Creative solutions to everyday problems

Keeping house has it’s own problems. Doing it on a budget can be a challenge but with a little can-do attitude and a willingness to try and fail I know we can get there. This blog follows my adventures in frugal housekeeping.

Meet us


My name is Brittany but most people just call me B. That handsome devil next to me is my ever patient and wonderful fiance, Manny. Together we face whatever challenges life presents us.

Suddenly thrust into the world of housekeeping, I decided to keep my sanity by starting a blog documenting my adventures.

And of course, what would an adventure be without a challenge to go with it! So here I post recipes, cleaning hacks, anecdotes, and whatever else comes to mind all while doing this thing called life on a shoestring budget.
