Arizona Road Trip Review: The Grand Canyon and More!

I don’t think D can remember a time that I didn’t talk about how badly I wanted to go to Arizona. I spoke about it constantly and would browse through pictures of the sights I wanted to see. It took years for us to finally plan the trip. We always put it off, it was never the right time or the expense would be too high. All that changed when we discovered travel hacking. Check out our post How we booked a week long trip to Arizona for $34 for our family of 3 to see how we travel hacked this trip. Now its time for the trip’s review post. This post will take you through a full review of Arizona and the sights we saw. Surprisingly enough, it took me a long time to get this review together, we did a lot in a short period of time.

4 reasons we missed our 2018 savings goal and why 2019 will be different.

When we introduced ourselves and the start of this blog we mentioned that we would document our mistakes… well here is our first one. And it was a rather big one. At the end of 2017, we started our FI journey and went through our budget and thought we can easily cut back and increase …

Reluctant to FI

The day D came home spewing what he learned about this concept called Financial Independence I brushed him off thinking “here we go again.” See, D has always looked for a different way, he always wanted more, he always wanted a way to make money that wasn’t through traditional means. Clearly, D seems much more ambitious …
