The Wallet Moth is a money and lifestyle blog focused on providing people with the tools they need to create the lifestyle they really want. Main topics include saving money tips, minimalism, and strategies to work remotely.

Why do you write about money?

Learning how to manage my money properly is one of the biggest reasons I was able to make some drastic changes in my own life, and I want to give other people the tools they need to do the same.

How did you start blogging?

I started blogging in early 2017, around the same time I had just quit my 9 – 5, started my own freelance business, and was about to fly to Thailand for a year-long travel adventure. It seemed like a good time to add one more thing to my plate!

What’s your most popular post and why?

My most popular post is 20 frugal living tips to try this year. I think people really resonate with the small, easy changes you can make to your daily routine that can have a huge impact on your spending.


What’s your favourite post you’ve written, and why?

One of my favourite posts is where I explain exactly I am able to make money while I’m traveling by the world. It makes me pretty proud of how far I’ve come in just a year.

What’s your number one money tip?

To make habits! Habits are the only thing that are going to make a long-term difference on your saving, spending, and happiness in life.


What’s your top blogging tip?

To be consistent, and to keep going. I definitely have the odd wobble that I’m not good enough and that my blog is a waste of time – but those are quickly replaced when I receive a message from a reader telling me how much I’ve helped them.


Why are you part of UK Money Bloggers?

It’s fantastic to have a community of like-minded bloggers. I find it so helpful to get ideas and advice from others who have been doing this far longer than I.
