Fatten The Wallet


Welcome to Fatten The Wallet.  As the name might suggest, this blog is anything money 💰 related.  If you’re looking for ways to make more money,  save more money, or get out of debt – then you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s get to know each other!

I’m Kelly and my goal was to never have to set my alarm clock ⏰ again.

I have been side hustling for as long as I can remember and it didn’t stop even when I had a 6-figure full-time job.  There is just something satisfying about side hustling.

I thought about quitting my job many times over the years but the unknown can be scary.  If the pandemic did not happen, I might still be at the job I hated with a passion.  So I guess you can say something good came out of it.

A little About My Blogging Journey

I wanted to start a blog back in 2008, 2011, and again in 2013.

But it wasn’t until 2017 that I came across a personal finance blog that just changed everything for me.

The duo bloggers are your average Joe and Jane who made a comfortable living, but they managed to accumulate over $1mil USD by saving, budgeting, and investing wisely.  They quit their jobs to travel the world (now they’re back teaching others how to do it and getting paid handsomely for it).

I was so inspired!  That’s exactly what I want to do with my life!  More freedom and flexibility.

I read the 3 books recommended by them: The Laptop Millionaire, The 4-Hour Workweek, and F.U. Money

The very next blog I came across was Making Sense of Cents.  I was mesmerized reading her income reports.  Is this for real?

I honestly never thought about escaping the 9-to-5 before.  I thought this was how I was supposed to live my life.  These books and Making Sense of Cents blog opened my eyes to possibilities that I didn’t know existed.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’ve always been good with money but I just didn’t know how to make my money work for me.  Within 2 weeks of discovering their blogs, I finished the 3 books, started to invest, and started my own blog.

So join me in this journey as we work towards having more time and freedom while making money!
