Hi, I’m Kate!

I’m a wife of Chris, mom of two boys Monkey & Crab, dog mom to Ruby & Jeter, an endurance runner, photographer, writer, foodie, and academic librarian.

More realistically, I’m a “Jack of All Trades and Master of None”, but really isn’t that better than being a Master of One?

Photos that are not my own are from Unsplash because they are amazing.

If you’re curious to learn more about me… go here.

Oh yeah, I’m The Frugal Mom$ter, too.

The Frugal Mom$ter began as an idea to share frugal living with everyday modern families. Often times we assume frugal living is a miserly existence, but you can be luxuriously frugal, too!
