How Amanda has saved money

  • I buy things when they’re on sale and build a small stockpile and use it until it needs to be restocked – my top BUDGET tips are buy reduced or discounted items this saves quite a bit of money
  • Cook in bulk and freeze for meals when needed
  • Only shop for items that you need
“I love watching the savings grow it amazing that in that amount of time. I’ve been able to achieve this amount I feel fantastic about it,” she says.
“With my savings I have a big goal in plan for them it will eventually be enough for a home deposit.”

Amanda’s journey to better health

Amanda Grace is 41 from Adelaide and has seven children aged between 24 and three years old.

For Amanda, the defining moment for wanting to make a change to her physical health was finally facing a mirror. It had a huge impact on her.

She shares, “I never ever looked at myself in the mirror and one day two months ago I made myself look and I really didn’t like what I saw and that made me want to change my life.”

That change was joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge as a Platinum member.

Amanda has lost 36 kilos in 10 months and is feeling fantastic!

I’m in a better mood, in general, do not need to nana nap throughout the day anymore and am finding my self more motivated and determined to achieve my goals.”
