About

Who is Mrs. Money?

I’m a 30-something mama currently working at home.  I’ve been married to the love of my life, Mr. Money, since September 2005.  We have a daughter who was born at home in January 2012.

We believe in a simple, natural lifestyle.  We strive to not only save money, but reduce our consumption and live a little more green at the same time. Adding a baby into the mix has been so much fun, as we’re still striving to be green while raising our baby!

What do I Write About?

Here at the Ultimate Money Blog, you’ll find a vast variety of tips on saving money, living green, baby stuff, getting out of debt, and living simply.  I’m really passionate about helping others, and I try to share as many tips as I possibly can!

Why I Started Blogging

I’ve always been very frugal and money conscientious. When I started learning how to save money, I also realized how much “greener” we were living. We started by eliminating toxic household cleaners from our home and replacing them with homemade natural cleaners, and it all snowballed from there!

In 2007, my husband graduated culinary school, and we found ourselves over $36,000 in debt with his student loans. I had never been in debt before in my life and knew I wanted to eliminate it as soon as we could! In June of 2009, we paid off the last of our student loans. We’re now consumer debt free!

When I joined the world of blogging, I didn’t realize the vast information on personal finance that is available online. Not only have I been able to share my story of getting out of debt, but I have learned many valuable tips and made strong friendships.

    This is a great site! Well done!

    I too learned about being frugal from my mother. We’ve managed to pay off our house and a car in the last 5 years, plus do home renovations.

    We buy 99% of our clothes from op shops (we’re pretty choosy so we don’t look ‘second hand’) and I cut my own hair using a winged mirror.

    We still go out to dinner occasionally to reward ourselves for being good money managers.

    Thanks to my parents being good managers, I inherited some money from them this year and will be happy to have something to leave my own family in years to come.

    Hi,

    I love your site! I would love to read your take on dryer balls. Do they really work and save money or are they a rip off? I tried drying without the softener sheets, and our clothes were filled with static.

    Thanks!

    Hi Yelena! I actually have a pair of dryer balls, the plastic ones with the spikes. I really like the way that they work, but I’ve heard that they can be dangerous as they release chemicals as they are heated. I have heard wool dryer balls work well, and you can make them yourself. I’ll have to post a tutorial on that. As for fabric softener, we use vinegar and don’t have a problem with static. We also line dry most of our clothing.

    Hello,

    My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

    I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website at http://www.maacenter.org. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Bill
