Denise founded a company: Money Magnet, Inc. (MMI) many years ago. The main focus of that company was to teach debt relief. Although, being debt free is important; Denise discovered people needed more than debt relief. So, she decided to close MMI in 2012. However, people kept calling her and asking her financial questions. In addition, when the economy crashed Denise did not feel the impact of the crash until 2009. At that time, her income was reduced by 75% monthly. But, her lifestyle did not change. Many people ask her: how do you live off of what you are making? So, she decided to start a blog and tell the story. So, Dee's Cheap Living was born and the mission broaden.
