Are you happy? Not this moment, but in general? Are you sure you are? Oh, you said you were. Sorry. Well if you aren’t happy, maybe you can do something about that. Maybe not. I’m the Captain of this vinegar jar and would like to share what has helped me over the past not so many months. After tripping over a site called mrmoneymustach.com and watching the Minimalism documentary, I realized things could be a bit better. Everything these guys talked about made so much sense. They figured out the secrets to life that most don’t discover until they have been worked ragged into their 70s and it’s hard to even say that those old timers even realize it then. My wife and I have been living relatively frugally on and off for about ten years, but these two resources really helped lock it into gear.
What if you knew that there were options to life that didn’t include working all week to pay off debt? You could do whatever the hell you wanted to every day. What if you weren’t stuck making money for someone else or some entity that’s trying to keep shareholders happy. This isn’t something that just happens but it’s clear that it CAN happen if you work at it.
Our family is not there, or really even very close, but we have made a lot of steps in the right direction in the past few months and things are looking promising right now.
We currently live in a small suburb in western NY with two kids – Darth Vader and Baby Cat. I’m the Captain of the Jar and my sweet wife will introduce herself here at some point.
Some things that we would like to share on these pages are the steps we took to save and make money, how to start getting rid of shit you don’t need and try to stop buying shit you think you need, and explain how to destroy barriers that are stopping you from gaining everything you really want.
