I love personal finance. “Same!” you’re thinking, right? Maybe, maybe not. But that’s what I want to help you with. I’ll share my money saving tricks, budgeting tips, and saving suggestions so before you know it you are confidently on the path to your financial goals. A nip of your spending in one area here, tuck some savings away for later there, and watch your financial knowledge grow. Because to have that beautiful life you’ve always dreamed of, it doesn’t take a lot of money, it just takes a little know-how. Follow along with me, the Self Taught Spender, and I’ll share what I’ve learned.

Right now I hop between Washington D.C. where I work and New Jersey where I grew up. I’ve had so much fun exploring D.C. the past four years, there’s still so much I want to do and see. When I’m not in front of a spreadsheet I like to explore the city, shop flea markets, escape to the country, pick wildflowers, and bake something yummy in the kitchen. It’s the little things that make life so beautiful. Follow my journey as you read on and discover more on Instagram.
