Too bad I missed the early bird pricing on the event. Who knew you guys would be hosting an event on my birthday when I will be in the area as my wife and I finish up the driving part of our 50 State tour! I will be in Orlando which isn't too far of a drive from the event so I am going to try to see if I can make it work for sure. I don't drink but it will be great to meet some fellow Penny Hoarders and learn from some successful side hustlers!Read More...

After reading some of The Budget Mom's posts, I was looking into making something like this for my home. I was so happy to see this article from The Penny Hoarder shortly after, it was uncanny! I like to combine this idea with bullet journaling a little, making my own mash-up version. I love it.Read More...

@Susan L. Miller We have used Freecycle off and on for years. We got the foot and headboards for our queen-sized bed through the program. We have seen many items we no longer use go to other homes that would use them and recommend it heartily! We have also used our "Marketplace" here in our area on Facebook to buy and sell things. There are so many ways to go and programs to use! Happy selling...and as one of our mentors says "Think..and grow RICH!"Read More...
I'm not sure how many were here when I joined the Penny Hoarder Community, but I do know that it seems as if we've grown by leaps and bounds. I've met some interesting people and like having information and ideas coming in! May we continue to grow in numbers as well as in wealth.Read More...

How do you achieve becoming an MVP member? What about Community Advocate? Is there a list of what each title stands for in the forum?Read More...
@Theodora We're glad to hear that these things are still in effect. I would rather be asked than to try to push my way into a position such as Moderator, or Community Ambassador. I just like to be helpful when I can and if the company thinks I'm able to be of some use, then that's great. If not, that's fine, too. I'm here to help whether in a position or not.Read More...
Everyone..just a reminder that you can always direct message @Ashlee with any questions you have about the community..membership or otherwise. @Moore Income the program is still alive and well. It's a way of honoring our most active members and give them some special privileges, etc.Read More...

Hi! It’s great to be here!!

my name is Ame, and I’ve been reading The Penny Hoarder for more years than I can count. But I’m ecstatic for this site as I really need some help!! I’m 66, retired on disability (teacher in Detroit mostly: asthma) and have had several major financial ???catastrophes? Upheavals?? That have left me at this point living on a fixed income (aren’t we all 😊) which does not cover my basics, and I don’t know what to do/how to fix it....SITUATIONS: divorce...taken to the cleaners! Son diagnosed...Read More...
In terms of work, as a past teacher, have you ever thought of online tutoring? Sites are always hiring.Read More...
In my opinion, it's always worth finding a therapist if you think you may need to. Please keep looking. It's tough to find good counseling here in NH too. There is often a wait list, but get on it. Eventually you come to the top of the list, and if you don't need them anymore, you just say so. Good luck. I'm glad you have some support.Read More...
