Thank you for stopping by my site. Caviar on a Budget has been, and still is, a work in progress for quite some time now. A little bit about myself: My name is Jessica. I was born and raised in the northshore of Chicago. I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in television writing, which I quickly learned was very useful in the real world. I lived in LA, Turks & Caicos, and Miami, before returning home to Chicago. There’s a saying that “nothing in life is free,” but  I have found that life is full of cheat codes. You just have to know what to look for. I hope my tips & tricks, as well as some stories of my adventures, are as entertaining as they are helpful.
