Hello – and welcome! I’m Sara Tetreault – the creator of Go Gingham. I’m so glad you’re here.

Meet Sara...Creator of Go Gingham {Styishly Frugal Living}

Here’s where I share about cooking at home, keeping a home, growing vegetables in a small city garden, and our home swapping adventures. It’s a journey about living on less – fewer of the earth’s resources and less money. We’re trying to live well on less. “Good for you, good for the environment, and good for the pocketbook” is how I like to explain it. 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 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.
