I recently downgraded from a one bedroom apartment to a studio apartment to get myself on a 5 year plan to buy a condo. After moving, I began trying to live “below my means” to save more money. I began applying my creativity to living on a budget and realized that it was kinda fun. I found myself responding to compliments on my inexpensive (yet well thought out) outfits, home design, etc. by announcing how much everything cost.
The ironic part is that I enjoy things that are typically expensive – food, wine, fashion, home design, going out with friends. But I found that when I spent some time researching and planning my purchases, I could have everything I wanted and not break my budget. I created this blog to pass along this newly found enlightenment and provide some low budget ways to live a fabulous LA life.
