Here at Get More For Your Money you’ll meet Trish, mom of 10 kids and her construction project manager/carpenter husband. One child is married, another is away at college, so there are 10 people living at home. We put on an addition for DH’s parents, so they live next door. There’s never a dull moment. We’ve been married almost 30 years and most of it we’ve been statistically poor. I’m here to show that frugal elegance is possible and to recommend it to all. Even if you have plenty of money, if you can live well on less, you can be generous to charities or have a healthy savings account. It’s all about getting more for what we spend around here.

You’ll also meet Granny who will drop in occasionally for a pithy comment under “granny sez”. She says what other people are thinking but are too polite to say.
