Hi, I'm Kylie.

I've had a budget system in place and working for me now for 26 years. I have refined it to perfection as I've had to live with various income situations. From a single income, to sharing income as a couple then having 3 kids surviving on only my partners income then back to two after 5 years. Following next was a divorce; single with 3 kids and a mortgage to pay by myself. I think I've done it across all boards trialing every way, along the way  ...and survived quite well with many overseas holidays taken ;)   


After years of trial and error and learning what to cover, I have designed a budget that is super simple. It covers ALL expenses, for ALL incomes and I want to shout it to the world, it's so easy!


I'm very transparent about how I manage my money by sharing real amounts that I earn, owe, have paid off and living costs throughout my articles. I am currently studying financial counselling to further assist people with their finances within my services. 


Come on a journey to increased wealth the old fashioned way, safely in order.
