I have added the 2019 edition to our Buy Nothing Challenge (BNC) pages.
We continue to be ecstatic to be able to report that thanks in part to the BNC, we paid off our mortgage and became debt free at the end of 2018!
Then in 2019 Bear and I both switched to working part-time, and we’re trying to see if we can make it on two part-time salaries, because instead of wanting more stuff, we wanted more time.
- Read the amazing book, Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez.
- Created Our Buy Nothing Challenge.
- Aimed for this goal: become debt free and have 3-6 month’s income in the bank.
- Reduced the amount of advertising we see.
- Got lucky with health insurance.
Neither Bear nor I come from wealthy families, nor do we make a lot of money, so we believe that you can do this too! We hope everyone finds more financial freedom so they can spend more time doing the things they love.
