Share Article

Tips and Resources for frugal living are in big demand as consumers struggle with rising food and fuel costs. There is one authority on the web that has a following of thousands. Her popularity is based on a tried and true formula founded on common sense and American ingenuity. She's the Hillbilly Housewife.

Frugal living may be all the rage now given the high cost of fuel and food in America, but for almost 10 years the Hillbilly Housewife has been doling out advice and recipes for "low cost home cooking from scratch" to a growing fan base. Her $45 one-week nutritionally balanced menu plan for a family of 4 is one example of the kind of information that has made the Hillbilly Housewife wildly popular. Today more than 300,000 visitors a month come to the Hillbilly Housewife's home on the internet ( and those numbers are poised to increase given the current need to lower food and energy expenses.

"We're a nation of smart people who have learned through the years how to make the most of what we've got. The Hillbilly Housewife website is a treasure trove of information that puts together common sense and ingenuity to offer grocery shopping, cooking and household management tips that are helping individuals to change habits and save money," explains Susanne Myers the owner of the website Hillbilly Housewife.

What makes the Hillbilly Housewife different from other frugal lifestyle websites are things like the straight forward, plainly written "how to" guides for preparing food from scratch. There's even a guide to finding deals on store bought convenience foods. Convenience foods aren't generally endorsed by Myers but she recognizes that in the real world there will be times when it won't be possible to make a meal from scratch. Rather than eating out and spending even more money, the "Hillbilly Housewife Guide to Store Bought Convenience Foods" fits the bill.

"The US Department of Agriculture's "low-budget" estimate for the cost of food for a family of four is now over $500 per month. For families trying to do more with less, we teach you the best foods to buy on a budget and how to cook them so the family will be well fed and satisfied," explains Myers.
