Hi, I’m Melissa. I am a former Metro Detroit busy mom of a teen and tween who loves helping people find ways to make their lives easier and more fun. Plus look great while they are doing it! We moved to Germany a year ago so I am now an ex-pat mom learning to live in a new country. We travel throughout Europe every chance we get. We are not budget travelers but not super high end luxury travelers either. We try to make the most of our money when traveling but know when it is worth it to splurge as well.
Everyday Savvy is a lifestyle website for busy people who want to make the most of their life every single day. It features real life fashion for women and kids, easy recipes and crafts, travel inspiration and reviews, and tips for living your best life. We all don’t have unlimited time and energy and I try to help you get the most of your life.
One very popular section of the website is our mini capsule wardrobes. These are not meant to replace all the clothing in your closet but can make it so easy for your to look your best each day. We feature these capsule wardrobes for winter, spring, summer and fall. We also include business casual and plus size wardrobes as well.
As a busy mom, I know that getting food on the table can be a challenge. We feature easy and tasty recipes that are perfect for your busy life. I love it when they look great but are easy as well. A few of my favorites include the following.
- Simple and Fresh Fish Taco Recipe
- Carrot Garden Pudding Filled Cupcakes
- Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Tostadas
- Easy Slow Cooker Coke BBQ Babyback Ribs
- Easy Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal – No slow cooker required
Plus there are lots lots more in the recipe section on the website. Be sure to check it out and pin your favorites.

- DIY Hair Tie Tutorial
- DIY Spa Sock Cupcake
- Tea-riffic Teacher cup with free printable

I love the Time to Travel section because that is one of my passions. I love to travel and that is why I save money on other things like groceries so I can go on great trips. I highlight fun travel locations as well as travel savings tips. The site focuses on Family Travel with tweens and teens. We have some articles with United States locations and am currently adding many European travel tips and itineraries.
I am also a recognized local expert on saving money in simple ways. I was a regular on Local 4 WDIV Television and taught Grocery Savings and Meal Planning Classes throughout Metro Detroit. Whether it’s travel, retirement, your children’s education or something else, I love helping people save money for life’s most important items. You can see my recent media appearances here.
