I have to pop in to give a good update to the bootcamp regarding some of my concerns from the last post.

Today, 9/18/18 marks day number 1 of my Coding Bootcamp. After work today I’ll be headed straight downtown to get started on my new career path.

Many know that there are 2 main ways to get to FIRE. Spend less and/or earn more. I’m here to talk to you today about frugality. We all can benefit from a little frugality… or maybe a lot of frugality for you, I don’t know. Managing and cutting costs in our lives is a very personalContinue reading ...
