was a kid… “I remember making homemade cleaning products, cutting coupons, shopping sales, and finding creative ways to stretch a dollar. My Mom taught me so many ways to save money, reuse things, and be crafty without spending anything!! So many precious memories were made in the process, and I hope to pass that on to my own kids. It’s my desire for them to see the usefulness and value with what we have before looking to buy something new.” You can email Hannah at hannah {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com
