About Me

Welcome to The Penny Hoarder! I hope you enjoy our community and the articles posted here. I look forward to interacting with you and providing you the resources you need to make & save extra money.  

My name is Kyle Taylor and I’m a hoarder. A penny hoarder that is…..

Kyle TaylorMy family and I like to joke that my entrepreneurial spirit began when I was 8 years old. My dad worked for a large credit card processor so we always had old terminals and cash registers lying around the house.

Instead of playing with “Power Rangers” like the rest of my friends, I used play time to try and convince my family members to invest in my conglomerate of make-believe banks and equity markets that I was running in the living room.

When I was 15 I started clipping coupons to help my mom pay the grocery bill. I joined a few coupon trading groups and started vigorously looking for new ways to cut costs. Our grocery bill quickly fell until it was under $20 a week.

I have since used my non-traditional methods of saving and earning money to help pay for rising tuition bills, car payments and rent, all the while never having to answer to a boss.

After much encouragement from friends and family, I’ve decided to start blogging about my wacky and weird ways to make extra money. And that is how “The Penny Hoarder” was born.
