Minimalist Monday: Less Really is More (Get What You Want) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

My sister is my financial advisor. If you need to squeeze quarters out of pennies, Courtney knows how to do it. By looking at her year end account statement last year, she realized she could pay off all her student debt 6 years early by simply getting rid of cable TV for a year. She's that good.

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook the other day:

"Sometimes I really wish I could trade my life. Start somewhere new. Have that chance to do it all over again. But then I wonder if it would be worth it. If I would be doing it for the right reasons."
