Do You Take This Shoestring To Be Your Wedding Budget?  “I Do!” Well, we did it!  We got hitched and we are now officially Mr. and Mrs. Money Monster.  Tonight is the last night of our Vermont Honeymoon and I couldn’t be happier to be starting this blog post.  My apologies for being MIA the [...]

I am a firm believer in figuring out how to do everything in a less expensive (or no expense) way.  However, my frugality does have its freakin’ limits.  Last night, as I was trying to ignore the fact that I was shivering under 3 blankets, I decided that I cannot sacrifice my own physical comfort [...]

As you all know by now, Mr. Money Monster and I have committed ourselves to Financial Freedom through Intelligent Design within 5 years!  Obviously, if we’re going to be successful, we need a plethora of solid ideas for entertainment.  This means, we need YOUR help! The Situation We love coming up with things to do [...]

I grew up in a trailer and I am sitting here with a Master’s Degree right now.  And it only cost me $25,000.  So, why are so many people whining about the cost of college?  In my opinion, we as Americans have lost our ability to make intelligent, informed decisions.  I’m not saying that college [...]

If you buy into the American Dream of Consumerism, kids are going to rock your financial world.  Yes, childcare can sometimes put a major dent into your income.  But, even that can be handled less expensively with alternative options.  Remember, where there is a will, there IS a way.  If you live sensibly and offer [...]

You got it!  We sat down and ran our numbers.  We will be completely debt free, including both mortgages (we also have a rental house) in 2021! So, we won’t be 30 years old or anything, but we’ll still be relishing in the joy of being debt free at a significantly younger age than most [...]

One House, Two House, Red House, Blue House I LOVE houses!  There’s a very strong emotional reason for this that is explained here in my very first post.  When I met Mr. Money Monster two years ago, we lived two hours apart *GASP*.  It wasn’t ideal; however, Mr. Money Monster didn’t have any children and [...]

Yes, I said it!  And Yes, we did it!  We cut our cable cord on our road to financial freedom through frugality.  This is all part of our grand scheme to shake the shackles of American consumerism so that we can live a fabulous life on less. Thinking About Cutting The Cord…For Years Let me [...]

I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to any new people visiting and enjoying the blog.  We’d love for you to say hello in the comments! It’s no secret that I’m finally getting married this month!  Yay!  However, before I met Mr. Right, soon-to-be known as Mr. Mad Money Monster, I was living a [...]

October is Here! I just lit my Yankee Candle and opened a window to set the blogging mood.  I love Fall and everything that goes along with it.  I grew up, and still live in central Pennsylvania.  We get four seasons around these parts and I enjoy Fall more than any other.  October holds a [...]
