Hello! I’m Cassie. I’m a wife and mom of two living in Northwest Arkansas who is passionate about budgeting, meal planning, organizing, de-cluttering, and of course family.

I have been a full-time homemaker since the spring of 2018 after about a decade long career in accounting. I have long enjoyed baking bread and from-scratch meals for my family but often fell short of being consistent with it when I worked full time. It has been a joy and a privilege to be able to take care of my family more fully in the last year and a half. I am all about expanding my horizons as a work at home mom to make sure this opportunity to be with my kids more is not a fleeting one. I love a good side hustle, and aside from this blog I also do occasional freelance bookkeeping, taste testing, and the odd babysitting job for extra income.

We live consumer debt free since we sold our first home last year. I am a Young Living Distributor and passionate about raising my family in a healthy, toxin-free home all while living on a small budget. This involves a lot of DIY recipes, which doesn’t bother me at all! Follow along on the Non-Toxic Home page as I chronicle my frugal oily adventures. You can also follow along on my oil Instagram page, @anoilylifeonadime.

A few months after launching this blog I also started a YouTube channel of the same name. I’d love for you to check it out! I talk about all the things I’m passionate about as well as post DIY videos there.

I previously kept a private blog chronicling our first home’s renovation. I’ve loved writing for as long as I can remember and look forward to sharing with you and hearing what you have to say as well.

Happy budgeting and thanks for being a frugal friend!
