Don’t let boredom become an excuse to break your budget. Fun doesn’t have to come with a price tag or at the expense of your long-term financial goals.
It’s the small, intentional choices that really do make all the difference. As I’ve highlighted throughout this post, these seemingly marginal cost-saving techniques can help to save you thousands of dollars every year.
We cover how to save on Organic foods, name brand vs store brand, how to build a stockpile without breaking the bank, and how I grocery shop to feed my family of 7 on less than $200 per week.
Total cost of the truck: $14,250, not including the ticket I received while driving it.
I would love to go back and zip line for hours but that would be fairly expensive. What’s a frugal, thrill-seeking, soul to do then?
Based on my quick calculations, if we could save an additional $500 per month from here on out, we could not only lower the amount we need to save to reach FI by $150,000 – $171,000, but also shorten our time period to FI by about 1.5 years of our already aggressive goal of 9-10 years.
