Little People Wealth simplifies deals in order to save you money on everything! It also shows you how to diversify your income streams and manage your money wisely. Do you want to retire early, go on a vacation, pay down your debt, or another financial goal? The information I show you will allow you to have more money for the things you want simply by showing you how to spend less on the things that are not as important to you.
I grew up in a super thrifty family (oldest of 10!) so I learned from a very young age how to live below your means. For the first two years of my marriage our income was less than 10K. We have no debt except for our mortgage and student loans, which we are working hard to eliminate.
I started this blog in 2007 to keep track of my expenditures and was pleasantly surprised to read emails from other women who were inspired by reading my story. I began to focus on teaching others how to find deals, save money, and live the frugal life. At the time I was also working full time in Environmental Toxicology, but now I am a full time blogger and mother.
It was scary to drop to one income. I made more than two thirds of our families income at the time that I stopped working. My husband makes only 25K despite his masters degree because he works in a non-profit. A family of four living on $25,000 is hard at times, but it can be done! I never feel like we are missing out.
Spend small to live large. We save on the things that are easy to save on and on the things that are not as important to us. Doing this allows us to “live large”. We have money for vacations, retirement, and other things that are important to us. I can teach you how to do the same. If we can do it, anybody can!
