The Simple Dollar – The Simple Dollar is an intriguing personal account of Trent Hamm, who went through a financial meltdown back in 2006 and lived to tell the tale; after getting into some serious dept with credit card companies and car expenses, Trent realized he urgently needed to get a grip on his money approach. From being a big spender who made the wrong choices, he picked up the pieces and within 8 month he managed to pay off all of his credit card debt and vehicle, and also established an emergency fund. Trent’s additional strong point, his love for writing, created this wonderful blog.

The result is a colorful, fun to read blog from a person who wishes nothing but the best to his readers.
