Hi there from a new Aussie blogger


#1

Hi, I’m Kara from The Flawed Consumer. I am a fairly new blogger, having started my first blog The Flawed Consumer (http://www.theflawedconsumer.com) in May 2017.

When I turned 30 last year, I had a bit of a freak out about our financial situation. My wife and I enjoyed our late 20’s a little bit too much and ended up having a lot of great memories, some debt, and not a lot of savings. Consequently, our net wealth was not in great shape.

As a result, I realised that it was time to get our finances under control. So, we set off on a path of frugal living to reduce our debt and increase our net wealth… And, I decided to start The Flawed Consumer to document our progress and share my learnings with others. Hopefully the things I learn along the way will help at least one other person to avoid the financial mistakes I’ve made.

I really enjoy blogging and the Personal Finance community. It’s been great feel a part of a really positive, ambitious and supportive community.

I look forward to interacting with you all on the Rockstar Finance forums.

Cheers.

Welcome!

My wife turns 30 on Saturday and she’s already hinting at this milestone being a “big one.”

I’m looking forward to checking out your blog and story!

Thanks. I’m from Brisbane. How about you?

Thanks! I’m hoping that the meaning of "flawed consumer " will change entirely for me as I go from being a typical mindless consumer to a mindful, minimal consumer.

It is indeed a “big one” in my opinion. Happy Birthday to her!
