Today we’re digging into how to live well and enjoy this summer without breaking your budget!
Saving money can be a smart and practical move when it comes to your finances. Sometimes though, you can get caught up with savings that it becomes your goal.
In the personal finance space and in particular with the financial independence community, there’s a segment that is intensely focused on how cheap they’re living.
They spend only $25,000 year or save half or more of their income.
First off, I think it’s commendable to look at ways to save. You want your hard-earned money o go further. But I think it misses the point of it all.
Instead of focusing on living cheaply, I think it’s more enjoyable and sustainable to live well.
As parents, we want to enjoy the time we have now with our kids. We can’t get that time back with them.
While working towards financial freedom does take getting our numbers into a good spot, it’s really to serve the bigger goals, savor the more precious resource time.
So today we’re digging into ways we can find that balance that is right for us and whatever season of life we’re in.
