About Keri Lyn
I’m Keri Lyn Renner and I’m so happy that you are here. For over 14 years I’ve been the gal behind the computer here at She Saved. It’s been quite a ride and I’ve loved every minute. What started out as a way for me to express my passion for sharing great things has turned into a full time job, a wonderful community and an amazing amount of travel and adventure.
She Saved started as a way for me to share. My kids were in diapers and I started this outlet as a way to share our favorite things, best products and family experience. I truly believe that it doesn’t matter who you are or how much money you have, you should always be frugal, smart and informed when it comes to your finances. You work hard for your money. I work hard for mine too.
Invest it intentionally in the things that bring you joy! As the proud owner of a 850 credit score, I take my finances very seriously and while I work hard to get the most return on my dollars, it often surprises people then, when I say work hard and save so that you can spoil yourself with the things and experiences that make you happy! Life is short, get the upgrade!
“ITS NOT JUST ABOUT SAVING MONEY. IT’S ABOUT BEING INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR HARD EARNED DOLLARS. IT’S ABOUT SELECTING QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. IT’S ABOUT SAVING TIME AND A LITTLE SANITY BY FILLING YOUR LIFE WITH THE PEOPLE, THINGS, AND MOMENTS THAT MATTER MOST. IT’S ABOUT CHOOSING TO INVEST IN THE PRODUCTS AND EXPERIENCES THAT RETURN THE HIGHEST REWARDS AND ADD THE MOST GOODNESS TO YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE. FRUGAL LIVING IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN MONEY. IT’S ABOUT LIVING IS A LIFESTYLE THAT HELPS TO MANIFEST JOY, REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAVE.” ~ KERI LYN @SHESAVED
While I think that saving money is a huge piece of the pie when it comes to security and happiness, it’s not always about saving money. It’s also about saving time and sanity by researching your choices as a consumer and selecting and supporting the brands that offer the things you value most for your hard earned dollars. Take the trip. Splurge on the upgrade. Buy the nicer vehicle. Cheap and frugal are two very different things and you’ll find that cutting corners or skimping on quality will back fire in the long run.It’s about quality over quantity. It’s about products that stand up to the test of time. It’s about spending your time and energy on the moments (and people) that matter most.
It’s about making the life choices that best feed your soul and help you to be the very best version of yourself. Unapologetically.
What you should know: I am fiercely brand loyal and I get totally geeked out and excited when it comes to sharing things that I love. You won’t find me sharing things that I don’t love, because what’s the point? Time is precious. Spend it on the things and people that you love. Simple.
As mentioned, I will choose quality over quantity any day of the week. I believe that less is more BUT paying less doesn’t always mean more. When it comes to the products and experiences that you invest in, quite often the upgrade is worth it.
Life is best when you hand pick the people and places and things that you spend it with. My peeps (above, in full 80s gear, below in *argh* Pirate form) are my world. Ride or die. I know that you feel the same way about your peeps. It’s what makes all of this so awesome.
It’s a huge part of the “WHY”.
It’s about SO much more than saving money. It’s about time. Precious time. You work hard for your family. I work hard for mine too. I’m here to help you get the very most out of your precious minutes, memories and money. I’ve spend the last 17 years raising kiddos and figuring out that it all goes by way too fast. There are things worth spending money on, but mostly, there are things worth making time for. I write about those things.
I love my job! I’m a big believer in putting your passions to work, so that’s pretty much what I’ve done here. Frugally minded (it’s in my dna) I truly believe that no matter how much money you have, you need to be smart with your dinero. I love shopping, I love saving and I love finding awesome products and sharing them with all of you. As I already mentioned, you work hard for your money, make it work hard for you. I’m here to help with that. I’m also the proud owner of a 850 credit score. (whoop!whoop!)
About me, Keri Lyn.
I’m an Idaho girl, born and raised. A 50-something proud mama of 2 kiddos that are growing up way too fast. Honestly, my heart can’t keep up. I’m the wife of a country veterinarian who still doesn’t have an email account (for reals) and we live in a 1912 farmhouse that we started remodeling over 15 years ago. Heaven only knows when we’ll finish. Things are never dull in my world but I love it. My family. Country living. And my view. I love the view from here. I share it often on my Instagram page and I would love to have you follow along. As mentioned above, I only share things I love. I keep it real. I’m quirky but always well intended and I try to be diligent in my research, reviews and cautious with the information that I’m sharing.
What brands should know. All of the above PLUS the fact that I am a self-proclaimed “brand loyalist” who is known for her strong and enthusiastic voice when it comes to the products and brands that I love. I have 15+ years’ experience in brand marketing and a huge passion for participating in the connection between brands and consumers which has led me to become a successful consultant to several brands/companies, helping them to connect and build strong affiliate programs and relationships with bloggers. If you have a brand that is share worthy, I’m all ears. If it’s a fit, I’m all about sharing it and would love to help you grow it in the online space. Email me, let’s chat: firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh! I also need to share that I am the proud mama to several rescue pets, including a giant mule named Big Mac. I call him “Big Baby” because he reminds me SO much of Big Baby from Toy Story. He’s beat up and old, but so full of personality. I rescued him and he rescued me right back. You can keep up with the latest Big Mac stories and more over on the She Saved Instagram page!

Be happy. What makes you happy? Meet my Happy. Isn’t he a hunk? He’s also needy, messy, he eats a LOT of groceries and he really likes his breakfast early. (Like before the crack of dawn early!) Let me back up a bit and explain. Several months ago I was feeling anxious and stressed and maybe even a little depressed about so many things, things that were out of my control. You might have experienced similar feelings. I felt like I was having a hard time finding my happy (any happy) among all of the noise and sadness in the world. So what’s a girl to do? I adopted a mule. That whole sentence sounds odd and probably completely crazy to some (it even still sounds completely crazy to me!) but here’s the thing: it’s not really about adopting a mule. It was about finding a place to put my energy, something that brings me joy, finding an outlet that feeds my happy, taking on something that needed me. And boy oh boy did he need me. He was literally bound for Mexico on a slaughter truck. I heard his story, and decided that with all of the things in the world that I couldn’t fix, I actually could fix this. And you know what, he has brought me so much happiness and joy. . . and lots and lots of kisses! What is YOUR happy? I love that I can wear my Be Happy tee to remind myself that this whole happiness thing really is a choice. These (and a ton of other!) awesome inspirational tees from @CentsofStyle are marked 50% off the lowest market price PLUS free shipping, go here for details: https://www.shesaved.com/2017/01/be-happy-my-mule-story.html/ (or click link in profile to get to my post) #BeHappy #Happy #MyStory #Fashion #CentsofStyle
