Who is The Stingy Bitch?
I created this site to help young people like you and me save money whilst still living their best life.
It doesn’t matter what you want to save money for. You might want to save all of your hard earned cash to score yourself a one-way ticket to the other side of the world, or you might want to stash that money away for your dream wedding. Or you might be just like me and want to start slowly building your nest egg to ensure that you can retire comfortably at an early age. In order to hit this money saving goal, I have a plan in place to save as much money as I can and invest it wisely. In this blog, I am going to tell you what that plan involves so that you can smash whatever money saving goal you have set yourself.
The Best Part?
I am never going to judge you or tell you not to spend money. In fact, you SHOULD spend money so that you can keep living your best young life. I know it’s hard to believe that a blog about saving money is going to tell you to spend money. The most important thing that I want you to understand is that it is OK for you to spend money on the things that you want to spend your money on. It really does not matter what the hell anyone else thinks about your spending habits as long as YOU are in control of those spending habits.
Being a Twenty-Something
I’ve done a lot of crazy shit in my twenties, and spent a lot of money doing so, but I wouldn’t change any of that for the world. I’ve backpacked for months around Europe, studied abroad in America, road-tripped around New Zealand and Australia, and travelled throughout Asia. I’ve lived by myself, lived with my parents and lived in share houses. I’ve been on the basic Centrelink youth allowance payments, worked countless hospitality jobs and completed two degrees. According to my Nan, I’ve wasted too much money getting “stupid” tattoos, and a recent quarter life crisis saw me throw a bunch of money away on a brand new moped. The point of all of this is that twenty-somethings like me and you are never going to stop spending money, and why should we? Don’t we want to have fun memories to cherish when we are old and decrepit?
I grew up in Perth, Western Australia and moved to Sydney just over three years ago. Sydney is one of those cities that, although quick to drain my wallet, was even faster at stealing my heart. I grew up fairly comfortably, but in no way was my family rich. I don’t have a trust fund, my parents don’t own a beach house and I have been completely financially independent since my twentieth birthday.
When I’m not out blowing my money, I’m spending forty hours a week working at my first full-time job earning less than $1000 a week after tax. Although I find my career really rewarding, and I’m super proud of what I do, I’ve recently started struggling with the idea that I don’t actually have a creative outlet for those forty hours a week I spend at work. I wanted to start writing as a way to express myself creatively, and I found inspiration from writing about a topic that I know a lot about; saving money.
Despite talking a big game about how much money I spend, I have to admit that I really am good at saving money. Throughout my teens and early twenties, I have been able to consistently save enough money to allow myself the financial freedom to pay for whatever it is that my heart desires, and I want to help twenty-somethings be able to save enough money to experience this financial freedom too. I want to give you an insight into how easy it is to actually save your money if you really want to, and that is what this blog is all about.
