Hello from North GA! I’m Misty and I blog at Simple Organized Lifestyle, which is now having a blog name identity crisis because it sounds like I have a color coded sock drawer, which is not the case. Sigh.
However, I do write about personal finance and getting organized and I must say… the PF community is incredible! It is really hard in the first year on the online scene to prove there is a real non-spammy person on the other side of the blog but the PF crowd has been so genuine and supportive from the start. It’s much appreciated!
PF bio- Got mad at debt, disgusted with student loans, and gave myself a 3 year crash course in anything and everything personal finance. Books, podcasts, blogs, conferences, courses… good thing we got rid of cable Anyway, that was five years ago and we are now one month away from my last student loan payment and 36 months away from an early mortgage pay off. Life changing…totally tossed everything I had been taught- “get an education, get a job, get a 30 year mortgage on the white picket fence” out the window! I could talk about it non-stop but that’s where the blog and forums like this come in because not everyone is as passionate about Roth IRAs!
In addition to Simple Organized Lifestyle, I spend my days working in the education field and evenings with my husband, five year old son, golden retriever and a goldfish that my son won at a carnival three weeks ago Nice to meet y’all!
