One major cause of anxiety in my life and I’m sure most others is Money. My husband and I work full-time and own a small home in the suburbs. We do not spend a lot on frivolous things but we just can’t ever seem to get ahead. We both save money each month from our paychecks and I also invest a little in the stock market. When an unexpected expense comes along though, like needing new garage doors, we are hurled into a 6 month-long deficit.
Last year we started using the snowball system with our credit cards and managed to pay off 2 low balanced cards with a total of $6000 on them. I’ve also started looking into some the minimalist lifestyles. What methods are you using? Have you read any books that have really helped you reach financial freedom?
