Fresh Homemaking Strategies for Modern Families | Frugal Nesting is a lifestyle mommy blog focused on parenting, budgeting + family living.



Welcome!  My name is Alea and I am the working mama of two goofy boys living in the Pacific Northwest.  This blog is a labor of love documenting the ins and outs of this life we’re all navigating through!  Frugal Nesting is a website for families to find inspiration and solutions to their parenting pain points, budgeting challenges and dreams for their home + family life.


I am a semi-crunchy mom who is passionate about all things parenting related from trying to conceive, through pregnancy, labor & delivery, postpartum and on into full-blown {attachment} parenting.  I am also obsessed with shopping, saving and personal finance.


I love to research a question to find just the right solution and passing that information on to others!  Over the years I have become the “go-to” opinion/recommendation source for my tribe when it comes to just about anything!  I am also a curator of great content.  These things make me happy and I hope they make you happy too!


Birth of a Mommy Blog


This blog began shortly after I turned 35 years old in August of 2014 and we were trying to conceive a second child…we were trying for a girl! [Spoiler alert >> I’m still a boy mom!] This started out as documentation of my journey and has evolved over time.  It’s now a collection of posts and articles relevant to my passion for motherhood, savings, and the pursuit of happiness {which now also includes blogging}! Take a look around and enjoy!  And, if you have time, I’d love it if you would share your story and/or tell me what you’d like to see here!
