Welcome to Almost the Real Thing. I’m a Midwestern mom of two girls, a wife to one best friend, and a self proclaimed wannabe of all things crafty and domestic. I’m new to this full time home life, single income gig, and am making my way through it one craft, diy project and paycheck at a time!
After having been in the workforce for decades, I finally decided to make a change. To be honest, It hasn’t been an easy transition. Frugality is the new buzzword around our house. But what IS easy is the time I get to spend with my hubby and two girls that I didn’t have before. Having more time to cook quality meals, do house projects and just plain getting organized is priceless, and I’d love share with all of you what I’m learning along the way.
So join in with me on this new life journey! I’d love the company, and can’t wait to see what you all have to share with me as well!
