One of the biggest challenges to date within Mr. TFA and my relationship has been finances. Since day one, we have been partners in all aspects. Yet, regarding money, it has taken conscious effort to get on the same financial page.  Harkening back to when me and Mr. TFA first got together, we were just two pups frolicking in a field of daisies. We didn’t have a care in the ...

Here is another weekly installment of Living Frugally where I share my frugal accomplishments for the past week. Be sure to share your frugal successes in the comments! This week I listened to 2 audiobooks on tape and started a 3rd. All courtesy of my local library (and the Libby app).  Visited with an old friend for a couple hours, enjoying non-alcoholic beverages and chatting.  We had our media chest ...

Since the beginning of this year I have incorporated a new practice into my daily routine: a productivity journal. For someone like me, who thrives on accomplishment and checking things off, this has changed my life.  Why Did I Need a Productivity Journal? I adore the cheap thrill of completing a task. Completing the task is satisfying, as it’s one less thing to deal with. It usually makes my life ...

Welcome to our monthly spending report! We do spend money, and live a comfortable, privileged life. However, there is some intentionality in how we spend our money. The objective almost always is to spend money on things which enrich our lives. So I talk about money all the time, and clearly love budgeting. How does this play out in my real life?  Here’s a summary of what This Fascinating Adventure spent money ...

Recently, I encountered a person who did not know what an IRA was. I was working with a colleague who is about 55 years old. She is someone I met 11 years ago when I first entered my career. Though she is mildly strange (aren’t we all), I’ve always liked her. Our assignment was rather slow, and we got to chatting.  Throughout our conversation she said multiple times, “Now, if ...

Now, I do not write poetry, though I love to read it and see it performed. This post will be more of the free verse variety, which will hopefully leave you with all the feels. This love poem is about: Three Day Weekends.  Nuff said, amirite? Blog post done. Just joshin’—give me a chance to make you swoon with the practical, anecdotal logic of a smitten teenager who hopes this ...

Now hear me out! My frugal safety net includes my parents for reasons other than them paying any bills of mine. My parents haven’t handed me cash in over two weeks, so I’m not talking about cash assistance! I’m just kidding. I don’t remember the last time my parents handed me money, (except as a wedding gift).  My parents aren’t rich. My mom retired as a teacher, and my stepdad ...
