Hey! We’re Alex and Caitlynn, two BFFs who have been creating projects, trying new recipes, and sharing deals for years. Fueled by craftiness, cheapness, and a bit of craziness, our apartments are littered with thrifted goodies, DIY projects, and cooking and art supplies. Sometimes our projects are left forever unfinished, sometimes we end up eating the batter before the cake makes it into the oven, and sometimes we hem our upcycled thrift store skirts a bit too short… but despite these occasional flubs, we are full of unique ideas, delicious homemade recipes, and first-hand knowledge about thriving on a shoestring budget.
After years of talking about starting a blog together, we started to get serious. We brainstormed themes, post ideas, and looked into hosting providers. With weddings, holidays, full-time jobs, and grad school, the brainstorming fell by the wayside. However, as the spring of 2014 approached with more changes than ever on the horizon for both of us, we decided it was now or never. Finally, after years of daydreaming, Thrifty Below was born! We come equipped with bushels of new ideas and inspiring past-projects to share with readers, so be sure to follow along and subscribe!
Since launching ThriftyBelow in April 2014, we’ve have been earning new readers, growing our social media following, practicing photography, and sharing all sorts of great thrifty crafts and recipes!
