My name is Stephy. I became a “penny pincher” in college to save what little money I had after tuition, books and transportation expenses sucked my budget dry. Once I graduated with my master’s degree and couldn’t find employment within my field, those thrifty skills I learned came in handy again because every penny mattered when I was unemployed and living on what was left of my savings.

Since then, my circumstances have improved because of what I learned about budgeting and saving money which allowed me to stretch my money further. I wanted to share my experiences with others struggling with finances or those who simply wanting to learn to save money.
