About Me

Welcome to my little slice of the web, I am so glad you stopped by. My name is Dawn and I am a proud wife, mom and kitty lover. I love playing in the kitchen, finding awesome shortcuts, taking road trips, checking out events, snapping awesome photos and chatting about it all!
I just relocated to Central Florida from little Rhode Island to seek BIG adventure.
After years of slaving away at office work, I suddenly found myself working at home.. for myself! But, the grass isn’t always greener because now I seem to have a lot more to do around the house. More laundry, dishes, cooking… HOMEMAKING! Ah! So, I decided to start sharing my own experiences with the world, because… it also makes me seriously happy to be able to!
Follow my journey:
I experiment and try random recipes, tricks and products. I love saving time, money so we can spend more time and money… HAVING FUN and enjoying new adventures!

I recently won honorable mention in the Family Dollar More for Less Challenge. The prize? I got to fly out to meet Pat Neely and cook my winning cake in his kitchen in Memphis!
I recently had the honor of being selected to work on a living room makeover with Raymour & Flanigan. Using my own creative ideas while working along with their team, I had the unique opportunity to share the process with my readers. This piece is currently being featured in an ad on HGTV.com.
I also share tips on the Family Dollar Blog
