About Me


Hello, and welcome to Thrifty Wife, Happy Life!  I'm so happy that you're here!

My name is Katie!  I'm a Michigan native, living in Las Vegas, Nevada.  I've been married to my husband, Kevin since May 2011.  We met in college through our sorority and fraternity.  I'm a preschool teacher and he's an airline pilot.  We welcomed our son Jack to our family in February 2016. 

I started this blog a few years back as a way for me to share my creativity with my affordable wardrobe.  Saving money and living a debt free lifestyle is very important to my husband and me. Even though I love to shop, I try to stick to a very tight budget.  I love to be creative with my wardrobe and mix it up with new and old purchases.  I'm a huge fan of thrift shopping, clearance deals and getting a good sale where ever I can.  I believe that you don't need to spend a lot of money on your wardrobe to be stylish on the outside and feel great on the inside.

Along with bargain shopping, I also love to talk about makeup, beauty and motherhood!  This blog is always evolving as my life changes, but my message is always the same.  I want people to know that you don't have to spend a lot of money to live a happy fulfilling life.  Finding contentment in what you have is the key to happiness!
