Meet the Twin Cities Frugal Mom team!
Greetings! I’m Lisa, founder and owner of TwinCitiesFrugalMom.com!
I grew up in Duluth, MN and have lived in the Twin Cities area since 2004. My husband and I both work and do our best to provide for our family and save for the future. We’re like many families – we want to be money-wise but also have fun!
The Twin Cities are so rich in art, music, culture & entertainment, there are so many choices when it comes to retail, and there is no shortage of ways to have fun on your own or with friends and family. But with so many people losing their jobs and homes here (and elsewhere) in recent years, and with prices constantly creeping up, we all have had to find ways to live on less.
So in 2008 I thought, hey, how about creating a site where I can share ideas for how to save money while still enjoying all the metro area has to offer?
I love blogging about frugal living, fun (and free or cheap!) things to do with the kids in the Twin Cities area, deals I find, thrift store shopping, and of course, parenthood!
I am always seeking sponsorships and partnerships to help connect your business or brand with local families. I also enjoy hosting giveaways and writing reviews of products and places other money-wise families would like to learn about!
A few more random things about me:
Over the years I’ve done many local TV segments and speaking engagements.
In addition to owning this blog, I’m a professional musician and composer.
I also co-founded the Twin Cities Kids Club and built and grew the business from January 2015 – August 2017, but am no longer associated with them.
On a personal note, I love anything having to do with the north woods, I carry around more lip balms than I ever need, and oh, I have an incurable weakness for Nutella and mochas!
I invite comments, ideas and feedback so please feel free to contact me!

Meet Kelly – Guest Fitness Blogger for Twin Cities Frugal Mom
I am so excited to be a part of the Twin Cities Frugal Mom community!
I currently live in Woodbury, Minnesota with my family. I have been married for 7 years to my wonderful husband, Caleb. He is a financial advisor, who has taught me so many miracle concepts about managing our family’s income and also why frugal living is the key to achieve many long-term financial goals.
We also have two amazing daughters, Clara (2, who was born on our wedding anniversary) and Presley (4, who was born on our engagement anniversary), who both love reading, art projects, dancing and anything princess related!
Becoming a mother changed my life in many ways. Life was not only got busier and but also more joyful than ever before. Early in my motherhood journey, I began developing a passion to help other mothers and families thrive in living a balanced, healthy, active lifestyle by helping provide resources, ideas and positive encouragement to others.
In late 2017, I decided to make my dreams a reality by launching The Living Fit Blog, which was created to take a deeper look into the real moments that occur within the health and fitness journey and to give people the tools and resources to make their particular health and fitness goals fit into their lifestyle.
Since I have launched my blog, I have learned that everyone has very different health struggles that they are trying to work through, but in the end, most people want to achieve the same goal – feel better and be healthier.
The best advice I can give is that it’s not about how or when you start, it’s just important that you DO start and starting small is actually a key factor into building a healthier and more active lifestyle long-term.
Now that I have joined the Twin Cities Frugal Mom team, I am creating a series of blog posts that include real-life stories, tips for everyday moms, how to get fit on a budget and to explore unfamiliar subjects within the health/fitness world to help you better achieve your goals.
You can also follow along by liking The Living Fit Blog on Facebook (www.facebook.com/thelivingfitblog) or follow me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/kellyturbett_fit to keep up with the latest things in the living fit lifestyle.
