The thing is: those things may appear bizarre to us, but it’s not bizarre to them. It’s a conscious choice they’ve made to become their best frugal selves. And for the record: we are all guilty of bizarre habits. Some people are crazy about folding clothing a certain way, or keeping their book collection meticulously alphabetized (in my youth, I also used to organize all my VHS tapes by production company. Suffice to say, no one could ever find anything but me) – and there’s honestly nothing wrong with that.
So really: we’re all a little weird. And that’s okay. I also do weird things, specifically around saving money and I welcome you to judge me because really, our oddities is what makes each of us special.
July wrapping up means summer is basically halfway done – depressing right?
The month was basically business as usual, although I saved a lot more because my girlfriend is across the country for the next 2 months on a summer gig, which means zero dating expenses. It’s bittersweet, I guess?
Overall, I spent $2095.69 this month for a solid 67.85% savings rate. Passive income for the month also hit an all-time high for me, which was great.
