Image: Catherine of Frugal-Freebies.comCatherine McDiarmid-Watt, the sole owner of Frugal Freebies, is located in Southern Ontario, Canada.

She has been a work-at-home mom since 1978, when she designed a soft baby carrier, calling it Cuddle Carrier, which was voted best baby carrier by the Canadian Consumer Magazine.

In 1982, Catherine expanded her product line to a whole catalogue of baby products, which she called Born to Love.

Catherine came online in the early days of the Internet of the 1990s, creating one of the first baby product websites - BorntoLove.com - which was featured in the Fortune Magazine as an early adopter of the World Wide Web.

Catherine started up her Frugal-Freebies.com blog in 2008, and currently has over 91,000 Facebook fans!

Catherine is mom to three adult sons, one grandson, and two little rescue dogs - Dexter and Denny.

She can be reached at Catherine (AT) frugal-freebies.com - or - Catherine (AT) borntolove.com.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.

    I was interested in knowing if you accept permanently free books or just books in the Amazon KDP program?

  2. Yes, we do accept Permafree books! If always free, simply write "Permafree" where it asks for a start date.

    My book is always free with Kindle unlimited membership and 2.99 without, does it qualify for you site?

  4. Sorry, we are looking for books that are free without restrictions. Since not all of our readers have the Kindle membership, your book would not be free for them.

    Do you accept books in the LGBT and LGBT Romance genres?

  6. Yes I do accept books in the LGBT and LGBT Romance genres.

  8. sorry, you are not dim - we have discontinued that program.
