Welcome to Large Famly Frugal Living

Hi! I’m Jeniffer and I’m glad you’re here! Take a few moments to find out more about me, Large Family Frugal Living, and what you can expect to find in these pages.

A Little About Jeniffer

I’m a 30-something Christian, married to my best friend, Ray, and we live in Southern Indiana where we homeschool our beautiful children. This year our children are 21, 18, 9, 8, 6, and 4. This year rounds out a decade of homeschooling for us. What??? Our oldest graduated from our homeschool, and our next graduate starts her senior year here soon.

I rely on Jesus and coffee to get me through our busy days.

A few random things about me:

  • Reading aloud to my children is my favorite “school” activity.
  • My birthstone is a coffee bean.
  • I’m a budding gardener.
  • I love books- we have them in every room of the house.
  • When I was in third grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. My wish came true ;).
  • Before homeschooling, I earned a medical degree. I’ve never used it.

Homemaking is one of those things that we women must do, so we might as well enjoy it, right? Of course, getting the kids involved helps too. 🙂

  1. Clicked across your site I love it, my question is you said you buy your meats in bulk, where do you get your meats. We just moved to a new area and I am still exploring the stores. Oh I am a mom of 3 handsome boys (12,6,3) and another on the way in May. I do home school and I will probably be getting your meal planner package, (love how you have it set up).
