Welcome to Frugally Blonde! I am so glad you are here! I’m Julie and I live in the suburbs of Indianapolis with my husband and son. In 2001 I quit my job as a preschool teacher for my dream job, stay at home mom. I thought I would stay at home with my son until he went to kindergarten and then I would head back to work. Instead, I found I had a passion not just for being a mom but for homekeeping too!
Here at Frugally Blonde, I share tips about cleaning, organizing, budgeting, and an occasional recipe or two. You can follow me on Pinterest or Facebook to see the latest here at Frugally Blonde. You can also subscribe to my email to get a weekly update with the latest blog posts.
Want to get started on your homekeeping adventures but don’t know where to start?
I became a certified organizational specialist after being tired of all the clutter around the house. After getting my house (and my family!) whipped into shape I created the 7 day decluttering challenge.

Check out these 5 tasks you should be doing every day for a cleaner home. I have a routine that I love to follow to make keeping the house clean easier.

I love organizing. I could easily spend hours (and tons of money!) in Ikea and The Container store looking at their organizational stuff. Unfortunately what I want and what I can afford doesn’t always match up. You can get organized for less money with my favorite tips to organize on a budget.
Here at Frugally Blonde I also like to share some money saving tips. I like to share the best things to buy each month plus some other fun money saving ideas.
