Blog Title: The Penny Saved

Blogger name(s)/Alias(es): Jesse

Blog start date: March 14, 2007

About the Blog: 'I'm just a so called 'young professional' that had absolutely no money management skills throughout college. However, one fateful day I was laid off from work. I had no extra money in savings, I had a mortgage to pay, a car payment, and basically nothing lined up. I quickly learned how to save money and became interested in personal finance. Now, fast forward 9 months. I had a new job, and was once again slipping into money wasting ways. I spent $1200 on going out in one month. Thats over $40/day. I decided to make a change, and write about it…and help others do the same.

Ive found that a lot of people coming out of college don’t have a lot of experience managing money outside of 'do I have money in the bank or not.' (For most of my friends the answer is: not).' from the About page
