About Tasia

Untitled design (6)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I’m Tasia and  I started this site in August 2014. We have been on quite the financial journey and our financial freedom is so refreshing. When I was pregnant with our first baby I got a call that my position was eliminated while on maternity leave. I was offered a lower paying job with a higher workload for a position I truly disliked. Our finances said we could not afford to have me stay home. We prayed and decided to give it a try. It was not easy.  Yet we did it. I even got a part time job during my second pregnancy to pay off debt. In two years we paid off all our debt except for our mortgage. Just in the last 8 months we were on a spending freeze. A very serious one indeed. Our goal was to live without so we didn’t have to touch our savings account while we paid 2 mortgages and utility bills. I cracked down on meal planning and feeding my family for less. 

We got in control of our finances and are really enjoying our best life on a budget.

I hope this site inspires you to live your best life on a budget.
