Welcome!  My name is Allison Baggerly and I am the face behind Inspired Budget.  I currently live in Denton, Texas with my husband, two sons, and our three-legged dog, Joey.

My journey with budgeting began in 2011. This was the year that my husband and I found ourselves newly married, loaded down with over $111,000 worth of debt, and expecting our first energetic boy.  We were overwhelmed and undereducated on how to set our family up for success financially.  I reacted like any other pregnant lady would.  I grabbed a snickers and got to work  reading anything and everything that I could on budgeting and finances.  It took us 4 1/2 years to tackle our debt while also cash flowing several surgeries and hospital stays.

During this process of personal and financial growth, I grew to love budgeting.  The thought of being in control of my money was freeing.  I want others to have that same sense of control over their finances.  I don’t expect everyone to fall in love with budgeting like I did, but I do hope to equip my readers with tips and tools to help them face their financial fears and be in control of their future.

Do you have a budget success story?  I’d love to hear it!
