I am on a mission to practice contentment and to live within our physical and financial means in order to save money and stay out of debt. If you are trying to get out of debt or just stay out of debt in this crazy money-guzzling world then stick with me.
Minimalism was really good in principle because it helped shift my thinking from wanting bigger and better all the time and made me extremely aware of the things I didn’t need in life that I always thought I did.
BUT minimalism didn’t change our families personal finance or overspending issues.
We bought fewer items of clothing and furniture, but the few items we did buy were more than we could afford. We overspent on groceries, convenience food, eating out and going on holidays. All these things we didn’t plan very well for.
I’m sharing now how I use ALL the skills I’ve learnt as a minimalist and putting them into practice in our families personal finances. I’ve learnt how bad my self-discipline can be and how much I can achieve when I have a plan and a goal.
