From the Author
About a decade ago, I (Matthew Paulson) started a personal finance blog called American Consumer News and Toi Williams was one of our lead writers. We offered tips on budgeting, investing, insurance, real-estate and the whole gambit of personal finance topics. We had some early success and were garnering about 400,000 page views per month at its peak. After writing more than 3,000 blog posts, we actually ran out of stuff to write about and ended up having to rehash existing content so that we could keep our website's traffic up. I thought to myself at the time it would serve our readers much better to create a single comprehensive resource than throwing out periodically-updated versions of the same stories over and over again. At the time, self-publishing wasn't really a thing and that idea never went anywhere. While American Consumer News has come and gone, our desire to help people save money hasn't. Now that self-publishing is all the rage, Toi and I have "brought back the band together" to create the single best collection of money saving tips that you can find anywhere with our new book, Simple Savings.
