We can't afford happiness. . .
Because it's priceless. We live in a society that normalizes excessive spending and accumulating debt, yet ignores the stress and anxiety that accompanies it. We're not living, we're "existing." That's why I started this website. Using my own journey to financial freedom, I'll share all of the wise spending habits and effective budgeting solutions I learn along the way. The frugal lifestyle teaches us to live in the moment, making the most out what we have, and embracing daily experiences. Let's make a vow to start saving, sticking to a healthy budget, and investing in our well-being, one day at a time.

Remember when you were a kid, that time you asked your parents, “Can I drive?” Their answer was the obvious, “No.” (Or a loud, obnoxious laughter in place of an answer, if you had a dad like mine.) Although hurtful, receiving a “no” was actually a good thing. Our parents, as harsh as as their […]
Many people brush off depression as if it’s something you can just “get over.” While a physical injury or illness is treated with the utmost care and attention, it’s sad that something as detrimental as mental health is often overlooked. Here’s the truth: Depression is an illness. It doesn’t discriminate It’s unpredictable It’s real Ranging from […]
Out of all the trees in Eden, hundreds, possibly thousands of them, Adam and Eve chose to eat apples from the one they were instructed not to touch. . .sounds pretty foolish, right? I mean, what was so alluring about that particular tree? Or was it even the tree at all? Reminiscing on my […]
