Valerie has written articles, blog posts and white papers giving advice on the following home living topics: saving money, installing plumbing, decorating a home, landscaping, pool service, roof repair and green construction. She wrote an ebook on frugal living that is currently available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
She has been a homeowner on a budget for more than 20 years, so her writing in this industry is shaped by personal experience. Her advice tends to be pragmatic rather than idealistic. For instance, if saving money is the point of the article, she advocates green living tips only when they do save money.
She also knows how to have a sense of humor about this topic. As any homeowner who lived through an extensive remodel knows, there are times when all you can do is laugh.
