About Me!


It’s all about me! Well at least that is what I used to tell my husband before our hard fought for daughter arrived three years ago.  Since then everything has changed.  Once upon a time I saw myself as a female ‘Gordon Gecko’ sort, working as a stock market analyst for a range of companies for the last sixteen years.  Now I enjoy being a mum, play dough in one hand, Financial Review in the other.

I am here to combine my two passions: motherhood and money, and to share my substantial financial knowledge gained throughout my successful career.  I want to cut through the industry jargon and make your money make sense.  Hopefully you will find it helpful and entertaining.

I am available for sponsored posts, freelance writing, consulting and public speaking.  Please contact me at shelley@moneymummy.com.au

This is a great idea. I’m trying to save to buy a house and any advice is more than welcome, encouraged even. 🙂 Looking forward to reading more and saving a dollar or two.

I am so glad to be taking responsibility for myself in the area of money.i grew up hearing how much of a burden money or lack of it is, so have little skill in money matters. So thanks Shelley for having a blog like this. Kim

Hi Kim, it’s great to hear that you are getting in to learning about money. I am excited to be able to help you on your journey. Money Mummy

Hi Shelley! Just wanted to say how happy I am to have found your blog. A blog about money written by a mummy – that is one I’ll read! Money matters can sometimes be confusing and complex, you write clear and informative posts – thank you. Love your costco post! I agree with you – I actually joined Costco only to buy my TV from there. it was far cheaper there than anywhere else and the saving was more than the cost of the membership, so it was worth it. Looking forward to reading more! Cheers, Katie
