Fiscal Fizzle is a personal finance blog launched in early 2009 by Wojciech Kulicki. It’s a place to find a wide variety of money tips, tools, practical solutions, and resources, with new posts published several times per week. The goal of this site is to explore new perspectives on money, try new approaches and systems, and experiment. If you’re new to the site, I suggest starting here.
Most people simply call me Wojo, but my full name is Wojciech Kulicki. I was born in communist Poland in 1983 and lived there until the age of 9. I moved to New York with my Mom, where I lived until I left for college, and eventually settled down in Florida with my wife.
In 2010, we celebrated the birth of our first child, and welcomed a baby brother in 2012.
Growing up during the end of the Cold War (and visiting many times since), I got to witness poverty and frugality firsthand. To this day, my parents and grandparents focus on limited consumption, saving, and spending with cash, and demonstrate incredible creativity in how to make money last.
By 2009, I was more than three years out of college, moving forward quickly in my career, and getting ready for marriage and a new family.
But things were not always so rosy–my wife was laid off twice since graduating, I was watching my industry and the real estate market fall apart, and money suddenly became the topic of choice in my social circles. I realized that I could make a difference with my new-found passion and help people.
Today, Fiscal Fizzle is much more than a hobby. I’m immersed in it on a daily basis, but I’ve also realized that learning how to handle money is a life-long experience. I’d love to teach you what I’ve learned, and learn from you in return. Please consider subscribing to the blog today; it’s completely free.
