About Susanne aka The Hillbilly Housewife

My name is Susanne and I am the new owner of I took over the site in October 07 from Maggie, the original Hillbilly Housewife. I am very excited about this site and will do my best to provide you with even more great recipes and information.

Maggie mentioned that quite a few of her visitors and readers have asked about a newsletter of some sort, and I have since been able to add one to the ever growing abundance of frugal information that is and always has been the Hillbilly Housewife website.

If you haven't already done so, take a moment to sing up (free of course) in the upper left-hand corner. The newsletter is published every other week. You can read passed issues in the Frugal Newsletter Archive here.

In case you are wondering... all of Maggie's wonderful recipes are here to stay and you will soon see some new additions to the recipes sections. As always, all this information will stay free. I'm here to help you make the most out of our sometimes very small household budgets. You are welcome to browse through the site and use the recipes and articles. I will also occasionally recommend products and ebooks that I have come across. Yes, those products cost money, but you can be confident that I will only recommend them if I have used them myself and found them worth the money.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the site, or would like to share a recipe with us, email me at
