I’m Karen Bryan, a canny Scot. I’d like to help you save more money and live well on less; it’s about finding a balance between saving money and having fun. I’m not a financial adviser but if you know what you want from life, make a budget and get the most of your money, you can achieve your goals.
Me working in our garden in Berwick upon Tweed
I run my online publishing business from home, in beautiful Berwick upon Tweed. I founded the Europe a la Carte travel site in 2002 and the Help Me To Save personal finance lifestyle blog in 2011. I have an undergraduate business studies degree and lot of experience in stretching our family budget to bring up our twin sons who, thankfully, are now through university, both working and financially indepedent. My husband took early retirement, aged 51, in 2008.
