Hey! Thanks for stopping by Smart Budget Moves! I’m Leslie Matthews, founder of this blog. If you are into saving money like myself, or you are looking to get starting improving your finances, you are in the right place because I love to write and I’ve got a whole lot of ideas to share on the topic.
On Smart Budges Moves you will find articles on just about anything to do with personal finance – especially, of course, budgeting and saving. Plus I am into a lot of other things these days, so you may find the occasional random post on parenting, entrepreneurship, productivity, health & wellness, and more.
My writings are all about my experiences and what I’ve discovered over the years, past and present, to work best for me. If you can relate, let’s connect!
Who Am I?
I am a freelance writer and lifestyle blogger who just recently escaped the 9-5. 🙂 As a single mom, my little boy keeps me very active. At the moment, basketball mom could be added to my list of many titles as well as expert snuggler. I haven’t always been any of these things though. I grew up in Akron, OH (no, I don’t personally know Lebron James, but I walked past him once 🙂 ) with a strong interest in math and science very early on, so a career in that field was a given. However, when it came time to graduate from college and get a real job, I wasn’t quite ready for the cube farm… so I joined the Navy and moved to Japan! I love to travel and try new things, food especially. Joining the Navy was probably the second best thing I could have done to set myself up financially as a young college graduate (graduating with no debt was number 1), and I’ve tried to make smart money moves like that ever since.
Where Else to Find Me
Here of course! But also, you can find me at Everything Girls Love (Everythinggl.com) in the Modern Domestic section where I write bi-weekly on the topics of culture and lifestyle. On the opposite weeks, I also write bi-weekly for MyGirlSquad.com. And of course, you can catch me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If none of that is direct enough you can contact me in the comment form below. I’ll receive an email that you stopped by. 🙂
