My 411My name is Jenny and I'm on the journey towards a simpler life, usually facilitated by 20 apps on my smartphone that all do the same thing, and e-mail reminders from four different calendars. It's a journey. I bake my own bread, make my own pasta and tortillas, and I like slow food grown from my garden and picked fresh. I've been on a frugal path for a long time, but with my husband's recent job loss we decided it was time to start keeping track of what we've done and figure out how to use our resources more effectively. Hopefully our experience can encourage others on the same road.
