Patience please! Undergoing a dramatic change on a whim.


Please don’t be alarmed. I’m splitting the original blog into two parts as I had originally intended, now that I’ve FINALLY (after a year and a few months) dug down deep inside, and found the perfect name to describe my blog.

Save. Spend. Splurge.

Save your money first.

Spend it on what you need.

Splurge on what you love.

It sounds like a YOLO blog right? Not really.

I’m advocating the idea (as I always have) to save your money to spend it where YOU want to spend it, not where someone else does.

Or to not spend it at all.

Anyway, expect a blog overhaul coming up.

I’m sorry, but better late than never (especially if I start building a cache of thousands of posts).

New RSS Feed URL:

I should have ported everything over correctly. *fingers crossed*

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.

    So are you splitting your blog into two blogs or retiring the old one? Will this be one only to read?

    1. Mochi & Macarons

      This will be the only one to read. The other one will just be for the budgeting tool.
