About Me - Live Pretty on a Penny

About Me

 Hello and welcome to my world! I'm Erin, a wife, mother to a beautiful son,  and I love to inspire women to take charge and create a home that makes them happy! I'm too lazy to change my décor for every season and only decorate my home with things that me happy.  I believe that you should love where you live and live what you love. On any given day when I am not working, you can find me rummaging through thrift stores, building and painting things, chasing after my toddler, working on our home budget/meal plan, and customizing my builder-grade home--all on a budget that works for my family. I blog to inspire women to create a home environment that they truly love.

You can expect one/two posts a week that focus on our home projects, organizational hacks, some travel, and the overall things going on in my home and life.

When we purchased our home a few years ago, I would have never imagined this journey. My blog is for the everyday person, like me who may work full-time and manage a family, but longs to create a space that her family can thrive in, that looks beautiful and doesn't break the bank.   I want to share my experiences, and hear yours as well!

While you are here, don't forget to take some time and check out some of my past posts. Here are a few of my most popular ones to get you started:
