Hey, there! My name is Deana Hipwell. Welcome to my little blog about frugal and free homeschooling printables and resources, coupon tips and tricks, and homeschool family freebies. I am “The Frugal Homeschooling Mom.” I started this blog in February of 2009.
I’ve been living the “frugal life” for over 8 years, having quit work in 2008 as a Master’s level public school teacher to stay at home and homeschool. I am first and foremost a blogger, but also I enjoy ghostwriting, content writing for other bloggers and website owners, graphic design and therefore I am also a Virtual Assistant. For 8 years we lived off of a combined income that was less than I made as a teacher. Times were tough. This blog is the result of all I’ve learned through those years.
I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my family. For me, being a wife and mommy is the greatest joy on earth. It’s really all I’ve ever wanted to be. And homeschooling is what I feel God has called me to. I tried working outside of the home and I was miserable – my heart’s desire was to keep my home and be with my children. I may one day go back to working outside the home, but for now, this is where I am meant to be.
I enjoy bringing you information that may support you as you begin homeschooling your own children or that may help you live an abundant life on a not-so-abundant budget.
