Our wedding day was beautiful, and we embraced a money-saving mindset and optimized almost everything. This set a strong foundation for starting our financial life together and more recently, getting on the same page regarding financial independence. For our 13th anniversary, I’d love to share our 10 frugal wedding ideas.
Laura has taken several work breaks and will be taking another in September. These works breaks along with building up multiple income streams allow her to live a location flexible lifestyle.
When we first learned about financial independence, we started to analyze our spending. One of the first things that we realized was that we spent way too much on groceries.

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the layout and features of our non-budget campervan. This post is all about the costs.

Andrew and his family have designed their lives over the past ten years. They started out with road-schooling. Then, Andrew took a sabbatical so they could world-school their kids.

Despite being personal finance enthusiasts, we did NOT do a budget campervan build. We are strong believers in intentional spending. This means that we are happy to splurge on things that will add value and joy to our lives (like a campervan). And, we cut costs on the things that don’t. In this post, learn more about the layout and features of our NON-budget campervan.
