Hello there! If you’re new to Organizing Military Mommy then WELCOME! I really think you’ll find this website helpful as I cover many topics ranging from Military life to Thrifty living, parenting, organizing, decorating, and everything else in between. However, in order to ensure that your navigation of this website is enjoyable let me give you some suggestions on where to start:
My name used to be Thrifty Military Mommy, but over time I learned of what I was really passionate about sharing with my readers. When I became a professional organizer, I took the plunge to change my blog name, streamline my posts, and write mainly about designing and organizing.
Nevertheless, being that finances are still near and dear to my heart, I still occasionally write about frugal and thrifty living. Years ago I learned the hard way how to save my money by going through a season of poverty that could’ve ruined myself and my entire family. It’s mainly because of several blogs out there that I learned so fast how to be “a better home economist” as Christal Payne likes to put it over at moneysavingmom.com.
Here are some other posts you may want to take a look at in the “Thrifty” and “Organizing” category I’m sure will help you (Photo Credit).

If you’re a new military spouse then I think you’ll find Military 101 very helpful to you. If you’re a seasoned spouse or even a member of the military then you’ll probably find some things here you could use as well (plus we need your expertise! ;)).
If you haven’t already, then you’re about to find out that there’s more than simply living with a soldier that you need to know and do as a spouse. I didn’t grow up in the military, so when I married my husband I was in for a rude awakening! Here’s just a taste of what I’ve covered so far. Hooah & Oohra!!!

I consider anything having to do with my home and family part of the mommy in Organizing Military Mommy. So here is where you’ll find DIY’s, healthy living, and raising military brats (among other things) as part of this category.
Also, being a mom has been a huge struggle for me. Blogging has been a way to keep myself accountable and help me overcome my failures in parenting. I’ve written about how I’ve managed to overcome my medical nightmare and before and after the anti-candida diet I did. I am not perfect, and I want to reach out to other moms out there and show them through my posts that they are not failures, but normal. I hope that this is encouraging to you.
