Meet the STS Clan
Save to Splurge is a lifestyle blog about money and the finer things written by a (no-longer-practicing) CPA. I’m Jen and I live in Florida with my husband and furbaby. We are expecting a baby boy in May! I am a CPA by trade and a greeting card designer and blogger by passion. I have always been fairly money-conscious (with the occasional splurge!), while Mr. STS was the big-spender. Now that we are starting a family together, we know we have to buckle down and be smarter with our money. I am a big proponent of saving for retirement. At the same time I believe that as long as our various nest eggs are being well-funded, we should be able to “splurge” on other areas of our life!
What will you find on STS?
I am writing this blog to hold myself accountable for saving generously, splurging responsibly, and appreciating the finer things in life. I write about personal finance and living with intention.
Money shouldn’t be a scary thing. Actually, it can be pretty exhilarating! I hope that my accounting background and passion for financial freedom will inspire you to take control of your finances, too!
We really like the bottom two-thirds of our bodies.
What will you not find on STS?
I am not an extreme couponer and I don’t write about drastic ways to cut spending. I am a fan of budgeting and I believe in a happy and healthy balance.
I am so excited that you are here! I have listed a few of my most popular posts below. I would love for you to check them out and get a feel for what STS is all about!
