About Me

Hi, I’m Amy.  Just a regular girl fed up with living paycheck to paycheck. I’m tired, I’m busy, and I’ve got big plans for my life. Plans that I can’t achieve in this endless cycle of never having enough.

I’m tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses. But I can’t be some crazy extreme frugalista, either. So where’s the middle ground? Where’s the real money advice for real women?

Are you with me?

I know we don’t know each other, but I want to help you live life better.

Join me and together we’ll use real-life solutions to break free from the paycheck trap we’re living in. Let’s simplify life,  save some money and find a life of financial freedom. 

A little about me…

I’m in my thirties.  Gasp!  (I don’t usually say that out loud!)  I’m not even sure how that happened, but here I am – smack-dab in the middle of my thirties.

After being a single mom for many, many years, I married the man of my dreams in 2014. It was a beautiful day and,amy beardsley, andrew beardsley, wedding aside from the day my daughter was born, it was the best day of my life.

You know that old cliché about marrying your best friend? I never knew how true that could be until I met my husband.

He’s my knight in shining armor. But he came with a lot of debt… and when you add that to what I already had… well… we’ve got quite the financial mess.

There’s never enough time or energy at the end of the day, and never enough money at the end of the month.

How I can help you…

I’m a time-starved wife and mother struggling with trying to make ends meet just like you. I don’t have time to spend baking my own bread or growing and harvesting my own food. And even if I had sewing skills (which I don’t) I don’t have the time to spend darning socks or making my own clothes.

But there are ways for real women to save money and live the good life on a budget.

And that’s my mission: Real Money for Real Women.

Join me for savings solutions, and money managing tips and know-how to break free, once and for all, from the cycle of living paycheck to paycheck.
