Nice to Meet You!

I’m Penny, a thirty-year-old educator who lives in the ‘burbs of a big Midwestern city with my husband. In two years, we paid down over $50,000 worth of debt on two teachers’ salaries, thanks to some serious savings and extra side hustling. In addition to exploring the world of personal finance, I’m also looking to live more purposefully – whether it’s decluttering or organizing, traveling or exercising – and to find time to pick up pennies.
