Welcome to SavingAdvice.com, a personal finance website that inspires and teach different ways of saving money. SavingAdvice.com offers a little bit of everything from financial articles, discussion forums, blogs (you can even create your own), newsletters, calculators and various other financial related tools. You may have seen us in the Washington Post, Budget Living Magazine, The Street, Reddit or even listened to us on the Radio.
This site is a community effort run by three of us although we try to keep it updated daily and feel we provide information that is competitive with sites that have much larger staff. Trey LaRocca, Kathryn Vercillo, Tamila McDonald and Amanda Stewart do most of the content writing while James Hendrickson handles most of the forum work.
Meet Amanda! She is an editor and writer extraordinaire with a passion for sharing information that helps people and communities to better themselves in some way.

She has written for a number of other online publications and you can also catch her on our sibling sites: Saving Advice, Budget and the Bees, and Our Debt Free Family. In addition to writing online, she also freelances for local newspapers in her hometown of Charlotte, NC.
