About

Look, it’s me and a rock

Hi! I’m The Closet Budgeteer. I’m a 20-something gay Asian based in Brooklyn, NY.

By day, I work an absurdly corporate job in Manhattan. By night, I’m a free-spirited adventure planner. I’ve run the NYC Marathon, flown to Santorini, and eaten Jordanian cuisine—all while saving half my income.

What’s this blog about?

On this blog, I share my journey to answer one question:

How can you get more out of life for less?

Life is short. I believe that we should treat every day as an adventure.

I also believe, however, that adventures cost time, energy, and money.

Most people aren’t born with money. I wasn’t. I work to afford rent and groceries. That takes time. How can you craft a remarkable life given these constraints?

That’s what interests me, and that’s why I started this blog. Here, I approach the question from a personal finance angle. I emphasize the “personal” part, using stories from my own life.

What you can expect:

You may enjoy this blog if:

  • You believe in building a better life. It doesn’t matter where you start. You can take steps toward a life that fulfills you, not one that you must endure.
  • You want to take control of your money. You don’t want it to control you.
  • Yet, you also want to enjoy life today. Because who knows what might happen in ten years?
  • You’re quietly rebellious. Convention means nothing to you.
  • Lastly, you’re a thinker. You don’t take things at face value. You ask “why?” and “how can we do better?”
