My name is Mary and I currently live in Houston, TX. I teach elementary science. I also work an assortment of odd-jobs on the side to make ends meet. I am a new mother juggling my past financial mistakes with my current adult responsibilities. A big part of the reason I started this blog is to help other people that need a hand getting out of similar situations. The other part is to give me a place to record, reflect, and revise myself when needed. Follow me on my quest for thrift, easy money, and a ticket to sanity.
