Hi, I’m Jenny!

Welcome to the Home Deconomics website.  I’m thrilled that you’re here!

If you’re looking for inspiration and ideas for thrifty DIY, home decorating, getting organized, and little bit about how to get it all done, you’re in the right place.

Home Deconomics is all about how to get your life in order on a thrift-lover’s budget.  I’m here to help you feel encouraged, supported, and inspired to live your best life.

So Who Am I?

To start, I’m a busy professional woman, with a background in home staging, real estate, and professional organizing, among other things.

OK, to be honest, those were all side jobs.

My main background is in science, and I’m currently a project manager for a group that deploys buoys to study ocean climate.  I actually lived on ships for a couple years.  When I moved back to land, I could not get enough HGTV!

Living on a ship sure makes you appreciate home comforts!

Really, I just love DIY.  And saving money.  And getting stuff done.

I bought a house a few years ago, and the term fixer-upper was an understatement.  One repair person told me that my home had “lived a maintenance free life.”  Finding thrifty ways to fix it up became my passion.

My favorite ways to spend my time are doing projects around the house to create a beautiful and personalized look on a budget.  And I love sharing those projects with my readers.

DIY Tip:  Sanding and refinishing the front door is easier if the dog doesn’t help.

Who Are My Readers?

If you’re here, it means you have a DIY spirit and a can-do attitude.

You’re a fan of home makeover projects, design on a dime, and creative craftiness.

My readers are thrifty and resourceful.  They’re responsible with their money, and always looking for ways to do more with less.  When they want to do something, they’ll find the time, and a way to get it done.

But, there are still days when it just feels like there’s too much to do, and not enough time to get it all done.  That’s OK!

We’re In This Together

In this chaotic life, we’re all looking for ways to create peace and order in the world around us.  It can be a struggle when tasks and “stuff” seem to pile up together, and cause feelings of overwhelm.

Do you ever lie awake at night thinking about all the things you have to do, and wondering how you’re going to get them all done?

You’re not alone.  But you don’t have to stay feeling buried for long.  We’ll help you find a way out of the clutter, and get back to creating the life you want.

Nothing holds us back.  Watch us change the world one DIY project at a time!
