About….

FullSizeRender_23Welcome! I am “thebrokegirl”, aka Mandy. And what makes me a broke girl? Being a single income household, living the best life I can alongside my big grumpy dog obviously, but also because I’m not perfect – I’m broke – I’m a work in progress, which is exactly how I want to stay!

My passion for writing, research, trying new things and wanting to help and inspire others are what inspired me to start this blog. So what makes me an expert on better living? Nothing! I’m just a girl trying.

And what is better living? It’s mindfulness, small changes, simple acts, baby steps to help make your day, your health, your environment, your life just that little much better.

I’m on a lifelong journey to level up my life, and invite you to share that journey alongside me!
