Hi, I’m Savanah. I’m a happily married mother of four “little” boys. Cameron is 11, Connor is 9, and Gavin & Garrett are 6! We are a year-round homeschooling family that loves to focus our geography lessons on whatever area my husband gets sent to work. He’s a directional drill operator for Michels & is gone for 6-10 weeks at a time (that basically means he drills holes for the really big water, oil, gas, and other utility pipes around our country & even Canada).
I started blogging to help others save money but quickly realized that although I love helping people spend less on things they don’t need, I really want to help people live a better life! I have two autoimmune diseases and really wanted to share what helped me be healthier, the tips & tricks that use to navigate through daily life, raising kids without losing my mind, staying connected to my husband through the long trips away, and our homeschool adventures.
I love to spend my time playing with the boys & watching as they master new skills, creating new Paleo recipes in the kitchen (along with a few simple & easy cheat recipes), finding creative ways to finish paying off all my student loans, and curling up with a cup of hot cider or tea after everyone has gone to bed for a little me time. I love exploring my home state (Iowa) and surrounding areas. Every time we take a road trip, I learn something new. Did you know there is a FREE zoo in Byron, Minnesota? We found it a couple summers ago while exploring & the kids loved it much more than our local zoo.
