About Me


Hello, and welcome to my blog!  I'm so happy that you're here!

My name is Katie.  I'm a Michigan native living in Las Vegas.  I married my husband Kevin in May of 2011.  We met in college through our fraternity and sorority.  He is an airline pilot and I'm a preschool teacher.  We welcomed our son Jack in February 2016.  I absolutely love being a mom and I hope to have one more one day when the time is right. 

I started Thrifty Wife, Happy Life in the fall of 2013 as a way for me to share my creativity with my affordable wardrobe.  Saving money and living a debt free lifestyle has always been very important to my husband and me.  Even though I love to shop, I try to always 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!
