January was a laid-back month for our family aside from the Chief’s playoff run, .  The weather has been fairly cold with occasional snow and ice so we have spent a lot of time indoors.  We pass the time inside by working out in our home gym, playing board games and making delicious home made … Continue reading "January Financial Update" The post January Financial Update appeared first on Kansas City ...

In 2019 we achieved a long time goal, financial independence!! 2019 was a great financial year for our family.  Each year during our annual financial planning sessions, we set the plan for our finances.  After looking at our expected income and expenses, we set up ourselves up to hit a 75% savings rate.  We use … Continue reading "A Look Back at 2019" The post A Look Back at 2019 appeared ...

I get a kick at work of bragging on our frugal wins.  We are so different than most people about our priorities and how we spend our money that many can’t believe some of the things we do.  We strive to keep our expenses down and it has become a game to see how little … Continue reading "Yep, We Buy Used Shoes Online" The post Yep, We Buy Used Shoes ...

Happy holidays!  We have had a great December and we were able to spend a lot of time with family.   My wife’s family now resides in Georgia, so we made a trip to visit the in-law’s for the holiday break.  The drive is fourteen hours, so we took the trip out in two stages.

Throughout my career each time I received a windfall, mainly in the form of annual bonuses, I have either saved the entirety of that windfall or paid down debt. I have always been able to resist the urge to splurge on expensive items with these influxes of cash.   Last March when my annual bonus … Continue reading "“Life Changing Money”" The post “Life Changing Money” appeared first on Kansas City ...

November has been super busy for our family.  This time of the year means that I spend several weekends in the woods for Fall hunting and camping in our trusty pop-up camper.  With those weekends away from home, the time I do have is taken up with family duties. It seems like something is always … Continue reading "November Financial Update" The post November Financial Update appeared first on Kansas City ...

This is my favorite time of each year.  The cool evenings and mornings and the mild daytime temperatures are perfect for getting out and enjoying the outdoors.  We had the first snow fall of the year last week.  Thankfully it was only a dusting but the roads were icy. I … Continue reading "October financial Update" The post October financial Update appeared first on Kansas City ...
