I am a wife, mother to a beautiful 2 year old girl, and founder and writer of this blog, which started in 2009.

I am also the author of two Amazon Best Sellers – Eating Organic on a Budget and Eating Gluten-Free on a Budget.

The goal of Living Richly on a Budget is to find ways to make more money and save what you have and at the same time, be thankful for what you have.

What does Living Richly mean?

If you ask people what it means to be rich, you’ll get different answers. For most, being rich means to have lots of spending money, nice cars, a big house, or to win the lottery.

But some who earn huge paychecks are stressed out, have health issues due their stressful lifestyle, are too busy to enjoy their money, and don’t have much time with their family. Is that really living rich?

To me, living richly means:

  • To be thankful for what I have
  • To spend quality time with family and friends
  • Being there for my daughter as she grows up and reaches each new milestone
  • Not being stressed out with a job I dread
  • To be healthy enough to enjoy life
  • Live a meaningful life that inspires others
  • Help others reach their goal of finding work they love

Yes, money is important because we need money to survive and it makes things easier. But money doesn’t equate happiness.

There are people who have a lot of money and fame yet aren’t very happy. My goal is to find that sweet spot where I earn enough to cover expenses and have money left over to save for the future, all while doing work that I’m passionate about!

One of my many dreams is to travel more. I would love to visit London, Paris, Japan, and revisit Hong Kong and The Big Island of Hawaii.

Thank you for supporting me and reading this far. I really appreciate YOU as this blog would be nothing without you!

    A couple of Facebook friends are fans of this site, and I love it! I married a woman who never had a debt and whose credit cards were paid off every month. I’m sure it wasn’t easy for her to straighten me out (and I still sneak in trips to Starbucks way too often,) but I definitely sleep better at night now because of the changes to my financial habits she made.

    Keep up the great work! I’ve got the rss feed on the first page of myYahoo! and enjoy every update.
