A Thrifty Mum is Jen Walshaw who also writes the popular Mum in the Madhouse blog, about life in the North East of England with her husband (Mad Dad) and two lively sons (Mini and Maxi), who are 7 and 8.
Jen is passionate about crafting and cooking, and can often be found in the kitchen teaching her boys (aged 8 and 7) to make pizza dough, or making home-made gifts for family and friends. When not up to her eyes in Flour or paint, she can be found blogging about family life
Being a mum has taught Jen many life lessons, but one of the main ones is how to be careful with money and live life to the full on a budget due to the wish to be provident and provide for her children.
When she isn’t up to her elbows in flour and paint, Jen is a partner in the MAD Blog Awards, the UK’s leading awards for parent bloggers.
