About me

i've got a bright idea!

I've got a bright idea!

I am a 2010 Ohio University E.W. Scripps School of Journalism alumna! Currently, I am employed as a copy editor near Washington, D.C., but aside from that little fact the rest of my life is a mystery. But mysteries are exciting, right?

Bitty Budget is intended to help other fresh-out-of-college students survive joyfully on small amounts of cash. You know, during that first two or three weeks when you’re living off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because you have yet to receive your first paycheck and you just spent the rest of your savings (plus your parents’ savings) on the security deposit and first month’s rent for an apartment and an appropriate business suit and five or six packages of cheap spaghetti noodles or Ramen (depending on if you’re feeling like a carbohydrate overload or a sodium binge) to feed yourself for the next couple of weeks as well as a vehicle of sorts and some of that pesky, yet necessary, car insurance. Oh yeah, and you have no credit left either because you also maxed out your only credit card (and your parents’ cards (yeah, my parents are far too generous and supportive)) paying for all of these things. Money doesn’t grow on trees, you know. Because if it did, I’d be set back in my little college town, which is dotted with tons of that lovely greenery…

Anyway, I’ll get to the point. Being held back by a lack of funds rarely ever incites happiness, so I hope that this site can offer tips, highlight sales and act as a simple financial guide to living for less. Enjoy, discuss and comment away!
