My name is Emily Matthew, and I am wife to my wonderful husband, Jared. We’ve been married since July 2010 and are thoroughly enjoying our life together!
Both Jared and I grew up in Lancaster County, PA where we eventually met, dated, and tied the knot. After getting married, we moved far away from the beautiful countrysides of PA to the bustling Twin Cities of MN. My hubby is attending seminary in preparation for our future plans in missions.
My number one job is to be a faithful child of God, glorifying Him in all I do. I value my relationship with my Heavenly Father and His incredible gift of salvation most importantly in my life!
My second priority in life is to be a helpmeet to my sweet husband and do everything I can to make our home a haven. I love any projects that involve homemaking, cooking, DIY decorating, organizing solutions, simple living, and frugality!
Another wonderful job that I am very blessed with is Emily’s Piano Studio; I love sharing the gift of music through teaching piano lessons!
Most days, you can find me teaching, cooking/baking, couponing, blogging, or working on a new project. If not, you’ll probably find me hanging out with my hubby, reading through my stack of books, playing the piano, enjoying the outdoors, or brewing a delicious pot of coffee!
About Simply Thrifty Living:
I began my former blog, Day By Day, as a way to keep myself accountable on my couponing adventure as well as a way for our family to keep up with our lives. That blog grew into sharing decorating projects, frugality tips, and my attempts as a new housewife. Thus, Simply Thrifty Living began!
Living on a tight budget on our journey through seminary has allowed me to become creative with decorating our home, finding organizing solutions, menu planning, grocery shopping, “drug store gaming”, and moderate stockpiling. I’m beyond grateful for those opportunities, and I am excited to share them with you through Simply Thrifty Living.
