In an effort to simplify and make our progress easier to follow, I enhanced and created new charts, which I will be using in 2018. Below is a current state snapshot and a sneak peak of future tracking graphs. For the new gray graphs, when you add actuals it populates over the graphs and shows % progress, color coded and all, yay! For 2017, we passed our asset goal (and the stretch ...

Every month, I set out challenges for myself to create new habits or try new things, in a way that helps me focus and be accountable for them. Going forward I will start documenting them here, along with my learning, growth, wins and failures. I hope these challenges inspire you to create your own list, aligned with your life goals! Habits around the things that matter most to you create the ...

Challenge: Zero-Waste Periods As part of our move towards minimalism and a more gentle way of living, we are focusing on replacing and reusing where we can. This month the challenge for me was to replace menstrual or period products with better alternatives for the environment and for my own health. Why do this? Each year, globally, more than 12 billion pads and tampons are tossed into landfills and sewage systems, made with ...

A few months ago, we hit our assets goal and created a stretch goal – from $527.5k to $555.5k. This month, we hit that stretch goal so we started wondering if we should have a stretch goal for the stretch goal. Initially we thought hey, let’s try to hit $575k – $580k, but instead we decided to use any excess money from the stretch goal and put it towards our ...

I am amused the market is still standing so strong, having been expecting a correction for a long while now. Even more surprising to me, today we hit not only our end of year goal for 2017 but our stretch goal as well! Originally we wanted to finish with $527.5 in assets and later stretched it to $555.5k, which we achieved today! (plus a little extra). Maybe I can dare to ...

I documented here our process and experience during our initial journey towards minimalism. In this first pass, which took about 3 months, we wanted to see how much we could let go off and experience for ourselves if this made any difference or not. Absolutely one of the best things we have ever done. Below are a few pictures to give you an idea of what our uncluttering looked like and what ...
