CAT PAGOAGA

FOUNDER OF THRIFTY LITTLES

 

Cat started Thrifty Littles in 2013 after the birth of her first child. After making the decision to leave her job to become a stay-at-home mom she had to drastically cut back on spending. During this time, Cat really came to appreciate a good deal. That combined with her love of children’s clothing and design was the start of Thrifty Littles. Five years in and she is happy to be on this journey, helping the modern parent live life on a budget.

When Cat is not hunting down deals or carpooling her three kids around, you can find her on scooter rides with her family, working on her house, or listening to bad (but really oh-so-good) love songs from the 80s and 90s.
