My name is Ashleigh but I’m better known as @the_thrifty_millennial. I’m a 29 year old (soon to be 30) teacher and I live in the Top End with my husband and our fur baby. I love budgeting, saving, investing and all things finance related. I’ve always had a pretty good understanding of how to manage my money (thanks mum and dad!) but a couple of years ago I found the #debtfreecommunity on insta, heard about FIRE and I was hooked! I am investing with a long term outlook focusing on building a portfolio around ETFs and LICs (and one investment property) and hubby and I working towards achieving FIRE before my 40th birthday.

Hey, I’m Kimberley a 29 year old mum of 3 kids. Living on a strict budget I was always on the hunt for quick sale items/reduced to clear deals. I realised I wasn’t the only one doing this and that’s how markdown addicts Australia was born. I now spend a large part of my day deal searching for others to help them stretch their budget further. Helping others sort out Christmas presents, birthdays presents and celebrations for the lowest possible prices.
I’m Tash. I study OT, work in the disability industry and am so passionate about financial literacy and empowering others to take control of their financial situation while still enjoying life. I believe in reducing the stigma around money convos and do that through my IG and tiktok. When I’m not working I love anything ocean related and you can probably find me at the wake
Hey, I’m Maddie! I’m 23 years old and live on the sunny Gold Coast with my 2 dogs. I love all things to do with personal finance, so I started my Instagram @moneywithmaddie to empower others with the knowledge to grow wealth and learn more about this space. I love breaking down the stigma that surrounds money conversations, so we can all learn from each other! I strongly believe in being frugal, not cheap, and finding the best deals in general areas of life (groceries, fuel, utilities, shopping) so I can spend more on doing what I love.
Hello everyone, My name is Nicholas G. Muscat and I am from Western Sydney, NSW.I started one of the first Australian focused finance YouTube channels in 2017.With a big passion for finance and psychology and a background in the STEM fields going into the finance space made a lot of sense. When I am not researching financial or psychological topics I am often going for a run, at the gym, gaming, playing music or volunteering.

I’m Stacie, aka @budget_save_spend on Instagram! I have a significant visual impairment but I don’t let that stop me. I’m addicted to op shopping, bargain hunting and finding creative ways of saving money. I live in a household of up to 4 humans and I enjoy walking my 2 big dogs. I love helping people with saving money and reducing financial pressures. My Instagram is about saving money, hustling and having fun while doing it. I have a background in social science and previously worked for a number of years as a community services officer for a community organisation where I would assist people with matters such as food hampers and getting bill assistance. I love helping people to get a hand up with their bills and finances and to remind people that it’s ok to ask for help.
Hi! I’m Amanda, aka Bargain Boss. I love to shop for bargains, side hustle, and save money. I am a mum of 2, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends (when not in lock down!), reading and mixing cocktails. My friends would often tell me that I should share my bargain finds and money saving tips, so I started this page to do just that! My content relates to bargains, side hustles, money saving tips, cocktail recipes, Disney finds (huge fan!!), kids activities and mumlife in general. Prior to starting this page, I worked as a conciliator/mediator for Consumer Affairs Victoria for 11 years, and have always been very passionate about helping both consumers and businesses alike. My goals for 2020 are to maybe start my own business, and to save enough money through side hustles to be able to afford a holiday with the family once lockdown is over - hopefully to Disney World!
I’m Captain FI and I am flying my way to Financial Independence. I currently live in Sydney, Australia and I am passionate about Personal Finance, Financial Independence and the freedom it provides. I wasn’t always an investor, but through studying, earning, side hustling and living frugally so that I could save and aggressively invest, I was able to build a seven figure investment portfolio and build passive income to cover my cost of living. I currently invest in Real Estate, Low cost (low management fee) total stock market index fund ETFs and LICs, Superannuation (the Australian ‘official’ retirement account similar to an IRA or 401K) and online businesses.
