Lara Brown

Hi Everyone

My name is Lara Brown,  I am the creator of Savvy Shopper.  A mother to four children, we have 2 girls and 2 boys, between the ages of 14-2 years of ages.

I was born and bred in Ballito South Africa and lived there til I was 18. I immigrated to Auckland New Zealand where I studied and worked and met my husband.  I lived in New Zealand for 13 years and then we made the decision to move to Brisbane Australia.

I had the idea of starting this blog when we arrived because I noticed there was no directory for Factory Shops in Brisbane.  Life happened and the journey for this blog took longer than anticipated.

I love to do crafts,  organisational things,  Interior design, God and My family. And of course, I love a bargain. I have always been a bargain hunter but my mother is the Queen of bargain hunting.

I really want people to find savvy shopper useful and help them save money. I would love to hear from my readers.
