Discover the ways we have got out of student loan debt, moved across the country without an income for 3 months, able to be a 1 income household, and still love a life of traveling! Here you will find tips and tricks to reduce your rent or mortgage to afford a life you want!
Most people have only been hit by one of these items, but if you are like us. We moved from the east coast to the west coast this year. We have been hit by both inflation and a higher cost of living, but I am not allowing it to affect my attitude. Okay, maybe for about two months and then I realized I am going back to what I know and getting the best deals I know how from my real experience from working in grocery retail for 10 + years.
First, I want to start off we paid off our home, which we do not live the traditional lifestyle most American live. I fully believe that a home is where you make it. A home is something that keeps a roof over your head, food is served, and warmth is all around you with love. We live tiny in a 32 foot Thor Four Winds RV. We bought the RV for $47,000 and the loan we took out was for $50,000 in March 2019 and paid it off 100% by May 2021. Our income was under six figures as I was a stay at home mom, but this really doesn’t matter because we made the biggest dent in our loan when we made under six figures than we did when both my husband and I were working and we were making well over six figures. So if you are on the edge of should I pay off my home fast even though I “don’t make a lot of money” yes, why yes you should! You then have so much freedom with what you can do with your money. You can save it. You can give it. You can spend it. You can invest it. It is amazing!
