‘Life Design’ is something we’ve mentioned in a few posts now. But what do we mean?  Since we started this journey, we have hugely improved our lives in a lot of different areas. This hasn’t happened by luck. It has been a process of research, planning and execution.

We decided to forge our own way of doing things by keeping our finances separate.  The accepted norm for couples is to merge finances, particularly when you own a house together as we do. In our […] The post Why We Keep Our Finances Separate appeared first on A Way to Less. ...

In March we produced our first ever monthly spending report. Here is our second!  Despite going away this month we have managed to stay very close to our March spending amount.

What is the 4% Rule? The 4% rule was created based on historical market returns data.
