I was born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii. I also have a spunky little boy who is growing up way too fast. What inspired me to start this blog was when I had somewhat of a panic attack before I turned 30 years old. We have our own place that comes with an expensive mortgage payment, and after living on our own for over a year, it dawned on me that it was really hard to save money.

I had to make changes fast and I document my journey on this blog.

One huge change that I made was changing the way I look at money. I used to save whatever money I had leftover before receiving a new paycheck. I now save first before I spend anything. It was going well until I had to put my son in preschool due to not having any babysitter available. Preschool expenses took a huge hit to my budget and I was faced with a dilemma of trying to build my savings.

Now my goal is to try and bring in more income.

Will I accomplish that goal? We’ll see.
