Hello, and welcome to my blog!
My name is Eva. I am the owner and writer of this blog.
I started GirlCountingPennies.com in May 2013 to document my journey to debt freedom. Back then I had £14,000 worth of consumer debt and no savings to my name. I was a girl who struggled to understand money and spent many years living in financial denial. Then one day I decided it was time to take control of my financial life, destroy my debt and start saving for the future.
In the 18 months to follow, I was working hard to get my debt paid off. Writing about my progress on this blog kept me motivated and determined to succeed. I reached debt freedom in December 2014. It was not easy but so worth it!
WHAT HAPPENED THEN?
I took time off blogging to do some travelling and start a family. Together with my partner, who is debt free as well, I saved some money and travelled to many beautiful places in Europe. Then I fell pregnant and had a baby in November 2015.
These days I am a debt-free, budget-loving, stay-at-home Mama. I am blogging again and setting challenges for myself to save as much as I can. I share my progress on the blog along with many budgeting and money saving tips, ideas for fun and frugal activities, stories from my trips and so much more!
Along with my goal to create a financially secure future for my family, my mission is to help others struggling with debt to destroy it once and for all. If I could do it, so can you. I urge you to read about my experience with fighting debt and start your journey today.
I would love to hear from you. So if you wish to get in touch with a question or just to say hi, please leave a comment or use my contact form, and I will reply to you as soon as I can.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
Thank you for stopping by!
