When CNY rolls around, Martha Stewart-wannabes start flooding your Facebook feed with pictures of their homemade pineapple tarts. Everyone else is like.. ain’t nobody got time for that.

In my previous life, I was a property lawyer who spent most of my time struggling to get out of bed or stuck in peak hour traffic. These days, as a freelance commercial writer, I work in bed, on the beach, in parks and at cafes, all while being really frugal. I like helping other people save money so they can stop living lives they don't like.
