Late February is a weird time of the year. Winter has been around for so long and yet we aren’t nearly to spring for quite some time. This seems exacerbated for us in the Pacific Northwest this year because we got snow in November and now again in the last part of February.

My husband and I like good, quality food. We love to support local businesses and buy sustainably as much as possible. We sort of figured that choice meant that our grocery bill would always be higher than the average because we didn’t want to settle on the quality of our food. Because of that, we… The post We Cut Our Grocery Budget By 63% And Eat Better Than Ever appeared first ...

Sometimes the words just flow when I write blog posts. Today is not that day. I started these Friday Frugal Five posts pretty early on in this blog as a way to get inspired when I didn’t feel like writing or that I didn’t have anything to say, so I guess it’s serving its purpose… The post Friday’s Frugal Five (2018 – Week 7) appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...

We just got back from another long weekend of truck camping out on the Olympic Peninsula as an extension of our son’s birthday celebrations. Instead of lots of stuff, we go on lots of mini adventures instead. Since we set the truck up with the canopy and air mattress back in September, we’ve been out… The post Our Family’s Frugal Alternative To The Instagram #Vanlife Weekend appeared first on Tread Lightly, ...

My son turned THREE this week, and since we are – okay I am – big on birthdays, we had multiple celebrations for him over the course of the birthday week. This is such a fun age and I’m loving everything we get to do with him. 1. We had my in laws over for… The post Friday’s Frugal Five (Toddler Birthday Edition) appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...

We spent what felt like a lot of money this month.  I have to admit, I put off adding up our expenses in January because I just knew we hadn’t done as well as I would have hoped when I set our big financial goal for this year. After all, we decided to go out of… The post Monthly Financial Update: January 2018  appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week. This weekend we will be celebrating my son‘s third birthday with homemade pizza and cupcakes, per his request. So of course we had to test out the pizza dough recipe this week to make sure it was good enough for his party 😉 1. We… The post Friday’s Frugal Five (2018 – Week 5) appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...

When I turned thirty last month, I wrote out my thirty financial successes that had gotten me to this point in life, but I promised I would follow that post up with the flip side of that coin – the financial mistakes that also happened along the way. Unlike some financial bloggers, I won’t tell… The post Letter To My Fifteen Year Old Self: Financial Mistakes To Avoid appeared first on ...

Happy Friday! Amazingly another week has gone by and we’ll be into February soon. Life is generally good, albeit busy, in large part because I have my afternoons to play with my son (and to get appointments and house chores done). By the time the weekend rolls around, we’re in pretty good shape with the… The post Friday’s Frugal Five (2018 – Week 4) appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...

In the last few months since we’ve embarked on the task of seriously slashing our grocery budget, we’ve eaten a lot of tacos. Not only are they quick and easy to make, but we all love them and don’t mind eating them weekly, so they end up on the menu again and again. There are… The post Quick And Easy Homemade Pork Street Tacos (74¢/Serving) appeared first on Tread Lightly, Retire Early. ...
