About Me

I have always loved to cook, entertain, bargain shop and decorate my home. I reserved this website address to share my ideas of how to live the gourmet life while watching your budget!

Purpose and Use of this Site

The content on this site comes from my efforts to reduce cost of living while still living a gourmet life! Take a look at the “Tips for Tough Times” category which are things I have come across in my efforts to cut costs. They include bargain purchases, more effective use of things I already owned and free repairs that I had not expected. There are also categories for Recipes to make things you might otherwise buy, family recipes and more. Please enjoy!

It’s a challenge reducing cost while enjoying a gourmet life. I have found many rewards in these efforts – enjoying family, friends, my home life and an increase in my faith and spirituality!
