About me

Gender Female
Occupation Homemaker/Mom
Location Palmer, Alaska, United States
Introduction My name is Erika. I'm a wife and a mother to two wonderful kids. Financially we are a family that is barely getting by, but I'm determined that just because we are broke, that doesn't mean that life has to feel like a terrible burden. So, I started blogging about ways we save money, recipes, DIY projects and other things that enter into my day to day life. I figure if people read my story that perhaps they can find inspiration to live their lives more fully, even if they don't have physical money to do it.
Interests Cooking/baking, reading, social history (especially during WWI and WWII), frugality, Vintage Tupperware and other vintage items, DIY.
Favorite Movies The Whole Wide World, Das Boot, Anything MST3K (seriously), Rifftrax (especially the Shorts collections), Phantasm series, others. I also love the PBS series "The 1940's House".
Favorite Music Personal favorite singer is Frank Sinatra right now, followed by such greats as Hoagy Carmichael, Dean Martin, etc. I also like Rob Thomas and a couple other more "modern" bands, and finish off my musical tastes with classical music.
Favorite Books Alton Brown (Good Eats is probably my favorite TV show of all time...yeesss I am a nerd). Any books on cooking or baking that took place during the days of rationing. Sewing books. Cookbooks period.
