Tips for budgeting on a low income

I’m looking for tips from personal finance experts on how low-income individuals can further stretch their funds. I’m looking for experts who can go beyond conventional wisdom and offer relatable, tangible advice that low income individuals (people earning below $30K depending on where they live in the U.S.) can apply to their lives. Requirements: Must be either a certified financial planner or an influencer (i.e. financial blogger or speaker) who has earned $30K or less and can provide firsthand experience and advice on creative ways to stretch limited funds. Since Bustle is a women’s site, I’d prefer to feature women and would especially like to hear from women of color, trans women, and women of different sexual orientations. Gender non-binary femmes are also welcome to reach out.
