Debra Muccio is a wife and mother (8-year old daughter) living in the Dallas/Ft Worth area.

Debra traded in high-powered suits and high-heeled shoes for a new role as mommy – crayon enthusiast, storyteller, and kisser of boo-boo’s.

In the summer of 2008, it became clear that the economy was in trouble and families were hurting.  Seeing a need within her own community, Debra set out to educate others about what she had learned of budgeting and cutting grocery costs significantly. She created this successful blog, which was designed to help families around the country.

These days, Debra has expanded the focus of A Frugal Friend to include everything from shopping deals and family travel to social media events.

Thanks so much for being so kind! :-) I am so excited about going to Disney! I plan to just sit back and absorb whatever knowledge I can, lol!

Debra, thank you so much for all that you do to help with budgeting and saving a little, here and there. It all adds up! You have steered me in a direction that will benefit our family and I am addicted.

I would like to subscribe to Frugal Friend but I can not find on your page where to do so. My friends all just rave about the samples they receive in the mail and the coupons via email and I have become very interested, if you could please let me know how to join in on this I would really appreciate it.

Least favorite chore: that would have to be the bathroom as well, considering I have THREE of them!
Most favorite: None come to mind! Just the satisfied feeling of a clean home when it’s all said and done!
