Hi, there! Glad you stopped by!
In case you don’t know who I am, I’m Debi Taylor-Hough — author, speaker, editor, and (most importantly!) mom to three wonderful people.
And I’ve been doing this whole frugal/simple thing for a very long time. ♥
Over two decades ago, our family bucked the tide of late-20th Century American life. We became a one income family in a two income world. We set out on a journey toward frugal living and simplicity that quickly became an education in itself—and a rewarding, joy-filled lifestyle.
Through hard work and determination, our family:
- paid off outstanding consumer debt and medical bills
- radically reduced spending in every area of our lives
- and most importantly, lived to tell about it!
During our family’s lean times, we learned creative ways to stretch our limited finances while not sacrificing our quality of life.
I share my knowledge of cooking for the freezer in my first book, Frozen Assets: Cook for a Day, Eat for a Month. I’ve taught freezer-meal techniques to thousands of people through in-person workshops, discussion groups, radio programs, television spots, and a variety of on-line resources.
In my second book, A Simple Choice: A Practical Guide for Saving Your Time, Money and Sanity, I share some of what I’ve learned firsthand about raising a family and managing a household with limited time and money. And staying sane in the process!
Several more books are in the works, so check back for updates!
I regularly teach classes and workshops through women’s groups, churches, conferences, and community education programs on the topics of:
- living within your means
- simple living
- cooking for the freezer
- identifying personal priorities
- simplifying the holidays
- easy educational ideas for children
- writing workshops
- … and more!
I edit and publish, Simple Times, a free email newsletter reaching 27,000+ readers throughout the world. It’s one of the longest-running, continously published email newsletters online!
We started sending Simple Times to a small handful of frugal folk in early 1995 … and we’ve been at it ever since! Amazing. Where did the time go? I recently set up new online archives for Simple Times.
