I’m Jenny and I’m passionate about anything and everything related to frugal living. Things like personal finance, debt-repayment and stretching a dollar are my jam. Here on TTBH you’ll find my own experiences with frugal living and parenting, personal finance tips and debt-repayment strategies to help you get a hold of your personal finances and stay out of debt long-term.
I’m a mid 30’s momma of 1. My journey to parenthood was far from easy. If you want to read some backstory about my struggles with infertility, repeat pregnancy loss and coping with a high-risk bed rest pregnancy this post sums it up quite well: Our Story Of Loss, Hope and Happiness is a great place start.
I live in a small semi-rural city on the outer limits of the Quebec New York State border. I live here with my husband Mer, my daughter Margsy and three four legged fur babies. We’re recent converts to a less urban lifestyle having moved to the “country” after living our entire lives in the beautiful city of Montreal.
I’m currently a stay at home mom but in a previous life I was a high school teacher turned university professor. My academic interests include improving classroom management skills, inclusivity and learning through play.

About This Tiny Blue House
This Tiny Blue House was created on a whim in November 2016. At the time I had a desire to share my many thoughts about slow, simple living and frugality. This blog has changed a little since then but my main focus and goal remains discussing frugal living and parenting.
TTBH was monetized in January 2017 which means that I’m actively making income from this space. If you’re interested in working with me please feel free to head over to my collaboration page to get more information.
Let’s get social
I can be reached on various social media. I love chatting, interacting and sharing ideas in a constructive way. Feel free to follow me, get in touch or just say stop by to say hello!
