Ask Sherry: A cheap thing that makes me happy…

You asked, and I am answering every Friday once I have enough questions!

What is something inexpensive that makes you happy?


A cup of tea in the morning. I need it. A great cup of tea.

I also love a great book. When an unexpected book I start reading, ends up being such a page turner, it makes my day. Like REALLY MAKES IT.

Honourable mentions off the top of my head of books that surprised me as being funny, poignant page turners:

A great talk with a great friend that goes on for hours… that really cheers my heart up.

I also very much love it when Little Bun runs (unprompted) and hugs or kisses me, or tells me he loves me. That.. you have no idea. It really just makes my heart sing.

Other inexpensive thrills are when things just go right. When my partner is happy, Little Bun is being super sweet and I just have peace in my heart.

How do you clean your leather leggings?

I wipe them down like any other leather good with leather cleaner, then conditioner. You can’t really “clean” leather leggings…..

Still have a burning question?

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I buy cheap kindle books for free to $2.99 (regular email from bookhub). Also finding a gorgeous expensive art or design book at the library (right now I have one on Issey Miyake).
