After years of working as an officer, Ms. Holden starts to realize that it is not the job that she wants to do. In fact, she enjoys traveling around the world and dreams to visit South Africa at least once in her lifetime.

However, the savvy spender has saved a lot of money on food for doing so.
There were also times she got caught eating food taken from the bin and got a nickname the Dumpster Dog. However, Ms. Holden never shies away from her unusual eating habits. She also creates a personal blog with the same nickname and documents her saving journey.
