My husband and I met in 2005 in Jacksonville, Florida and married a year and half later in June 2006. Shortly after, we moved to San Diego, California. Our next station was Oahu, Hawaii for 2 back to back duty’s. Next we were off to Monterey, California, for two years and now reside in Augusta, Georgia.
I have always been the type to have a job, but being a military spouse I have learned it gets harder and harder to get a job when your resume shows every 2-3 years you move. In Hawaii, it was one of the most difficult places for me to find a job. This is when I started a blog called hawaiishopaholics.com (I have since rebranded Hawaii Shopaholics into TheSpenderella.com) which took off and I became an entrepreneur by teaching others how to live a frugal lifestyle. I published a book called Couponing in Hawaii while living in Hawaii and learning how to stretch our money on one income.
Since moving from Hawaii, I realized how much I miss teaching others and sharing what I learn along the way. Therefore, I am starting this website to share what I have learned about being a military spouse and hope others will follow and join in with sharing their stories.
