    Default Hello!

    Hi everyone,
    I just joined this morning and will answer the questionaire below.

    Looking forward to getting to know y'all and learing from each other!

    Blessings,
    Crystal

    How did you hear about frugal village?

    I did an internet search for frugality

    What interests you here?

    Talking with others that share some of the same views as myself - I'm hoping to learn from you all!!

    What will you contribute?

    Hopefully a lot! :-)

    Do you know any other members here?

    Not that I know of!

    How many kids? Ages?

    No children - the Lord has not blessed us.

    Tell us about yourself.

    I am a conservative Christan woman from Maine. I've been married to my best friend, Mark, for 16 years. We have a dream to someday own a farm that we can bring children onto to teach them country life (inner-city children).

    Do you own any pets?

    Yes - a cocker spaniel, Sam (12), a cat, Taz (16), a bunny, Fiona (age unknown - she was a rescue), and 8 chickens!

    Occupation?

    Keeper at Home

    Married or single?

    Married

    Interests and hobbies?

    I love saving money - I'm a coupon fanatic. The folks at church laugh at my couponing, in fun of course. They love it when I bring in boxes of goodies to share!!

    I also love photography - my husband is a photographer and he and I often work together on his business.

    I love to travel and have not taken a big vacation for a couple of years - I'm yearning for one though!!

    Thank you all for the kind and friendly welcome!

    I love these boards already (but already find myself using up a lot of my time on them...haha).
