Hey y’all! Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Lauren Cook and I’m a full time wife, mommy and lab tech from Birmingham, Alabama. My husband Todd and I have been married almost eleven years and we have a seven year old son Caden that you will see from time-to-time and he actually takes most of my photos for the blog! He’s a young talent! Being thrifty and finding ways to save money is just something that comes natural to me. I’ve always had to work and make my own money, so I like to see my dollar stretch. And, who says you have to spend a fortune to stay on trend? From dinners on a budget, to styling your family to restoring thrift store furniture, I’m your girl! I look forward to your feedback and anything you’d like to see, let me know!
