One of my favorite things about Maria’s writing is that it is very real. She is very down to earth and gives practice advice on finance, frugal living, and money mindset! The best part is that she always shares personal stories and real life examples.

Maria has done a fantastic job with her blog. I first came across her blog when I was researching fellow female personal finance bloggers, and she was generous enough to add my blog to her list (https://handfulofthoughts.com/female-canadian-personal-finance-blogs/). One of my favourite articles on her site is the Story behind the Numbers, which can be found here: https://handfulofthoughts.com/story-behind-the-numbers/.
