About Amber AKA Thrifty Mom

Meet the face behind Thrifty Mom’s Reviews and More!

My name is Amber Trievel.  I am a 26 year old stay at home mom from Richmond, VA. Of course many know that “Virginia is for lovers” and I have found this to be very true in my case! I married my soul mate on June 13, 2008. (yes, we had a ‘Friday the 13th wedding’)! Together we have one son, born March 17, 2011. I also have a 10 year old step son that I love just as if he were my own. All kids have their moments, but I really do think mine are the best ever! Yes, I know.. all good mom’s believe that! Why should I be any different?! =]

I am a big advocate for ‘bully breeds’. I have found pit bulls to be some of the most loyal, protective,  best friends I could ever ask for when they are raised correctly. Until recently, I had two beautiful furbabies. Unfortunately we lost our 11 year old to kidney failure this October. It was the hardest thing we have ever went through as she was here even before both kids. But, she is our guardian angel now. We hope to adopt another in the future, but for now Shadow is our pack leader. And as you can see, he is a sweetheart and just loves to please! Who couldn’t like that smiling face?

I couldn’t ask for a better family. We have been through many trying times that only bring us out on top and better then we were before. Our dream goal is to one day be able to afford to take a family vacation to somewhere fun, even if it is just a weekend at a local attraction that we haven’t had the chance to visit!

Together, we love to just have fun and live life to the fullest. We love to work together to review family friendly items, pet products, or any product or service that could be a good fit for our family. And of course since we all work to review items, you can look for more great photos of my whole family in future posts! If you are interested in having us work with your company or brand, make sure to check out my media kit. You can contact me through my contact tab above or by emailing amber@thriftymom613.com I would love to hear from you!
