I’ve been interested in budgeting and saving for as long as I can remember. I used to be bad with money. I mean really bad. Now, I’m definitely getting better.

I also have a love of creating printables. I’m good at it and I love being helpful.

Around March 15th, 2019 I purchased my Personal Finance Blog. I’ll keep you updated on the status of that here. Wherever you see income listed, that is total income for the blog from all sources including ad revenue, affiliate programs, product sales, etc.
