About The Blog
The Aim of Five Pence Piece
Five Pence Piece is a British man’s blog about personal finance, saving, investment, debt and frugality.
Most of the popular blogs that discuss these topics tend to concentrate on the American markets. The general concepts and advice hold just fine, but when it comes to discussing specific products or concepts, it can cause issues. It is my hope that Five Pence Piece will at least in part, help address that gap for British readers. American readers might also learn something about the British financial system – I can safely say in my reading I now know more about the American system than I did a year ago.
The blog starts retrospectively, looking back at My Financial Meltdown and how I vowed to dig myself out, and never let myself get into that situation again. My long term goals are to prosper financially, buy my own home, and be financially astute, frugal and above all, financially sound.
Five Pence Piece also concentrates routinely on helping people get out of debt without resorting to things that can affect credit scores and wreck life plans. With simple adjustments I can show you how you can work your way out of debt and back towards prosperity. I know this works, because it’s exactly what I am doing.

I’d like to thank Trent over at The Simple Dollar for the inspiration to do this. In some ways we are much alike, albeit he is further ahead in his goals than I am. I’d also like to thank Five Cent Nickel for the inspiration on the naming of this blog and for making me believe it worthwhile.
I’d also like to thank djuce graphic design for the amazing logo that they very kindly donated to Five Pence Piece. If you need a graphics design company with excellent prices and amazing people, drop them a line. Considering they didn’t ask for a penny (or five pennies) for mine I think they did a stunning job. Thank you, Scott & Sarah.
