My Favorite Articles
“Do you really want a new car or would you rather buy a used one and retire a year earlier?”

“Buy less, buy better. Notice the materiality of the things you use. Live in your body. Feel the ground when you walk. Chop wood, carry water.”
via Frugal Woods
“Frugality doesn’t happen to the exclusion of the rest of your life–it happens concurrent with your real, messy, wonderful life.”
“Every $1,000 that you can earn in a year is worth $25,000 of retirement savings. Someone who can figure out a way to make a measly $5,000 per year on the side can get away with having $125,000 less saved up.”

“Engage in work you’re passionate about. As my financial need to work has waned, my desire to work has grown. What’s made the difference? Today, I only take on work that truly interests me.”
My Favorite Podcast
An interview with author Cheryl Strayed on what it takes to go after what you want in life with tenacity.
Fun fact: Cheryl wrote one of my favorite books of all time called Tiny Beautiful Things. It features advice she has written to people over the years dealing with a wide variety of problems and obstacles in life. I recommend checking it out.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
