My name is Renée. From mid 2010 until September 2012 I blogged under the name Andrea, you can read about that here. I am
26 years young and currently live on the beautiful East coast of Canada.
Why Nickel by Nickel:
I have a strong interest in personal finance and on this website you will find my rantings and ravings about money among other things. This blog started out in 2010, primarily as a chronicle of debt-repayment, since then it has evolved to cover life, travel, finance and just winging it as I jump from trying to save money to learning how to invest to seeing the world to renovating my fixer-upper house on the cheap. Wealth creation; nickel by nickel and one penny at a time. You see, progress doesn’t have to come in millions, as long as you keep moving.
My ultimate goal is financial independence and FREEDOM. What’s yours?
More about me:
I am an ambitious introvert who’s been called curious, cheap, funny, too ambitious, sweet, shy, a workaholic, complicated, smart, stupid, wild and arrogant. But… I’ll let you make up your own mind about me. I’ve moved quite a few times, I have some serious wanderlust, saudade, if you will. I love to travel and there are quite a few places left on my must-see list. I bought a small fixer-upper house in 2008 (by myself) that I’m trying to finish renovating which you’ll also find recorded on The Littlest House page. I have many interests and few true hobbies – I like to try new things! I thrive on your feedback so don’t hesitate to give me a shout!
Through blogging, I’ve found many great resources, websites and other personal blogs some of which you will find linked on the Link-Love tab. I’ve also found a great community of personal finance bloggers on the web that have been supportive and helpful every step of the way. Check out Yakezie when you get a chance.
