Welcome to Fabulessly Frugal! We are so happy to have you here. Let us introduce ourselves and show you some of who is behind things here at Team Fab.
Cathy: Dreamer, Founder & CEO
Hello everyone! I am Cathy, the founder behind Fabulessly Frugal. I am a mother to 8 pretty fantastic children (well, maybe 9 of you count the blog! ) and I’ve been married to “Mr Fab” for 25 years!
I enjoy LEARNING new things. I used to love to read, but don’t have time for that anymore. So instead I listen to Audible while I drive. I take care of myself by waking early and enjoying quiet mornings, buying myself flowers from Trader Joes, and teaching BODYPUMP at the YMCA a couple times a week.
I started this blog in 2008 as a way to document the awesome deals that I was finding at the grocery store. I cringe at paying full price for anything and have gotten pretty good at finding a deal! Over time, Fabulessly Frugal has turned into a resource for women to turn to for finding tips on how to live a healthy, wealthy, wise life full of independence and confidence.
My goal is to help each of you feel financially independent because that is a feeling unlike any other! You can read my own personal story and how my family worked through a job loss and avoided a home foreclosure and bankruptcy in the New York Times Magazine article here. This is why I am passionate about empowering women and helping them see that the little efforts they make each day can truly make a BIG impact over time!
I am a mother and I get how hard it can be! That is why I make sure Fabulessly Frugal is full of “mom proof” recipes, DIYs, tips, and tricks so that you can focus the majority of your attention on your kids and use our tips to help you save money, time, and effort.
I am here to help you become the best you can be. You will often see me and my kids on Facebook Live testing out new products and offering you deals on the ones we love. I’m a pretty chill person that is “real”. After my 8th baby I started a health and life journey that resulted in a 60 pound weight loss. I am also passionate about helping people improve their health.
At the end of the day, I am here for you! I started this blog because I truly love helping others! Feel free to contact me at any time cathy @fabulesslyfrugal (dot) com!
BJ: The Fab Chief Strategy Officer
Hello, I’m BJ. In 2008 I Co-Founded a daily deal business called CitySmart.com. During our launch, I tracked down all coupon bloggers in Boise, where I originally met Cathy. A few years later I became a partner in DiscountQueens.com, which we eventually merged into Fabulessly Frugal in 2015.
My role on the blog is everything growth and user experience related! I’ve been heavily focused on re-building the blog, strategy, and building our app. I manage everything technical & assist Cathy in training and recruiting our team.
In June ’18 we sold our home and moved to Cancun, Mexico for an adventure on the beach. In the true spirit of finding a good deal, we are selling high and will come back to purchase our next home once the housing market has settled down. In my spare time, we rock climb, backpack, travel and spend time with our 3 daughters.
Stacy: COO and Fab Team Manager
Hi! I am Stacy and I am the Team Manager at Fabulessly Frugal. I guide our Fab Team of content creators, deal hunters, junior writers, and senior writers in their efforts to bring you the best deals and content to help make you healthy, wealthy, and wise. I love to save money, I love to teach others how to save money, and finding great deals is my specialty. My goal is to help our readers to save on things they need and on things they want. Why pay full price when you don’t have to?? I never do!
I am frugal by nature, and I was raised to value every penny. My background is in corporate accounting, but I found coupon blogging in 2010, started my own site, and gladly left the corporate world behind. I LOVE what I do and I LOVE the team we have! I am a wife and a mom, and now that I am in my 40s I finally feel like I have a handle on it all (most days lol – other days I can be a total hot mess)! I admit I work too much, but in my free time I like to unwind with some TV or a good book. I am a hockey fan (Go Stanley Cup 2019 Champion Blues!) and you will also find me cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals! I am tenacious, strong, and fiercely loyal. I love spending time with my family and friends. As a family we enjoy camping and the outdoors. You will also find us doing anything fun around our awesome home city, St. Louis “The Lou”, and our beautiful state of Missouri. My goal is to travel more now that our daughter is old enough to really enjoy and remember it!
I love to hear from our readers! Email me at stacy @fabulesslyfrugal (dot) com!
