Her blog got its start when she and her mom listened to an audio book version of  Dave Ramsey’s book The Total Money Makeover.  She realized while listening that planning and budgeting your finances is interesting and can be fun – especially when you are young and haven’t had time to make many financial mistakes yet.  

She started her blog in January of 2013.  It has a number of topics, including CollegeCents, MomCents, ShoppingCents, and BlogCents.   The common theme seems to be financial advice and the travails of a teen (both good things!)  Her mom Charlotte is also a regular contributor. She’s updating her blog 2-4 times per week.

Two things seem to be missing:  FashionCents  and Your Two Cents (email/feedback)  She actually has a contact form, but under a rather more prosaic CONTACT US tab. (Which is perfectly fine– I just thought she’d like… (wait for it) My Two Cents.   (It probably wasn’t worth it)
