Welcome to The Pennywi$e Playbook!
I’m Heather. If you’ve landed here on my site, it’s likely because you’re fabulously frugal, have exceptional taste and you were searching for inexpensive DIY awesomeness somewhere on the Interwebs.
The Pennywise Playbook is dedicated to providing you detailed how-tos for living a frugal yet modern lifestyle with class and creativity. My blog is loaded with crafting and home decor DIYs, home reno project how-tos, vegetarian and vegan recipes, budget tips and tricks, and LOTS more! All my posts centre around getting the most bang for your buck with any meal or project. I know you can live a beautiful, comfortable, creative and healthy lifestyle without breaking the bank.
Now what makes The Pennywi$e Playbook a bit different from other blogs? On my blog you will always find a complete financial breakdown of how much a recipe or project cost me. I promise to be upfront and completely honest with you about my budgeting and frugality strategies. I’ll be straight with you about how and where I caught items on sale and the tricks I used to make or cook things on the cheap. I’ll also be honest if I splurged, and admit whether that was a good decision or not. Because even with the best of intentions, our habits can’t always be perfect and I won’t hide my mistakes from you!
Personally, I hate reading financial news stories or blog posts about how someone did this fantastic thing (bought a huge house, had a fantabulous destination wedding in Italy, did an amazing home reno, etc.) but they don’t explain how they actually paid for it. It usually makes me feel like a Total Loser for not being able to accomplish that same financial miracle, and I don’t want you to feel like that either.
Maybe you’re digging yourself out of debt caused by an illness, accident, job loss, regrettable decision, or student loans. Maybe you just make a modest income and wisely want to live within your means. Or maybe you live in a really expensive city where you need to stretch your hard-earned dollars as far as you can. Regardless of why you’re here with me, I want you to feel empowered and inspired by my blog, not defeated! We’re in this together! 🙂 I take a Pennywise approach to living every day, and I’ve learned lots of lessons along the way that I want to share with you. That’s why I’m here.
So here we go! Have a cruise around the site, get inspired, and start living the fabulous Pinterest-worthy yet thrifty lifestyle you deserve. I’d recommend starting with my most popular blog posts for some awesome tips and recipes, and to get a feel for what you can expect here at The Pennywi$e Playbook.
