My frugal act this week

I did something that broke my heart last week. I canceled my New Yorker subscription. After three years of enjoying the New Yorker every week, I bid my subscription adieu. I know this is a small step in the scheme of things but I have to start somewhere. It is really about the discipline. I can live without it. When I’m debt free I will re-subscribe, but for the time being I have a goal. Goodbye New Yorker. You will be missed.

Why this blog?

I decided to start this blog to document the journey of my financial awakening and my attempts to pay off debt, build an emergency fund, save for retirement, while keeping my sanity. The road is long and bumpy but I’m willing to embrace it. I need all the help and support out there.
