Since this is a place where I share my family’s real life on a budget (including our actual budget, found here), I decided that a new series was in order! Last October, I did a 31 Days series that was really successful and seemed to resonate with y’all.
So, I want to do it again, but this time it’s not just going to be sharing budgeting advice. There will actually be 12 bloggers sharing their best of the best budgeting advice for y’all! I want this to be an amazing series where you get to read some incredible budgeting tips and hopefully learn something new!
Without further ado, here are the contributing bloggers and their blogs:
