Cheri Read is a freelance writer with a degree in accounting as well as nearly 20 years’ experience as a frugal single mom. When Cheri found herself divorced and broke a couple of decades ago, she watched her finances and her credit crumble before her eyes. She worked minimum wage jobs and struggled through college only to wind up in more debt. After several years of this stressful cycle, she decided to take control of her finances and dig herself out of her mess.
It didn’t happen overnight, but with some well-sought-out advice and a lot of budgeting, she did finally come out ahead. Since then, her passion has been helping other moms learn how to live on a budget, make money from home, and ditch the stress.
