Better On a Budget Feature


It is Thursday again and I would like to introduce you to Evelyn Cox of Better on a Budget.

So Evelyn whats your blog about? - My blog is all about living a better life, and creating a better life for those around us on a budget.  I touch on  self-reliant living, frugal living (obviously), affordable cooking/eating, autism info, goal setting, and more.  I also host the occasional giveaway.:-)

What inspires you to blog? - Honestly?  It's just something I enjoy.  My blog is the place where I can delve into subjects that are interesting to me, and it's a great way to meet others who have the same likes, hobbies, etc as me!
What could you do all day everyday and twice on sunday? - Listen to music.   I LOVE music.

What is your story in one paragraph or less. - I'm a mom of two beautiful kids.  An 8-year old daughter and a 4-year old son.  My son has autism, and keeps me pretty busy.  My daughter is a kind tenderhearted thing.  I work hard to be involved in my kids' educations, therapies, etc.  I serve on I-don't-know-how-many committees for both of their schools.  I am striving to live a more self-reliant, natural (green), and emergency-prepared life.  Call me a nerd, but I just love that kind of stuff!!
Do you have a shop? What do you sell? - No shop

Where else can we find you? (twitter name , facebook, Digg, blogfrog etc) - you can find me on twitter at!/betteronabudget and on 
What is your favorite childhood book? - Charlotte's Web and The Summer of the Monkeys.

Whats in your player? - Oh gosh, EVERYTHING.  Right now I'm listening to Disney's Tarzan soundtrack.  Earlier today I was listening to Beyonce'.  I have everything from Michael Jackson to Boyz 2 Men to Bruno Mars to Broadway music to Celtic Woman to teeny-bop type stuff for my kids.

What are your top 3 favorite blogs? foods? - My top 3 favorite foods are potatoes, chicken, and fresh peaches.  
My favorite blogs?  That's a hard one.  I really love 
Creating Better Habits (
Favorite Family Recipes (, and 
Tidbits from the Tremaynes (

What is the most interesting or odd thing about you? - I'm as dull as a spoon...seriously.  How about I share my ultimate dream?  That is to travel the world visiting the impoverished areas and making a difference:  building wells, rebuilding ravaged areas, feeding children, helping at orphanages, teaching, whatever.  Just thinking about it gives me goose bumps.

What is your solution to a bad day? - Too often the solution is eating.  When I'm behaving, the solution can be a hot bubble bath, but it's hard to find time for those.

Thanks again Evelyn! Great tip for over coming a bad day!
