I started my blog in the Summer of 2018 after being inspired by many other personal finance blogs and stories being started on Instagram. I have always been intrigued by money – making it, spending it, and keeping it. However, as an adult, I found myself in credit card debt, car loan debt and student loan debt to the tune of $100,000. When I was single, it didn’t seem like a big deal, it was normal because everyone had debt, but as a wife and mother, I knew the cycle of debt had to end because I wanted a better future for myself and my family.
Debt robs you of your income, time, and future dreams if you don’t kill it first. So I created sugarandmoney.com to talk about living a sweet life while having sweet finances. Ultimately to discuss enjoying life while also paying off debt. I believe both are possible because we only have one life and there are so many things that we can take advantage of which are low cost and fun while paying off debt. A few things that come to mind are day trips to the beach, mountains or even a local state park, or a picnic in your backyard – just make it fun and interesting! Investing in a membership at your local zoo and taking advantage of it whenever possible and enjoying free events in your town are also great activities.
At the end of day, everything doesn’t have to be Instagram worthy or expensive for it to be fun, it just needs to bring joy to you and your love ones.
