You may have noticed two new names popping up on this website over the past few weeks. I have been slowly breaking in two incredible VAs (virtual assistants). While most bloggers don’t let you know who works for them I really want mine to be part of our AFrugalChick family. Also if you see things that say “my kids” or “my husband” it might be good to know that I didn’t write them.
Christine Platz is a Chesapeake native who currently resides in Virginia Beach. After graduating from James Madison University with her Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Christine worked for the March of Dimes Foundation and a small marketing agency before settling into her current position as a Marketing Manager at Dominion Enterprises in downtown Norfolk. She is an entrepreneur at heart, as she used to work in the wedding industry part-time as a calligrapher and also recently became a Stella & Dot Stylist.
If you ask anyone about Christine, they would tell you her true passion is writing. From an early age, Christine declared that she would write a best-seller one day (and she affirms that day is coming). In her spare time, she enjoys running, including completing her first half-marathon last March at the Shamrock in Virginia Beach. She also enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends, including her adorable nieces and nephew. She is currently planning her wedding for this May. She enjoys traveling and hopes to one day visit Italy, which combines two of her (other) favorite passions – wine and food.
Christine first learned about afrugalchick.com  from her best friend, Kim, who taught her all about couponing and recommended following the site to stay on top of popular deals and couponing tips. Christine began following Laura’s blog and has redeemed many of her recommended deals from Amazon (her favorite online retailer), as well as Harris Teeter, Walgreens, CVS & more.
She currently lives with her husband-to-be in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
You will see posts from Christine very soon- including some yummy recipes- so be sure to give her some love!
