Something I found difficult before I started on my house saving journey was a series of evidence of different women and millennials achieving financially. In this new series of case studies I will share the knowledge of others. For my first case study I am proud to introduce you to Tasha, a 28 year old, Brisbane based, single, millennial that I connected with through Instagram. In June 2018 she successfully became debt free clearing $11,489 of debt in 12 months. She writes a personal finance blog, tashagetsfrugal.com where she shares advice and tips, from the best Brisbane birthday freebies, to her budget updates, her goals, interviews with members of the debt free community and her personal finance journey.
