If you are reading this you might be wondering, “who is this Aldi shopping fool?” Hold on, be nice. By day I am a producer on the Clark Howard Show – which is the greatest job ever. The things I have learned over these past 7 years are invaluable. I’m a lucky guy to get to work with such a great team. By night I like to drink beer and blog (not at the same time – drinking and blogging is not encouraged) about the things I am learning financially as things pop up in my life. I hope you can glean some helpful information from my successes and failures (I’ll be sharing both).
What makes me qualified? Well, working for one of the greatest consumer advocates in the land certainly helps. Also, saving money is in my blood. When I was a kid in my formative years our family went through some really hard financial times. Those years really shaped who I am and how I approach money. For a while I was cheap and stingy, which isn’t becoming. I’m now trying to strike a balance of being a good saver while being generous with my money too.
Living life on the cheap is one of my passions. But that doesn’t mean I don’t live life! This blog is for anyone who doesn’t want to miss out on all that life has to offer because of their frugality. I’ll show you how to do it all and keep your money! You can’t find this type of money saving advice just anywhere.
But enough about me – if you have any topics you would like addressed or want to know how to advertise on this rapidly growing website where folks come for money saving advice I would love to hear from you. If you are interested in having me speak at one of your gatherings or just want more info about the site feel free to drop me a line. I usually respond quickly unless I am out of the country.

I’ll try to always make it clear when there is an affiliate link on my page for the sake of my readers. I do NOT do sponsored posts and I do NOT write about things unless I personally use them or am intrigued by their benefit to the public as a whole. I will never write about anything for the sake of making money. I just really like sharing the things I’ve learned about money through the years with you, my faithful reader. Thanks so much for being here. And just remember that if you do like the advice, clicking on the link through my site as opposed to getting there another way helps to keep this train rolling. Thanks for being supportive! By the way, I’m also not an investment professional.
