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 ...

This week marks the one-year anniversary of Cash Fasting. In one whole year, I’ve paid off the last of my student debt, opened investing accounts outside of retirement, and started my journey towards FIRE. Those are some big moves! Blog-wise, I’ve written 85 posts and tens of thousands of words. Today, I’m looking back at everything that’s happened on this ... The post Reflecting back on one year of blogging appeared ...

It’s true. You can plan and plan to your heart’s content, but when life gives you apples instead of lemons, don’t keep trying to make lemonade. 😂 It’s been a quiet week on Cash Fasting because the real world came and demanded my attention. Despite the frustration of not being able to write and share more content with you all, this ... The post Sometimes, life just gets in the way of ...

Referral programs: the perfect way to incentivize people to get their financial shit in order. I’ve written in the past on how I’ve made a hefty amount of money from Chase Sapphire Preferred referrals. Since writing that post, I’ve referred yet another co-worker to the card, increasing my total referral bonus earn on the card to $450.  This post contains ...

This week, I made a “huge” purchase on a new work bag. It’s the biggest one I’ve made since buying a pair of $300 boots in February. Pre-Frugal Jane wouldn’t have batted an eye at the purchase; it’s heavily discounted (bless the Surprise Kate Spade sale), cute, and will be frequently used. Current Jane has a perfectly useable and only ... The post Things I miss about my Pre-Frugal life appeared ...

I have a moderately nice gym on the first floor of my apartment building. It’s nothing fancy, just a small room with basic equipment, mirrors, and a TV. It’s also free. As someone who is constantly trying to find ways to reduce costs, and also debating signing up for a yoga class to be more fit, WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG ... The post Some thoughts on going to the (free) gym ...

This past weekend, Ian and I took a trip to Boston to visit our friend Alice. We tried to be as frugal as possible but spent over $300 on what was essentially a day trip. Yikes! While the trip itself was a blast, cost-wise things could’ve been better. Here’s the cost breakdown: Transportation: $123.59 Food: $140.20 Other: $65 Total: $328.79 ...
