My name is Tiffany, and I'm 46. I have 4 adult daughters (well one is almost an adult) and 2 adorable grandsons. Currently living in Central Texas (I'm from NE Ohio) and I work part time at a Dollar Tree/Family Dollar combo store and watch one of the boys full time.
DIY is in my blood. From crawling under the car with a wrench at the age of 3 with my dad, helping my grandpa in his woodshop, sewing doll clothes with my grandma, or painting Bob Ross style with my mom, I've always been creating something. I DIYed my wedding and it was amazing, worked for a specialty clothing designer in Ohio creating intricate appliques for garments, and have done countless projects in our home.
Laying a floor, painting, organizing, using thrifted goods for maximum benefit are some of the things I've been most proud of in regards to creating my happy place. But in a volitile economy, it's hard to create the life you want when you're paycheck-to-paycheck.
Enter 2020. I decided to join the YouTube bandwagon as did many others who were stuck at home while the world was in disarray. When deciding my "niche" as it were, I chose to fall back on something I worked on years earlier - DIYS. I created some trash to treasures and handmade items and sold at local craft fairs. It didn't dawn on me then to create a channel. Oh, if I knew then what I know now....
So what is Broke Girl Aesthetic? Well, this came from a convo I was having one day when discussing decor styles. I was asked, what are you into, shabby chic, farmhouse? My reply was simply, "I guess I'd call it the broke girl aesthetic." And thus, the idea was born.
I've been on Youtube for almost 3 years now and have embraced the Broke Girl title, finding many ways to create gorgeous home decor on a budget. The focus is mainly on items you can find at discount stores like Dollar Tree, or using items you'd recycle or throw away like cardboard or plastic containers. I also LOVE to do designer dupes! Get that high end look without the high end price? Yes please!
There have been a number of companies I have been fortunate enough to work with, including Plaid Crafts, Simplicity, BeeBeeCraft and PandaHall to name a few. There are also several companies in which you'll find my affiliate links, including Amazon and Cricut. These all have great products for crafters, many are budget friendly, and I have loved sharing their products with my viewers. Rest assured, if I like a product, I'll say so and if I don't, well, you'll know 🤣
What does the future hold for this Broke Girl? Who knows? But I know one thing, I'll be crafting my way into it, one DIY at a time.
