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

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

This is where I share about my adventures in home-cooking, home-making, home-steading, and home-swapping – yes, that’s a lot of home stuff! It’s a lifestyle of sustainability – healthy, fewer of the earth’s resources, and less money. “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 – with style.

Wondering what the deal is with the gingham? Gingham fabric is my favorite – it’s fresh, cheerful, and goes with everything. Plus, it always makes me smile.

Here’s what you’ll find here on Go Gingham….

  • home and garden DIY projects
  • decorating and entertaining
  • lifestyle – how to live the Gingham life
  • real food recipes and meal planning
  • home organization, homemaking, and simplifying life
  • traveling the world – home swapping and camping!
  • sustainability for the wallet – 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….

I’m married to my college sweetheart. He’s basically a saint who puts up with all of my ideas and gingham-ness around our home. We have two teenagers and live in the city. We’ve got a garden and we keep chickens in our backyard.


We love to travel! By home swapping, we’ve traveled lots and stayed for free. We’ve done 12 home exchanges in 10-years. Home swapping is the best way to travel. This was a trip to Spain.
