About the Author

In 2009, Tabitha Philen and her husband, Shane, felt trapped in a dark pit of financial problems. Being challenged to cut her budget by a financial adviser, Tabitha discovered that when combining coupons with sales prices and buying in quantities to build a stockpile, her grocery expense on each trip to the store was lowered by 50% to 90%. Since her coupon binder was saving them so much money, her husband named the notebook “Penny.”

In 2010, Tabitha wanted to be able to share her shopping tips and started a blog, A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned. She began writing as if her coupon binder were the author, signing everything as “Penny.” The website grew quickly and her readers assumed that “Penny” was her name.

In January 2012, Tabitha combined several websites into one, Meet Penny. At this new comprehensive website, she is able to write about frugal living and homeschooling as well as Autism, cooking, entertaining, blogging, and more.
Tabitha’s honors as a blogger include:

Membership in the iHomeschool Network, where she serves on the Social Media Team
Voted into the Top 25 Homeschooling Mommy Bloggers at Circle of Moms (2012)
Recognized as one of 15 Pinterest users mothers should follow by iVillage, a division of NBCUniversal (2012)

Tabitha resides in Mobile, Alabama with her husband and their four children (ages eight years old and under). She also serves as a freelance writer, having written articles for ParentLife Magazine, Bay Area Christian Family Magazine, Essential Woman Magazine, and Home Educating Family, and is available for speaking engagements or workshops.
