Hi! I’m Ashlyn, a working mother with a love for sparkly vintage things, do-it-yourself projects, healthy eating, coffee, fitness, animals (especially horses), and anything that saves me money. My husband and I share a great love story along with a strong passion for budget friendly shopping. We have had many great trips to antique shops, flea markets, yard sales, and our favorite little thrift stores. Our time together has taught us that money doesn’t buy happiness. Savvy tricks, unique pieces and imagination really make a house a home and your closet “designer”. To say the least we both love the find!

With our own path to savings, furthered by the birth of our beautiful daughter, I wanted to build a blog catered to the vintage hunter, budget friendly shopper, and DIY-er. I can create a custom closet, decorate an entire room, custom and/or repurpose furniture, and get equipped for special moments like weddings or a new baby all on a strict budget. Shopping at second-hand venues will make your money stretch much farther. On average, used products are generally at least 50% cheaper, which allows you to save money for other important expenses (aka child’s college for me). Not only are you benefitting your own budget by shopping used but you are also supporting local businesses, charities, the economy and environment.

I hope you enjoy my path to savings and my adventures through local and used markets!
