October expenses were crazy low and make it seem like we lived under a rock for the month. In fact, October was a nuttso month for us on so many fronts. I can’t even. I had no idea when we started where this mini-retirement would take us. I’ve been having a hard time wrapping my mind around how much life has changed over the last two years. As a person who ...

My oldest turned 10. 10! Double digits. We have had a lot of conversations about money, saving, working and buying things based on value. But all our kids know 10 is when you get to enter the grown-up world of money in our house. Up to this point, my kids have been earning money 3 ways. Doing small chores around the house: laundry, dusting, cleaning the bathroom, ect. A small side business: 2 ...

We don’t just need friends who are good with money. But our social circles will directly impact our personal finances.

I’m a naturally loyal to the end, kind of person. ...

  Every once in a while, everything falls into place! It’s been almost 2 years since we walked away from the 9-5 jobs. September was a long-awaited “Ah-ha!” moment for me. Two big things happened for me in September. I worked. And I rested. And it was AMAZING! Ok, let me unpack that a bit more.

Here’s why I think we ought to avoid them and what to focus on instead. 3 Reasons to Avoid the Crazy Sucess Stories 1. It ...

Fall, school and cooler weather are in full swing here! Every quarter I take a full week to read, think, plan and do my quarterly review. Of all my habits, I would have to say this one moves the needle for me the most! Plus my friends from Freedom is Groovy are in Montana this week!

So, it’s not even Summer anymore! But I lost this book for 2 months, then looked at the library (to no avail) then finally found it this week. It’s our very last book in the summer reading party. So if you prefer reading in the fall vs. summer season, this is perfect!   Daring Greatly by Brene Brown might have seemed like an odd fit for our summer reading party. There is ...
