Back in 2011, Jody Allen was made redundant whilst on maternity leave with her first baby, and pregnant with her second. The thought of living on just one income was concerning. To keep their home, Jody and husband Brendan crunched the numbers and found they had a mere $50 a week to spend on groceries. This terrifying feeling lead to Jody having to re-think how they ate, shopped, what to cook and even resorted to making and using her own cleaning products from household products. All Jody wanted to do it share her tips and hints on living simple, however this eventually led to the major success of Stay at Home Mum.
Jody has been recognised and nominated for various awards like Telstra Business Woman of the Year, EY Entrepreneur of the Year. Then winning Gympie Women in Business Awards 2013 - Best NEW Business, Gympie Women in Business Awards 2013 - Entrepreneur/ Professional of Excellence, Bendigo Bank Gympie Chamber of Commerce Awards 2013 - Business of the Year and The Largest: Australian Parenting / Mother Social Media Following – Social Bakers, 2015;.
