Hello, my name is Marissa Lauren Winfrey and I have been living the frugal life ever since I can remember. I have always looked for great bargains and getting the best value for my money without compromising style and quality.
My background is in visual display and interior decorating. It’s always been my objective to recommend cost effective solutions to my clients. I, of course practice what I preach. I have furnished my own homes mostly with furnishings and decor items from estate sales, discount stores, flea markets, yard sales, thrift stores and even curbside discarded furniture!
My frugal practice goes beyond the home. I offer money saving tips on just about everything, from shoe shopping to car insurance to utilities. I hope my blog and website TheFrugalLifestyle.com will inspire everyone to be their own Frugalista.
