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.

  1. Mochi & Macarons

    Wow Dish sounds interesting. I mostly rent or buy shows on iTunes….

  2. The Asian Pear @ Blogspot

    Awesome Notes is awesome.  l love using it as well.

    I use social website apps like Pinterest, Blogger, Livejournal and LinkedIn.

    I like using GoogleTranslate & Wikipedia as info/resource apps. I also like Toshl for finance tracking.

    Onavo – mobile data saver that compresses your data.

    Converter+ – For conversions including currency.

    Find iphone – in case I misplace or lose my phone, I can GPS it or make it ring.

    Gas Canada – Find out what gas prices will be tomorrow.

    All free above except for Awesome Notes.

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      Onavo sounds interesting like the Phillips Battery app

    EverNote – I like how you can also create notebooks with pictures, e.g. I’ll take pictures of stuff I see in magazines like beauty or fashion inspiration.

    Flashlight – super bright white light, comes in handy.

    Beejive – chatting app that’s set up like text msging, useful if you’re texting alot w/the same person but don’t wanna get charged for texts.

    Scoutmob – like a spontaneous Groupon that let’s you find restaurants on the fly that give you 50% off the check (usually maxed at $15 or $20 discount).

    eBay – lets you check your auctions on the go.

    OpenTable – self-explanatory.

    All free!!!

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      I thought about EverNote but I don’t like how I have to sign in to use it. I thought it would be a software or an app like Picasa without any Internet required.
      Beejive — is that the same concept as iPhone 4s iMessage? I blocked all texting on my phone but I still use iMessage
      I will check out Flashlight!!

      1. jeweliette23

         I think Beejive is the same concept, but you have to link one of your chatting apps, like I use my Gchat.

          Oh I see 🙂
