Hello friends, its been awhile!  It's time to stop hiding and return to the world of financial freedom blogging.  While I have a few ideas bumbling around in the back of my head for blog posts I will keep this one short and sweet and fill you all in on a few major life events that have happened this year. I was seriously injured in February while exercising.  I dislocated my ...

Ms. DebtFree here with an individual spending update.  We try to keep our focus on generating positive vibes to our readers and social media followers, but we also like to toss in some harder truths now and then. Lately I've been thinking about how often I justify my wasteful spending by saying "I need this" or "I deserve to reward myself because I met my student loan payment goal."  Blah, ...

Today we both want to share another part of our story with you: why we don't share Ms. DebtFree's student loan debt.Her PerspectiveMany of my (Ms. DebtFree) friends and family have made side comments about why they think Mr. DebtFree should be helping pay off my student loans if we're planning our future together.  *big sigh*  Well first off, I'm always a bit taken aback that they feel the need ...

Quick, everyone grab your pickax, there's gold in them thar hills!  Part of the purpose of this blog is to track our efforts to increase our passive income.  Every month I release a passive income update that covers how we are working to grow income streams to surpass our monthly spending.  One stream of passive income that we have been playing with is Cryptocurrency mining.  I have mined Bitcoin and ...

Ms. DebtFree here with some honest confessions.  We have individual Mint accounts to track our spending and tonight I decided to use this fun feature to trend my spending for the last 12 months by merchant.  Yeah, it's bad enough that I had to look at my per-store spending!For fun I thought I'd break it down into the top categories that embarrass me the most.  Now these are not necessarily ...

The numbers are in for our November spending update!  I am hoping these posts provide transparency on how we are approaching spending, which will set up our strategy for attacking debt.  Monthly updates force us to constantly audit and review our financial situation, and from this information we can target areas where we want to improve our performance and meet our goals.  When confronted with the reality of spending and ...

It's my favorite time of the month again, time for another passive income update!  Our passive income streams saw healthy growth in November 2017.  While total investment passive income continued to rise, the main culprit for our increasing stream is the incredible growth of our cryptocurrency mining operation.  Let's break it down:Investing:  Our monthly passive income from investing increased 4% to $541.73 per month.  This is from Mr. DebtFree's continued ...

I remember when I graduated from college 4.5 years ago.  I had just enough money saved up to move from Montana to the Pacific Northwest and rent a house close to my work.  After the first and last month's payments and security deposit I looked at my bank account and realized I had absolutely nothing left.  At the time I was worth about -$13,000 dollars.I distinctly remember sitting on the ...
