I reflect on my own money journey that has been moulded from such a young age by my family’s values. Our money mindset was built on what made us truly happy as a family – memorable EXPERIENCES!

So, I give you my top 5 tips to manage your monthly expenses (relatively painlessly) in order to live now and enjoy the future. You will thank me later!
