Hey there! I’m Amanda!
My goal is to help you live a happier life by becoming debt free, developing a reliable side income and achieving financial freedom.
I also share tips and tricks on how to manage your family and home on a budget. You might love checking out some delicious frugal recipes and/or parenting hacks.
Welcome! I’m so happy that you’re here!
To get started, here’s a little bit about me:
I’m Amanda Ramkissoon, founder and owner of The Frugal Mom Guide.
I wear many hats.
I am a child of God, mom to two littles, oilfield wife and high school Math teacher. I love sharing God’s word, taking care of my little family and changing the world, one student at a time.
I know the stress of drowning in debt, living paycheck to paycheck and having less income than expenses each month. We struggled with unhealthy financial habits for years.
When I realized that I was crying every time I logged in to our online banking portal at the end of the month, I decided that enough was enough.
My husband and I buckled down and worked twice as hard to pay off our debt, and I started this blog as a side hustle to increase our income. We also created a budget that we follow religiously each month, and learned how to spend less and save more.
Our new financial habits helped us achieve things like:
-Paying off debt from a failed brick and mortar business
-Paying off students loans
-Saving an emergency fund
-Saving $24000 in 7 months as a downpayment for our land
-Taking vacations that are paid for in cash
-Currently saving $15000 in 6 months as a contingency fund for our upcoming house building project
-Becoming financially stable
How The Frugal Mom Guide can work for you
You and I are similar. We both love our families and want to find the best ways to take of them. Sometimes, we need to find ways to do this on a budget. If you can get the same product, for half the price, why not, Right?
I love teaching how to create a budget and which budgeting process may work best for you.
I teach how to make money online from home when you’re looking for a reliable side hustle.
I love sharing:
The Frugal Mom Guide can equip you with the right tools and resources to become the boss of your money once and for all!
