Costco – our favorite bulk money saver for food!

Costco – our favorite bulk money saver for food!

On Christmas Eve, we went to Costco, in an effort to start our year off right in terms of savings. Happy holidays for savings! I’d say Costco is great for non-perishables that you don’t need to put in the fridge. Even some perishables, like cakes and pies are very cheap and some meat, like the rotisserie chicken and marinated chicken wings are a really good deal. For perishables such as the cakes or 5 pound chicken wings, I usually separate…

Spend less than 2 hours and $40 making your entire week’s meals

Spend less than 2 hours and $40 making your entire week’s meals

I bet if you made your own meals at home in one go, you’d not only save on dollars, you’d save a ridiculous amount of time too. I take 2 hours to meal prep for the week, so that comes out to 17 minutes a day I “spend” on making food.

Have you ever done the math on how much drinking cheaper coffee will save you over the long term? It’s mind boggling. If you are 22, and you drink coffee 7 days a week, it will cost you 583K if you plan to retire at 65.  I like spreadsheets. They provide crystal clear answers. So, I made one on how much coffee costs me. A couple of years ago, I began thinking of financial transactions in my life through monthly cost,…

Birds of a feather, let’s reach Financial Independence together!

Birds of a feather, let’s reach Financial Independence together!

I remember the first time learning about Financial Independence, Retire Early (FIRE). My SO had just casually dropped that he wanted to retire in 10 years. “Say what?”, I said, as I looked back at him. Turns out he had just convinced his SO to FIRE. FIRE – Financial Independence, Retire Early No one had ever said anything like that to me in my life. Everyone just worked until 65. They worked hard, and they accumulated wealth, but there wasn’t…
