All About Team Fab

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 nearly 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 Expert

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?

Melanie: Recipe Creator and Expert

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!

Sheyanne: Lively Blog Manager

Hello Frugal Readers! I am Sheyanne, the Blog Manager here at Fabulessly Frugal. I take care of everything you see on the homepage and make sure it is plump full of things you all want to read.

Before starting here at Fabulessly Frugal in 2017, I blogged for Lucky Magazine and ran a personal blog. When the opportunity to work here came to me, I was thrilled and excited for this new adventure.

I love writing and helping others solve problems with the things that I write. My passions include fashion, photography, and baking. I love the outdoors and you can find me at the beach or the mountains every moment that I can slip away.

If I could do one thing with my life, I would travel around the entire world non-stop! I love to spend all my extra pennies on traveling and that is why I LOVE living a frugal lifestyle! Saving up little by little let’s me travel and do what I love most.

I was born and raised in Oregon, but am currently living on the North Shore of Oahu with my awesome husband. I love my little island life and the way this place inspires me each day.

Living in Hawaii (where everything is expensive) has taught me how to find the best deals and how to practice patience when purchasing to make sure I get the right price! I love the feeling you get when you check out and see the price drop after applying all the coupons or sales!

And that is why I love my job working here helping people like me who love to live fabulous lives while still living frugally and within their budgets!

You can contact me any time you wish at sheyanne {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!
I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me at Karen [at] fabulesslyfrugal [dot] com.
