Kristin Wong is a freelance writer who has contributed to MSN, Lifehacker, CreditCards.com, Fidelity and her own frugality website, Brokepedia. Her work has been featured on Forbes, Marketplace Money, Kiplinger, HuffPost Live and Fox and Friends.
Kristin developed an interest in frugality and saving money at a young age, while growing up in a lower-middle-class household. As her frugal pursuits progressed, she became interested in other components of personal finance and wealth-building.

She currently writes and hosts videos for Arkleus Broadcasting, and in the past, she's written for the TV show "Hollyscoop" and the MSN Living series "Sex by the Numbers."
