About Me

Cheap Is The *New* Classy is a family and lifestyle blog in which we hope to help you find ways to live a good life for less. We blog about family issues, lifestyle, home and garden, recipes, pop culture, Psychological and Sociological issues, entertainment and life in general.

Welcome to Cheap Is The *New* Classy! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dawn McAlexander and I am a 30ish year old married mom of a teen and we have a seemingly never ending supply of fur babies. I live near Winston-Salem, in rural North Carolina, have a degree in Psychology from Appalachian State University and have worked in Radio for most of my working life. I also love to read, shop at flea markets and go to concerts in my spare time. Although I love country music and classic rock,  I patiently await the return of the hair bands.

I am the owner of Cheap Is The *New* Classy and you are welcome to send any comments, complaints *gasp*, PR requests or advertising questions to me via email at dawn(at}cheapisthenewclassy(dot)com or by the easy contact form {to the left – the green button, or at the bottom of this page}. You can also contact me via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google +.

Amber is a Beauty and Fashion Blogger at Cheap Is The *New* Classy. She loves doing her makeup and hair and subscribes to countless fashion magazines. Her bedroom is an ad for Rue 21, Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister. Amber is in early college and hopes to one day have a career that brings in the big bucks – whatever that may be.

Thank you for stopping by this little piece of cyber space! I hope that you will stick around for a while! If you have any questions or comments, please email me at dawn(at)cheapisthenewclassy(dot)com, use the contact form below or use the contact {green button} to your left. Either method you choose will work. If you would like to contact either Jay or Amber, please use the same methods but put their name in the subject line. Thanks. :)

  3. What a mess that millions are affected by someone’s stupidity for hacking the Go Daddy site! So many of us bloggers rely on the safety and ease of use of the Go Daddy web hosting. This will not deter me from using Go Daddy in the future because even the Pentagon computers have been hacked! I hope we are not down too long:( Time is money !
