Me in one of my favorite natural frugal habitats—a museum

My name is Erin and I’m a 20-something living and working in DC. In 2016 I started to feel like I was living paycheck-to-paycheck, and in early 2017 I decided to finally get a handle on my finances. I fell down the rabbithole of personal finance blogs and emerged as a personal finance blogger myself! I’m using this blog to document my path to financial independence, as someone living on a not-so-big salary in a high-cost-of-living area.

I’m on Twitter and Instagram @reachingforfi, and you can email me at reachingforfi [at] gmail [dot] com. Come say hi!
