#WINNINGWILLAMS - Big changes!!
« on: February 21, 2015, 04:46:59 PM »
A little over a year ago my wife and I found out about Mustachianism. While loving the principals, we were reluctant to make the BIG changes that can really have a compounding impact. But in the last month...

  • Wife got a nice job, for an awesome company, with a nice pay raise.
  • We rented out our oversized house (recently paid off in full), and found an awesome apartment truly right next door to her new job.
  • Meanwhile, that also reduced my car clown commute in more than half.
  • Downsizing meant we got rid of lots of extra junk, and we were able to donate many items to those who could really use it.
  • This morning we sold her Jeep :) Leaving us with one Camry, nearly 150K miles and going strong!
  • Also, we are focusing on improved health and re-aligning eating habits, exercise (half-marathon in the future), etc.
Feels great to implement something we probably wouldn't have done without this site and community! Without going to the calculations, our already high (55%+) savings rate will increase even further! Hello FIRE even sooner!
