About Katie and TTB


Hello future [and present] friends! My name is Katie and I am here to help you live your life on a budget. Having a budget doesn’t mean ending your life.  If you need tips on saving money, being thrifty, and having fun with little resource, then “This, That, and the Budget” is the place for you!

Nathan and I have been married for 6 years and we live in Nashville, TN. You can read more about us here. We’ve always been decent budgeters, but it wasn’t until we dropped down to one income that we really needed to be disciplined about where our money went. Out of that experience, the idea of sharing what I’ve learned with you was born.

“This, That, and the Budget” is my endeavor to inspire people living on budgets, tight or not. This is not a finance blog. I’m not qualified to give financial advice (aside from the fact that I’m just a natural nerd when it comes to putting finances together), so if you need real financial advice, please seek a professional.

However, I’m not writing only about money and budgets. I write about my life and ways to have a life on a budget. It’s all-encompassing. It covers everything you can think of, just with a thrifty spin!
