The single most positive result of my renewed practice of blogging has been my ability to reconnect with my core values. The combination of regular, reflective writing and public transparency motivates me to figure out what really matters to my life and hold myself accountable for those priorities. My biggest financial goal for 2019 is … Continue reading 2019 Financial Goal: Aligning My Spending with My Values ...

I love reading. I’ve always known that I wanted to raise my children to be readers. It’s a great frugal form of entertainment, and the most critical skill for success in school.  In my career as a high school English teacher, I have helped convert hundreds of reluctant, phone-addicted high schoolers into teens who voluntarily … Continue reading Frugal Family Fun: Reading at Bedtime (or Anytime) ...

Perhaps you noticed that the number at the top of our debt thermometer increased from $30,956 to $36,033.78 (or maybe you didn’t, but I bet you looked now!). No, I didn’t suddenly charge up another $5000 in credit card debt when I was playing the balance transfer game (again, super not recommended for novices who … Continue reading The Value of Playing Mindgames with Yourself ...

This is the first picture of Min and I after we were officially married in Seoul and registered at the U.S. Embassy, although we had the ceremony three days later.  Tomorrow is our ninth wedding anniversary.  While we probably won’t do anything traditionally anniversary-ish (like get each other presents or go out to dinner), we … Continue reading Nine Lessons Learned in Nine Years of Marriage ...

New Year’s offers a great moment for many of us to set intentions (or resolutions) for the year to come. One of the writers that introduced me to modern minimalism and simplicity through his website Zen Habits, Leo Babauta, wrote about New Year’s being a blank slate. Every year, I reflect on my progress of … Continue reading Blogging Goals (or is it Anti-Goals?) in 2019 ...

Happy New Year! December has been a great month to focus on reflection and prepare for the new year through changing habits and clearing out old stuff that was holding us back.  We had a wonderful Christmas, though we struggled with terrible colds after!  We struggled to get Zero Spend Days this month (just a … Continue reading Debt Elimination Update: December (and 2018) ...
