How this all got started...
I was never someone who needed to create a budget. I never spent outside my means but didn't track how much I was spending or saving either. Only after my partner and I lived together did I realize not just the importance of budgeting but calculating our shared budget. Splitting expenses like rent, groceries or trips became a nightmare!
You had to pay for an online budgeting tool or sell your data for any free ones. Finding a tool for myself was a headache enough let alone finding something for a couple. From there, I was able to get a good look on where my spending went and was appalled by expenses I thought were $50 a month were really $100s! My coffee addiction and mindless Sephora binges added up. It was then that I decided to take control of my budget and cut down on expenses I didn't need. I planned my savings, put it into investments and fast forward less than 2 years later my partner and I were able to purchase a house.
I'd love to inspire even one person and help take you on a journey that's 1 step closer to your financial goals and the best part is it's free!
