Tips for living a fabulous life on a budget

Hello, my name is… April 1, 2008

img_0664.jpgHello, my name is Lexie and I wanted to kick off my blog by giving you some background on the reason why I started this blog.

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.

    Dear Lexi, This is a very useful blog for all the young people trying to make a go of it in Los Angeles without going into debt, an honorable and noble goal! I will enjoy reading it and pass it on to my children as well! PS You look absolutely gorgeous either on or off a budget, and very articulate as well! You make us all proud.

  4. At long last!
    This is a really great idea. There needs to be a young, stylish and and far hotter version of Suze Orman . . . Lexie you are well on your way.

    Here’s to cheap and chic!

    Dear Lexi,
    Good for you. It will be great to show my teenage granddaughter that even gorgeous 20 somethings buy their bathing suits at Target. I am looking foreward to sharing your new blogs with her. I think your moneysaving ideas are great!
