We are so excited to include a great team of other Thrifty Couples on our site to help bring you the most relevant daily savings, deals, coupons and freebies to fit every savings personality, every stage of life, and every budget. We welcome you to read additional information about each of our Thrifty Couple contributors to understand their family dynamics and how their financial motivation to live as thrifty couples and families.
Meet the Team:
|Jake and Kiz live in a house with 5 bedrooms, 4 children, 3 goldfish, 2 felines, 1 dog, and a dove in a dying spruce tree. They spend their time playing in the garden, coupon shopping, and running their kids to and from trumpet lessons, piano lessons, and swimming lessons. Kiz is a Spanish teacher at a Christian school and enjoys donating her time at the local Pregnancy Care Center. They love their kids and know first hand the financial reality of raising a family in today’s society with four kids – the last two being twins. They used Dave Ramsey’s system to pay off their consumer debt many years ago and do their best to stretch their tight budget as far as it can go to enjoy life as a family of six.
|Mark and Desiree are parents of 6; Mark teaches college philosophy and Desiree is a homemaker and homeschooling mom. We’ve survived (and even sometimes thrived!) for many years on a very tight budget while raising a large family and while Mark finished his Ph.D. at the same time; we know up close the trials of the current economy, and are excited to share with you some deals and strategies that can help make ends meet, pay off debt, and meet your goals.!
|John and Darrelyn were just recently married. Darrelyn has been couponing for a couple of years, starting when a friend introduced her to the idea of saving money through the use of couponing. At first she started just as a hobby, and then it turned into a major way to save some money. Darrelyn is a Christian school teacher, and John has just recently earned his teaching degree and is currently looking for a teaching position. More than ever, John and Darrelyn need to save money because of their single income, and couponing has been a great way to save and make the ends meet. Darrelyn loves to find great deals online and at her local stores to save money on groceries, gifts, and some of the fun things in life.
|Mark and Lynda are a couple of baby boomers who love the Lord, life, fun, and cannot resist a deal. We really like saving money! Lynda has returned to college after raising children for 30 years to learn about computers and Mark is a CPA. We are a thrifty couple because we are trying to position ourselves to be ready financially for retirement and to be able to help others who are less fortunate, and to constantly discover ways people can save money and live life in service. Lynda and I would ultimately like to be in a good position financially and spiritually to be able to serve the Lord on some missions.
|Kael and Calli are a deal-seeking newlywed couple loving married life together. As busy and fiscally conscious college students, we are constantly on the lookout for useful and easily accessible deals. We want to thrive in our community and share our experiences with others who may have similar desires. We work throughout the summer and save our income to pay our living expenses throughout the school year which requires a lot of creative frugality. Some of our hobbies include: outdoor activities, college life, electronics, home crafts, cooking, and planning fun date nights.
