About Me

I’m Jodie, a Mum and avid money saver. I started my money saving journey when I was pregnant and realised maternity pay wouldn’t support my current lifestyle. Since I started living more frugally, I’ve managed to pay off debt and even buy my first house! I have a 2 year old son and 9 year old stepson and my mission is to enjoy family life together without breaking the bank.

Tightwad Mama is all about sharing my personal experiences of parenting, money saving and earning extra cash. My aim is to help others make the most of family life on a budget. I am always looking for new ways to save and make money, and to entertain the kids without spending a fortune. I have a firm belief that entertaining your children doesn’t need to be expensive, and regularly share ideas for frugal crafts and activities.

Aswell as Tightwad Mama, I also write original content for The Motherload and I’m part of the UK Money Blogger community. I am happy to work with other bloggers and brands, and review products on my site.
