In the personal finance world, there are two school of thoughts when it comes to living within your means. You can either spend less than you earn, or earn more than you spend. I believe that life is meant to be enjoyed and frugality will only take you so far. For as much as you can try to trim the fat and cut down on your expenses, you will still need to eat, have a home, commute to work and buy clothes, and you will get to a point where you can’t make more cuts because you are already on a bare bones budget.
My parents often told me, “Major in whatever makes you happy.” They never pushed me to go towards any particular profession like many parents do, and I was pretty much left to my own devices to choose a major and a career.

Happy Weekend Friends! Earlier today, J and I went to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins, ride the hay-ride, listen to some live country music, and see some cute farm animals. We also tried to not stand out like sore thumbs because we’re a couple in our 30s with no young children but adults need pumpkins to carve too right? :P Tonight we’re going to go out for a romantic crab dinner to celebrate our anniversary because we’re one of those lame couples that still celebrate monthly anniversaries! :)

Thinking back to my younger days, I remember many adults who insisted on doing certain things themselves instead of paying someone else to do it. I remember many conversations where a family member or friend explained to one of my parents that they had replaced a window, built their own shed, or even fixed the family vehicle transmission. At the time, I just thought it was how folks lived their lives…it was normal.
Happy Saturday everyone! It has been a crazy week trying to catch up from being at FinCon last week. We have a full weekend this weekend as we’re getting ready for the middle little Frugal Rule to turn four on Tuesday (my word where does time go?) We’ve been a bit negligent in shopping for him, so we need to take care of that this weekend as well as getting ready for some family to visit next week to help us celebrate. We’re also bottling our second homebrew this weekend which is a Coconut Brown Ale.
