Thankfully, that was a while ago and a lot has changed. To keep me green and growing, I share stories of how I save more to explore.

Hi I’m Melody, and I’m on a mission to feel good about what my money can do for me and the world around me. My story isn’t “how I paid off $100,000 of debt” or “how I saved $100,000 by age 25”. It’s a slightly less impressive one, but I don’t think it’s any less important to share. My story is about a woman who decided in her late 30’s to learn how to put her money to work. And during the process, she got so freaking excited about how it felt that she started a blog in April of 2019 in hopes she could help others feel the same way.

The name’s Amanda Holden, but my pals call me Mandy, Mandicakes, Manderson Pooper, A.Hol (get it? like J.Lo but…grosser??) and—you guessed it—Dumpster Dog. Ahhhh yes, ol’ Dumpster Dog, that’s me. What you’re probably not thinking is: For a young and single working gal, that is one darling nickname!! It’s okay—I love it.

The easy fusion was surely thanks to my preference for Birkenstocks and half-eaten gyros over stilettos and grooming; creativity over tedium, always. This brand of scrappiness is the very essence of Dumpster Dog, and accordingly, the perfect name for my blog on money!
