Preserved Home provides women with recipes, tips and tricks to manage their homes. Budget cooking, sewing, homeschooling, and articles about family life are profiled. I am always so excited to talk about fun things I’m doing around the home, and I want to share my enthusiasm and ideas with others. The projects I do are easy and budget-minded, and anyone can do it.

Many of us choose to forgo a second income to stay home with our children – – a financial sacrifice to say the least. But single income families don’t need to keep up with the duel incomers – – we can have our own fun and conveniences on a dime!

Convenience food for busy nights is pricey, so why not make it yourself and stash it in the freezer, or even can them? Things for the home such as curtains, placemats, and pretty napkins are often an unbudgeted luxury. Create your own. Part of my mission is to show the stay-at-home mom ways to still have nice things for your home without the expense, but with a little elbow grease. And I also hope working moms enjoy this site as well, and have fun saving their hard-earned money, while getting creative. While this blog is geared towards full-time homemakers, I hope working moms will enjoy it too.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a wife, and homeschool mom to two little girls. I’ve been married to my husband for 16 years. Before children, I worked as a Congressional and campaign press secretary, political writer and adviser to elected officials. I now fold laundry while watching the State of the Union instead of writing responses to the speech — laundry that has been washed in homemade laundry soap, of course.
