Welcome to Fabulessly Frugal! We are so happy to have you here. Let us introduce ourselves and show you everyone who is behind things here at Team Fab.

Cathy: Dreamer & Founder

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 23 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 lifting weights during a BODYPUMP class at the YMCA three 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. I’ve been doing this by teaching people how to overcome their carb and sugar addictions by detoxing their bodies.

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 {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com!

Kelley: Advertising & Affiliate Manager

Hello friends! I am Kelley! I grew up in New Orleans and love me a good spicy meal!  But right now Moses Lake, WA is home and has been for the past 14 years.

I love love love to travel (particularly to anywhere warm or tropical 🙂 ).  I love to eat and shop and I drive way too fast.  I’m a big believer in working hard. I think you can get anywhere you want to be just by working hard and having a good attitude.

I’m an avid deal hunter and I love to save a buck! I’ve got 4 cute kiddos and I started really feeling the need to pinch pennies after my second child was born in 2006.

My first job in blog advertising was with a blog called Discount Queens. Shortly after I joined the Discount Queens team (a few years ago) we merged with Fabulessly Frugal, where I’m now working as the Advertising Manager.

I love to share deals with my friends and family and I have major buyers remorse if I have to pay full price for anything! I love working on Team Fab because we are a bunch of women who love a good deal and love to empower each other. What more could I want?

You can contact me at any time at advertising @ fabulesslyfrugal (dot) com!

Melanie: Expert Recipe Creator

Hello, I am Melanie! I have been part of the Fabulessly Frugal team since 2011. I am a pro at online shopping and I love delicious food. In fact, I have a passion for food and food photography.

For years I’ve been finding and tweaking recipes that meet my high expectations, and I publish these awesome recipes here on the blog!

A traumatic diagnosis for my son rocked my world in 2016, but it also increased my desire to be a light in the darkness and to help others. I am learning to let go of fear and rely on faith. Life isn’t always easy, but it is always a gift!

I enjoy spending my time caring for my three children and husband, researching recipes and making food for others, training our service dog, educating about natural solutions, and enhancing my life through personal development.

Fabulessly Frugal inspires me each day and I love being able to create recipes that will provide each of your families with nutrients and memories! Food is such a huge part of any family so might as well fill yourself with the BEST kinds of foods!

If you have any questions or recipe requests, contact me at melanie {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com!

Stacy: Lively Deal Team Manager

Hi! I am Stacy and I am the Deal Manager at Fabulessly Frugal. I guide our Fab Deal Team in their efforts to find you the best deals online. 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 am frugal by nature, and I was raised to value every penny. My background is in corporate accounting, but I found blogging in 2010, started my own site, and left the corporate world soon after. 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 mid-40s I finally 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 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 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 {at} fabulesslyfrugal {dot} com!

Karen: Avid Deal Hunter

Hi, I’m Karen and I am deal hunter for Fabulessly Frugal since 2017. I have always considered myself a frugal person and I can’t help but price-check nearly everything I buy! My quest as a deal hunter is to search for the very best deals.

I am a California girl, born and raised, but I have now found my home in rainy Washington! I live here with my wonderful husband, three kids, and our large yellow lab. We spend a lot of time playing sports, hiking, and camping.

In my free time, I enjoy sitting down (without interruptions!) and curling up with a good book or a pair of knitting needles. My favorite knitting projects are socks and shawls, but really anything that has intricate lace techniques.

My dream vacation would to explore a new national park or preserve. Getting away from technology and the hustle and bustle of the city to experience nature feeds my nature soul.

Shopping smart through deal hunting helps reach my personal goals! I’d like to help you find bargains and live Fabulessly Frugal!

Becca: Avid Deal Hunter

I am very excited to have joined the Fabulessly Frugal Team in 2017. Deal hunting has been a passion of mine for the last 18 years. I know the excitement of getting a great deal and love how Fabulessly Frugal does the work for you.

I hale originally from Boise Idaho. I attended Boise State University and now love to cheer on the Broncos from the town of Brigham City, Utah. (Just like Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show) When we first moved here, with no stores near I went through serious Target withdraws. I soon learned to appreciate the wonderful world of online shopping and find online deals through Fabulessly Frugal.

 I am very proud and grateful to be married almost 20 years to my husband. We have three beautiful daughters. I am now officially the shortest in my family and tall people surround me. My family constantly has to tell me to take my “mom-goggles” off because I think my family is wonderful in every way. We love to grow our own food; we have 15 box gardens, 5 fruit trees, and a beehive.

Fitness has been a big part of my life for years. Recently I have loved Daily Burn and Yoga. I wish I chose to read more but find myself laughing at TV shows like The Middle, The Goldbergs, Jimmy Fallon and Great News.

Kevin: Avid Deal Hunter

Aloha from Hawaii! My name is Kevin and I live out on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii. My wife and I met here 3 years ago while attending school at BYU-Hawaii and it’s been a rollercoaster of adventures ever since.

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned while living in Hawaii it’s you have to find those good deals to get by. Living in Hawaii can be extremely expensive and over time I’ve developed an eye for a great deal and this helped me save money and be able to travel the world all while finishing school!

My wife and I love the outdoors and anything that comes with it. Surfing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, traveling, volleyball and road trips are just a few of the things we can’t seem to get enough of.

I always love to share a good deal with friends and absolutely cringe when I see someone pay more than they needed to for something. I’ve loved working with Fabulessly Frugal and can’t wait  to bring you more incredible deals!

Anna: Awesome Deal Writer

Hi everyone! My name is Anna and I have been with Fabulessly Frugal since 2017. I have always loved thrifty shopping and have found my place in the deal diva world! With a big family, you have to save a penny wherever you can! I am a stay at home mom who decided to go back to work when my husband started grad school.

I live in my home town in Idaho and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 years. We have 5 amazing kids that keep me super busy. We love sports, camping, and being in the outdoors. In my free time, if I have any, I like to craft and read.

I have always loved looking for great deals and sharing them with my friends. Working at Fabulessly Frugal has given me the opportunity to share what I find with all of my new friends in the blogging world! What an amazing job!

Nina: Awesome Deal Writer

Hello, I am Nina! I have awesome 4 boys and have been Married to my super supportive husband for 10 years!

After, having my first child I realized how expensive baby items were and that made me want to save somewhere and I figured that was a great place to start, then a year and a half later after baby #2 and having 2 in diapers is when I really took off with saving, and refused to pay full price for anything.  Ever since then I always find a deal and save, after seeing how much you can save by not paying full price I now refuse to pay full price for things.

I am the person my friends and family call to help them save if they are looking for something and don’t want to pay full price, that is how I ended up at Fabulessly Frugal.  I said I wish I could do this for others and now my wish is a reality and I get to share deals daily and I love it!  I also love the team we have here, it is more a family then a team!

In, our spare time, we love to spend time outdoors and traveling.  We love to give our kids experiences of seeing and doing new things.

If I could do one thing it would be to have more of a green thumb and have a garden.  I have always loved how gardens are so beautiful and not to mention how great the fresh veggies taste from a garden!
