Hey there. I’m Connie, a 20-something living in NYC. I am a New York native – born and raised in Brooklyn. I went to college in a small town in upstate New York (it seemed small to me with a population of around 50,000…I guess that can be considered big to some?). After graduating, I promptly moved back to the big city to start my career.
I’ve spent the past five years working in the eCommerce industry. In my spare time, I’m a freelance writer, content manager, and digital strategist.
To be completely honest, I’m probably not the ideal person to be writing about personal finance. A few years ago, I was drowning in $20,000 worth of student loans and charging up a storm on my credit card, without any kind of real plan to get myself out of it. After realizing how much I was earning (not much) and how much I needed to save (a lot), I knew I had to make some changes. And that’s how Savvy With Saving came to be.
I started this blog to keep myself accountable for my finances and also share my successes (and failures) along the way. Over the past few years, a lot has changed. I’m no longer in debt and in a pretty good place financially but there’s still a lot more work to be done. My goal is be financially independent and ultimately, just spend my time doing things I love…without having to worry about money. I’d like to take you on this little journey with me and hopefully share any great tidbits I learn along the way.
*a somewhat obvious but obligatory disclaimer – i am not a professional. please take any of my opinions or advice with a grain of salt. i love to share any great tips i find but keep in mind, what works for me won’t necessarily work for you.
