Our Story

Hello, I'm Santis O'Garro, a single mother in Dublin. I've always understood the incredible benefits of budgeting; if I'm frank with you, I'm genuinely passionate about it.

In 2018 I hit rock bottom, up to my eyes in debt and not being able to make ends meets with my wages. I had a break down and I wouldn't wish that feeling on anyone.

I was able to turn my life around in 2019 and I cleared €15027 in dent in less than a year. I am no ser hero I don't have special skills. I am from a working class background and I achieved a feet that not many of my peers would have even consider possible.

Budgeting has been my lifeline, and I've witnessed the transformative power it can have on one's life.

Financial wellness is more than a passion for me; it's a calling. I know firsthand the feeling of being awake at night, worrying about making ends meet, and I also understand the consequences of not openly discussing money.

I create products with one goal in mind to create a shift in how we think about managing the money we earn. No matter what your demographic I create products to help/

Recently I found out that I was neurodiverse. This made me made me look at the way I created the planner from a whole other angle. I wanted budgeting to become the ultimate Self Care Experience. My budgeting process is deceptively simple because it had to be.

Why can't a budget product be both practical and aesthetically pleasing? When I embarked on my journey to find a budget planner in Ireland, I often felt like I was punishing myself. It was then that I decided to create my very own budget planner, incorporating all the invaluable tips and tricks I learned while clearing €15,027 in debt in under a year.

In phase two, we empower you to understand that your self-worth is not tied to your net worth. You have the potential to maximize your income and live your best life.

I'm deeply passionate about what I do. I run programs and workshops in schools, colleges, and corporate settings. It gives me goosebumps to think that I can make a meaningful impact in my life by uplifting others. Budgeting transformed me from a struggling single mother into a TV presenter, a published author, and someone who can change people's mindset about money. It has been a game-changer for me in so many ways, and I truly believe it can be the same for you.

I never wanted to merely talk about money; I wanted to build a community of budgeters and go-getters alike. Here, we refuse to accept mediocrity. We set goals and create lifelong habits that lead us to live the life we genuinely deserve.
