Hi! I’m Tshanina, an entrepreneur and the blogger behind Thrifty T’s Treasures. My mission on the pages of this blog is to help you live an abundant life.

Here’s little about me and my blogging journey:

When I first started this thing called blogging in 2010 (wow, that’s feels like a long time ago) my passion was to share my grocery store deals with friends and family so that they too could save money on their grocery budget. Over time that passion changed and the Lord revealed to me that I had more to offer to the world than just sharing deals.

My passion for deals turned into a passion to help others live an abundant life, with a focus on healthy living! (It’s safe to say I’m not who I was when I started writing here.)

Since I started my health journey in 2014 I’ve learned (and am proof) that our health can be transformed when we make one simple change at a time! (Yes, it’s that simple!)

Who Is Tshanina


My name is Tshanina (the T is silent), but a lot of my friends call me Thrifty T or T.

I am a passionate Christ-follower and seek to daily live my life to glorify Him.

I believe that no matter what craziness life throws your way, you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

When I’m not blogging, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, listening to audiobooks, or watching a classic, girly chick flick. I love to laugh and truly enjoy the simple things of life.

Tshanina’s Storypetersons

This journey of life has led me through valleys of heartache, betrayal, divorce, and depression. But I’m happy to report that the peaks have far outweighed the valleys. My heart has healed, my hope has been renewed, I’ve found love that I never dreamed possible and I’m learning to live an abundant life. And guess what…you can too!

I would have never chosen the difficult days I’ve walked through but they’ve made me into the person that I am today!

Here on the pages of this blog I’m candid about real life and share my treasures (what I learn) along the way. I’ve shared about the pain of divorce from my first marriage, my constant battle with insecurity and how the Lord showed His redeeming love by bringing me a wonderful husband when I least expected it.

Never planning on having children, you can imagine my shock when I received the news of my surprise pregnancy and our son, Dalton! My life has been full of ups and downs but one thing is certain – the Lord’s been with me through it all!
