Welcome to the New Wise Dollar!

Wise Dollar

Wise DollarWelcome everyone to the new Wise Dollar! For those who had been following Wise Dollar, it was started by Jose back in early 2013 and through a set of various circumstances found himself with little time to manage the blog. Having run a blog myself for almost two years now, I can attest to how time consuming managing a blog can be.

That said, I suspected Jose was having problems with the time needed to manage the site and reached out to him as I didn’t want to see the good foundation he had started go away. Long story short, I’ve purchased the site from Jose and will be looking to continue what he started. 🙂 I plan to continue building much on what Jose had previously started here on the site.

Beyond that, I’ll be looking to share basics on how to be smart when managing your money…thus the name Wise Dollar! 😉 We’ll be covering such topics as:

  • Investing
  • Wise use of credit
  • How to avoid and/or pay off debt
  • Frugality
  • A little lifestyle to boot!

Joining me in this endeavor will be one of my favorite writers in the personal finance niche, Laurie from The Frugal Farmer?as she will be sharing her voice with us several times per month.?Most of the content on the site is admittedly a little old, but we will be adding some solid new content over the next few days and weeks that will hopefully bring you back for more. 🙂

Ok, now it’s shameless plug time. If you would consider following Wise Dollar on the following social platforms that would be much appreciated:


Til next time everyone and thanks for following our journey!
