M is for Money

BlogHer Original Post

Welcome to M is for Money, where I share my financial life with the world. My interest in personal finance began 7 years ago, when I realized I was living paycheck to paycheck. I started to save, but still managed to rack up too much debt. In 2007 I committed to erase over $20,000 in credit card debt in one year. After reaching that goal in 2008 I started this blog. My journey out of debt taught me valuable lessons – saving, investing and living more simply. I’ve made my share of financial mistakes and learned from each of them. Now I share my stories so that together we can achieve financial independence.
