Hi, my name is Lexie and I live in Los Angeles. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2004 with a degree in Business Economics with an emphasis in Accounting. I work in in-house public relations for a comparison shopping website.
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 low budget (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.
In a nutshell, I created this blog to pass along my knowledge for budget living and maintaining a fabulous lifestyle.
