Money Spruce

Twitter: @jeffreytrull

Money Spruce started in January 2011 with a goal to deliver practical yet sometimes-radical personal finance advice that anyone can use in his or her daily life. My goal is to challenge readers to consider less-traditional strategies for dealing with money. Along with providing strategies, Money Spruce gives practical and useful advice for money in everyday life.

Money Spruce explores topics of frugality, credit, savings, and other finance issues while also considering the value of time. These topics encompass several of the key factors that increase happiness while reducing stress and worry.

A few tenets for posts and ideas on Money Spruce:

1) Money Spruce will feature 2-3 new posts every week.

2) I really like to keep things as simple as possible. While I can delve into IRAs, home mortgages, and other advanced topics, I’ll keep most of the posts light so that the majority of readers can relate and act on the information and advice presented.

3) I will keep posts short and readable. While posts like “168 Ways to Choose a Credit Card” may contain a lot of information, it doesn’t do much for me in terms of readability.

4) Every post that presents a problem will offer some sort of solution. I don’t enjoy being told something is wrong but not being given an idea how to fix it. I’m guessing you feel the same way, too.
