It’s no greatly guarded secret that my bank balance can easily be trumped by many a child’s piggy bank yet despite this potentially depressing predicament, I find myself happier than I have ever been; on top of the world… or on the bottom of the world depending on which country you are reading this in.
To many people, the word ‘budget’ is a dreaded word, synonymous with limitation and conjures up the idea of settling for less – for something sub-standard. I happen to strongly disagree with this notion. Whether it be a culinary feast, a world trip, a holiday, a wedding or just your day-to-day; with an open mind, a healthy work-ethic and a lot of imagination, life on a budget can be the ultimate freedom.
As I begin a yet another new chapter in my life, I have chosen to write this blog to share the unusual, the unexpected and the every-day things that make my life rich, despite the big, ugly zero in my bank account. I hope to inspire others to chase their dreams and achieve their own slice of true, meaningful happiness – what ever their budget.
