Welcome to my site the Encouraging Budgeter. I started my first blog A Day in Candiland about 8 years ago as a journal. Over the years it really turned into much more.
In January of 2019, I decided to create a new blog to help others who might be in the same situation my husband and I found ourselves in.
As we were getting closer to retirement age, we realized our savings and retirement were not what they should be. After my Father died, I really struggled with what our future would be, seeing they didn’t have a plan B. I knew we had to make a drastic change.
I also truly wanted to share with others our experience and offer encouragement to those that may find themselves thinking they had plenty of time to save for the future.
I believe as good stewards we should be saving and planning for our future years. We still want to enjoy life and plan for what is to come.
My goal is to share and encourage you my reader, through setting up a budget, create separate savings accounts, paying off your debt and mortgage and then living your dream.
Through weekly videos, challenges, and courses I provide, I am confident that you will find the tools and accountability you need in your finances.
Here are some of my key articles:
