Hello and welcome to Wiser Dollar. Perhaps you are wondering about the writer of such a blog, well I am a husband, dad and writer about finances and family life. My wife and I have been married for over 20 years and we have two kids living at home. We are from Texas and have lived in Lubbock for many years now. Over the years we have done quite well with some of our financial choices and not so well with others. My intent in writing for Wiser Dollar is to share those practical ideas and experiences that either helped us or didn’t help and from which we learned. I am finding that blogging about finances and family life is enjoyable and a bit therapeutic for myself. I hope Wiser Dollar is helpful, as well as enjoyable, for you too. If you find Wiser Dollar to be beneficial then please let friends know.
