Hello my name is Nora and welcome to Frugal Smart Mom, my lifestyle and personal finance blog! 

I finished graduate school in 2017 with a mountain of debt, fortunately I went through undergraduate for free. I am also a new mom to an adorable little boy and was blessed to have been able to stay home with him. I then decided to start a blog to share my financial journey, tips for parenthood, organization, productivity and saving money. 

Ever since I was a child I made every penny count. I would coupon and get free items to save money throughout undergraduate, which saved a lot of money. Couponing made me realized the possibility of saving money was endless. I have learned and gathered many resources throughout the year and I want to share it with you all.

During undergrad, I tried to start a coupon blog and boy it was a lot of work. I spent a few months on it and eventually did not keep up with it. Then I started a blog in 2017 before my baby was born but had it under construction for a few months not really doing anything with it.

I think it was overwhelming sinceeI was and am still new to blogging. Not to mentinoned when my son was born, I totally didn’t have time to work on the blog. Instead, I was trying to get as much sleep as possible (which was very much).

I don’t know why I decided to start a blog for a third time! But, I know I felt different about the blog this time around, I was more motivated and interested. So, I followed my gut and thought of a name for my new blog before the sale was over.

The name of this blog, Frugal Smart Mom really decribes who I am in just three simple words. I am glad I started this blog in order to help share my financial journey, tips for parenthood, organization, productivity and saving money. 

Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
