Hi there! Welcome to Almost Practical.
So – you want to know what this site is all about.
Well, my name is Neena Nandagopal and I am a former CPA turned professional blogger.
I was bitten by the blogging bug back in 2007 and never looked back.
You probably won't be surprised to find out that I am an incredibly “practical” person.
I am always looking for products and ideas that make life easier.
My life consists of my wonderful husband, my four amazing young adult/teenaged children, my Shih-Tzu fur baby, and my blog.
What I Write About
Thus it follows that every product I try and share revolves around:
- house and home
- recipes and food (teenagers are incredibly hungry people),
- finances (think four college educations and saving for retirement),
- and blogging.
Why “Almost” Practical?
People ask me this a lot.
I wrote the full story behind the name – but I will give you the short version here:
First, completely and totally practical would be kind of boring, don't you think?
Second, I have a creative and somewhat impulsive side that is sometimes at odds with what might be sensible.
Third, on a few occasions that creative/impulsive, “just gotta have it” side comes out ahead.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, I go with practical but there is that one percent when you just have to go with your gut.
So, allow me to extend a warm welcome.
