Hello – and welcome! I’m Sara Tetreault – the creator of Go Gingham. I’m so glad you’re here.
This is where I share our journey about living on less – fewer of the earth’s resources and less money. This isn’t a coupon-clipping, shop-to-save type of site. This is a living well on less site. “Good for you, good for the environment, and good for the pocketbook” is how I like to explain it. It’s our lifestyle and how we live – and try to every day. It’s the sweet spot where green, healthy, and frugal living come together.
Wondering what the deal is with the gingham? Gingham fabric is my favorite – it’s fresh, cheerful, and a little old-fashioned. It always makes me smile. Here’s what you’ll find here….
- home and garden DIY projects
- decorating and entertaining
- lifestyle – how to live well on less
- real food recipes and meal planning
- home organization, homemaking, and simplifying life
- traveling the world – home swapping and camping!
- budgeting and money saving tips
My experience is in living this way as a wife, mother, and homemaker. My professional background? I worked for Polo/Ralph Lauren for nine years. I love and appreciate good quality, impeccable taste, and beautiful styling.
About me personally….
For the last 25-years, I’ve been married to my college sweetheart. He is the frugal mastermind! He helps me with the editing around here and sometimes writes. We’ve got two kids who are teenagers. We live in the city and have a large garden – where we grow lots of vegetables and keep chickens.
Our family loves to travel and by home swapping, we’re traveling the world and staying for free! We’ve done 12 home exchanges in 10-years. Home swapping is the best way to travel.
