As heard on NH Public Radio, WZID, seen on WMUR Channel 9, and has been featured in Parenting NH, Backyard Poultry, Woman’s Day, and Reader’s Digest for her chicken stories and adventures in thrift.
Author of the ebook: Waste Not, Want Not – How Weighing Discarded Edible Waste for One Month Taught My Family the Value of Food
As a mother of 6 bright and entertaining kids being thrifty has always been a way of life for Wendy. Now with economic times being so tough, she finds herself creating new challenges and sharing what she has learned about saving. Wendy is a firm believer that having fun and creativity does not need to break the bank.
Wendy Thomas is journalist who wrote a long running column for The Nashua Telegraph: Simple Thrift. It described simple, real, honest-to-goodness things you can do to save money, because after awhile even pennies add up.
Wendy has written several newspaper series. One chronicled her decluttering adventure where over the course of a year she and her kids removed over 5,000 pounds of unwanted stuff from their house. Another series described seasonal thrift saving tips and ideas.
She is currently chronicling the experiences she and her family are having while raising backyard chickens as a source of food (eggs only – Wendy refuses to eat anything that has been given a name). What had started off as a challenge to be thrifty has turned out providing endless hours of entertainment, as well as, life lessons on the care and feeding of kids and animals.
As a contributor to the Savvy B2B Marketing blog, Savvy B2B Marketing Wendy also shares her journalistic marketing experiences and advice on writing marketing and advertising copy.
Wendy lives in New Hampshire with her tribe of kids, her husband, 34 egg-laying hens, and her 3 (very yappy) Maltese dogs.
She is available for presentations on thrift, raising backyard chickens, and creative parenting.
