Unless you’ve decided to not gift any presents this year, the holiday season can be rough for us frugal-minded folks. Generally, I try to avoid spending money, but I don’t skip out on holiday gifting. I enjoy giving gifts! Staying on a budget over the holidays hasn’t always been successful in the past. Well, I’m getting smarter this year. After much ... The post The Cash Fasting Gift Guide: Low Budget Gift ...

One of the best benefits, in my opinion, of blogging, is that the goals I write about are always accessible. It’s not like resolutions of the past, where I’d write something on a piece of paper but completely forget about it only a few weeks later. When I set my 2017 goals, I knew I wanted to focus on financial ... The post My 2018 Financial Goals appeared first on Cash ...

Prior to this summer, when I paid off my student debt, I didn’t think about my net worth. Why' I’ve been using Mint as a budget calculator for over four years, and the site couldn’t account for my loan balance because I owed my parents, not the bank. However, now that I’m done with debt, things have changed. Why am ... The post A Cash Fasting Reveal: My Net Worth appeared ...

After over a year of Cash Fasting away by myself (or otherwise roping in poor Ian), someone has made a contribution! Of course, it was a real-life friend who reached out – you’ve met her before; it’s Alice, my fellow friend in frugality. For two weeks, she attempted a full no-spend challenge. Let’s see how she did. ________ After reading ... The post Cash Fasting Round 7: A Two-Week No Spend ...

This year, I finally paid off my student debt. I’m lucky enough to have parents who paid for my education costs upfront, then let me pay them back in my own time, interest-free. For many students, this is not the case. There are countless stories of people who dutifully send monthly payments toward loans, only to find out years later ...

In a recent update, I got SUPER excited after calculating that I had averaged a 64% savings rate in Q3’17… like, wtf?! In retrospect, I’ve realized I should add some additional clarity on what that looks like for me. That 64% was calculated by looking at my savings over my take-home income. I’ve seen a savings rate calculated two different ... The post What does a 64% Savings Rate Actually Look ...

2017 is wrapping up way faster than I’d like. Fall is here, Halloween is around the corner, and I don’t know if I’ve made as much progress towards my goals as needed. That’s not to say that there haven’t been successes this year. After all, I paid off my student debt in June, which has allowed me to really jumpstart ...

It’s here, finally! Another Cash Fasting Challenge! Thank. Goodness. The last challenge I did was four months ago (whoops) when I didn’t spend any money on food for a whole week. I don’t know what it is about food, but it’s always the category that I end up targeting for these challenges, probably because it’s got the most potential for ...

Folks, I’ve been alone for the last three weeks, living that “single lady” life. This is the first time I’ve ever truly been by myself in a home before. In college I always had roommates, and before I moved in with Ian I lived with two other girls in a small house. Three weeks is a decent amount of time ...
