Hey there! I’m Lindsay. There’s a lot I could say about myself: I used to race sled dogs, I consider Alaska my home (even though I’m originally from Michigan and I’m living in Colorado now), and one of my biggest pet peeves is when I get tiny rocks and bits of sand in my shoes.
I graduated with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in wildlife biology and conservation from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2014. Since then, I’ve followed my husband, Zach, across the continent to Fort Collins, CO, so that he can study construction management at Colorado State University.
Things didn’t go as planned. We had no money management skills, no savings, and we left Alaska with an unsold house. Due to a shortage of jobs, I haven’t even been able to start my career in the wildlife field, or even find a job that pays all the bills. Things hadn’t been looking very good, until I decided to make some big changes in our financial life.
I started this blog as a way to show others what I’m doing to cope financially with our current position. Our financial picture still isn’t the greatest, but we’re working on it. Stay tuned – maybe someday we won’t be in debt up to our eyeballs!
