Melissa Ely is a freelance writer, wife, and mother of two teenage sons and twin tween daughters. She has a passion for shopping, traveling, and hosting extravagant themed parties. Sadly, Melissa also has the paycheck of a Stay-at-Home mom, so finding deals is one of the things she does best. Sharing her voice as a budget-friendly, memory-making, family woman is what inspires Melissa to write. You can find her blog at Decor-eating with Melissa.
