Hello all you Money Monsters!  Mrs. Money Monster here to introduce a weekly installment to our blog…the Hump Day Headlines!  The Hump Day Headlines has been developed to give our readers an inside look at just how we’re trimming the daily fat on our budget in order to hit the early retirement road through Intelligent [...]

It’s November and we’ve officially hammered the final nail into the coffin of Halloween 2015.  It’s time to start thinking about buying gifts for all of our beloved family and friends!  Should I go for the Norelco beard trimmer for Mr. Money Monster?  Or, should I opt for a new nine iron so he can [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
