About Us

Our story

Hi there! We’re Ross and Rose – the founders of R&R Frugal Living. Our goal with this blog is to inspire people to save money. We’re so happy you’re here!

We live in beautiful SW Florida with our chonky cat, Charlie. While we LOVE it here, the cost of living in our area has skyrocketed over the past 3 years! In February of 2022, we realized that with the rent almost doubling in price and the cost of groceries being so inflated, we were living paycheck to paycheck. And that was without car payments! 

How would we be able to afford repairs if our cars broke down? How would we pay for an emergency? Would we ever be able to buy a house? With all of these financial fears, we knew we had to make some changes, and fast!

So we set out to learn everything we could to help us improve our financial situation. From budgeting to extreme money saving tips – we’ve tried it all.

Fast forward to now – we have money in our savings and an emergency fund of 6 months’ worth of living expenses. We are able to invest 15% of our income, and we have saved half of a down payment for our future home. And we did it all without sacrificing our lifestyle.

On this blog, you’ll find frugal living secrets, money saving tips, tools we are using to reach our financial goals, and so much more. 

So grab a warm (or cold) beverage of choice, and join us on the journey to cultivating financial peace, success, and a frugal life you can enjoy.
