About Me

Hello, I’m Amanda, the blogger behind The Frugal Greenish Mama.  I am just what the title says-I am a mama, a very frugal person and am striving to live in a greener way.  I am a wife, mother of two beautiful blessings.  Austin is my 5 year old son and Adalynne is my 3 year old year princess.

We are striving to live a full, simple life the way that God intended us to live.  We are wannabe homesteaders, with a dream of living a full, simple life.

I love to garden and watch things grow.  I love crafts when the time can be found.  I love to cook & bake from scratch.  I love spending time with my family and watching my children make new discoveries each and everyday.  My hearts desire is to be a stay at home mom so that I don’t miss anything!  (Afterall that is how God intended it to be).

Our journey down a more natural/organic lifestyle began about 5 years ago when my husband began his struggle with a rare blood disease.  HIs oncologist encouraged us to start looking into some of the chemicals we used in our home.  They do not know what causes Bryan’s disorder but we started eliminating cleaning products and started adding organic foods into our diet as we could.  Countless medications and 2 rounds of chemo later our family has made many changes, we are continuing to make changes slowly.

I hope that through my blog, others will realize that even a family on a very tight budget (like we are) can feed their family the best wholesome organic foods.  I am by no means an expert, this blog in simply to share our journey as we continue down the road of a simple, more self-sufficient lifestyle.  I hope that through our journey, others realize that they too can make changes in their lives to benefit their family, as well as the environment.

We love traveling and seeing new places, as well as old favorites (WALT DISNEY WORLD).  My children even though young, love to travel and have high hopes of traveling the world!

Thank-you for taking a few minutes of your day to stop by.  Please visit often and feel free to openly share your thoughts.

Make the most of each and everyday you are given!
