Looking for Specific Blogs to Inspire/ Encourage
« on: October 10, 2016, 05:23:13 PM »
Over the years my wife has slowly become more conservative with money. This was more out of necessity and less out of a desire to be frugal. Recently we were having a discussion about our finances and she made it clear that she does not think we could cut any fat out of our current budget. I laughed and challenged her to do a little reading from other people's perspective and not just mine.

I turned her on to the Frugalwoods, Millionaire Educator, and Radical Personal Finance (the podcast episode on opportunity cost). Long story short, she is starting to see the light. She is still on the fence but we are having some great conversations.

One of the hurdles she has is that we are a family with three kids. She asked me if there was a blog similar to the others I have shown her but where they have a larger family. You all are such a well read group and full of resources. Has anyone come across a blog of a larger family walking the mustachian life? Thanks!

I'm not one of his readers, but Root of Good has 3 kids, and retired at age 33.

Well, The Prudent Homemaker has 8 children. She came to frugality from extreme financial hardship and isn't interested in getting rich.  However, she knows a lot about frugality. The tone is very sweet.

Awesome! Thanks! These are perfect. My wife already spent an hour reading them. I'm also seeing some little changes in her thinking already.  Much appreciated!

FI Footer has one, but lately he's gone off the deep end with talks of mining.

I enjoy Mr. Take Escapes. He has two children.

There's also two kids at Physician On Fire.

I think Jim as at least three kids.
