    Hey everyone! I was a part of this forum about a year ago, but fell off the wagon. Sadly, I'm not online often so even though I'm back I won't be here that often

    Anyhow my name is Christina, but I go by Christi. I'm a 21 year old stay-at-home mom to my son Jacob and newlywed wife (as of the first of this month) to Alex. I've always had a problem with being frugal, but as time is going on the more and more I realize that I want to be that way. I'm the one who goes into a store and just looks, but feels obligated to buy something since I just walked around the place for an hour :-/. About a year ago I tried really hard to simplify our lives, getting rid of everything we didn't need, but we've accumulated even more now. We're moving into a new apartment next month and I'm really hoping to be able to completely change our lives at the time that happens. Since we're newly married it just seems like the *perfect* time for a new start.

    Also, are there other people here who are also into green living? I try to live as natural and green as I can - so it's hard being frugal sometimes while trying to do that as well. But I've thankfully found places online to buy products for about 45% cheaper than in store prices and learned to make other products myself.

    Anyways nice to meet you all, can't wait to look around!

    I find the more I check in the more I stay on the wagon.

    Even if you can't post often, hope you can at least read the posts. They help so much in our frugal journey.

    I'd have to agree - checking in often keeps my toes in the wagon

    Also, best way to start frugal green living (IMO) is with a jug of vinegar and a big box of baking soda

    Frugality & Green go hand in hand
