About Me

I am…

…a natural healer
…connected to the Earth and all that is wild

“I buy my freedom with my frugality.”
~Vicki Robins

Frugally Sustainable is the story of my transition out of a consumer culture into the brave world of sustainability.

It’s about focusing on what’s important and awakening to all that is meaningful.

It’s about…

  • returning to forgotten skills
  • reviving old wisdom
  • creating something amazing

…and finding peace, love, and happiness in the journey.

Frugally Sustainable is also one of the most featured blogs in its niche! It is host to 2-3 informative posts per week that catalogue the why, the how, and the how-to on: frugality, simplicity, natural health, traditional foods nutrition, motivation and inspiration, spirituality, up-cycling, recycling, and designing a life that is interdependent on like-minded others, ecologically responsible and centered around the home.

Hello! My name is Andrea.

I am a nature loving, tree hugging hippie who is deeply passionate about mindful living, organic healing, Earth elements, beautiful home spaces, yoga and meditation.

I am a Registered Nurse turned writer.

I love blogging and creating beauty with things found in nature.

I love to cook, work in my garden, and explore all things sustainable found on this Earth. I also love farmer’s markets, frugal finds, life and seasonal rhythms, hanging my clothes to dry, and the accepted wisdom gleaned from a life free from dualistic thinking.

I am happiest when nurturing my family, my home, my soul, and my garden.

I was raised with a deep respect for the creation surrounding us. In fact, some may consider me an overly enthusiastic outdoorsy-type person and pioneer. I believe the Earth — along with all the elements — contain the entirety of items necessary for our existence and vitality.

I am truly honored to have you here!
