Frugal living is everything
If you happen to follow me on YouTube then you know that I am pretty frugal. I’ve been living frugally and minimally since 2014 and couldn’t imagine living any other way. Frugal living and minimalism are at the very heart of everything that I do.
Throughout the years I’ve made several videos about my expenses and I am thrilled to say that I feel really good about it all. I am super mindful about how I spend my money and time and frugal living is my default.
I could talk about frugal living and its benefits all day every day without ever tiring of it. It’s something that I feel very strongly about. It’s my firm belief that frugal living could be of benefit to almost everyone, it’s just amazing!
My New York City budget of $1,300
In New York City my monthly budget was just $1,300 which is astounding considering that affordable rooms in New York City alone are around $1,500 per month. The cost of living in New York City is incredibly high and living there certainly isn’t cheap. However, I made it work and greatly enjoyed my time there.
Traveling the world for less than $1,000 per month? Yes!
I am currently traveling the world for less than $1,000 per month and I am having a blast. You see, I love frugal living and I also love a good challenge. When I don’t travel I am living out of a suitcase and a backpack.
When I first heard about shopping bans I was intrigued and figured it’s time to try it myself. Just to see what it’s like. I see my yearlong shopping ban as a challenge and experience and boy am I excited!
My yearlong shopping ban is going to start on October 1, 2018. Let’s freakin’ do this!
