About me





Hi and welcome to A Journey to a Lifetime. I am Carol, a budgeting, frugal mum of three (6, 2 and 1 year old).

This is my little spot of the world where I can write about living simply as a family on a budget. I do not, nor will I ever keep up with the Jone’s; but I do want to enjoy a good life while living on a small budget. 

We started to budget after we made the huge decision for my husband to go to University and not long after we found out I was pregnant with baby number two. Since then we have had baby number three and I have quit my corporate job to become a stay-at-home-mum. 

My goal is to help other families to budget their money in a way that helps them feel financially free. What do I mean? I mean yes I would love to help with tips to become debt free, yes I would like you to feel financially stable both for now (an emergency fund) and for the future (pension) but I want you to feel free by truly loving and enjoying your life while doing it. 

I am so glad you have found A Journey to a Lifetime and I hope to see you again soon.
