Moving from the big city to a rural organic farm transformed how I think about personal finance and money. With a reduced income, no fancy stores, and limited access to services like garbage pickup, my lifestyle and relationship with money changed.
I started Squawkfox in 2008 as a financially fun newsletter for friends and have since been voted Canada’s Top Money Blogger by The Globe and Mail readership. Much of my traffic is from the United States, but I have readers around the world. I currently live in Toronto, Ontario where I just moved from an organic farm in rural British Columbia. I’ve also called Vancouver and Ottawa home. Carl is my husband. Chloe is my 2 year old daughter. Pivo is my dog. Our family budget is awesome.
