Sunday is for Sharing: Volume 5


Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week. 

This week features a couple who quit their day jobs to live and travel full time in a van, a retail worker who maxes out her Roth IRA on a $20,000 yearly income, and much more. Enjoy!

My Favorite Video

Joe and Emilie both left well-established jobs to live full time in a Mercedes Sprinter van with their dog and travel around the country. I love how simple this couple lives and how everything they need to be happy fits neatly inside a van.
