Becoming Financially Free Thanks to Mr. Money Mustache
« on: February 09, 2019, 12:21:52 PM »
I've become pretty good at working my way to financial freedom thanks to Mr. Money Mustache. I found his website just in time along with a few other major financial blogs that really opened my eyes towards debt, income, investing, and the road to financial freedom. Since then I'v made smarter decisions about my finances, and have gained some self control in relation to spending. Something funny though in which I originally did not set out to endure was frugality, simplicity, and my foot print on the earth. I think I have to give thanks to Mr. Money Mustache for that one. I can honestly say the more frugal and simplistic I become, the more I have been enjoying life and stressing less. I even bought a used Toyota Prius c (which I love) for the better gas milage and to help pollute less! I have learned to enjoy this life style so much that I have started blogging on my free time. Partially because I really enjoy writing and thinking, and partly because it keeps me busy on my free time! So thank you Mr. Money Mustache for opening my eyes!

It's funny, back when I didn't have a lot of savings, I had a spending problem.  I bought things that made it "look like" I was rich (nice cars, fancy home, etc...) but now that I actually "have" money in the bank, I feel much less desire to spend money on that stuff.

I heard it said once that you can look rich or be rich, but it costs too much money to do both.
