Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, 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 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.

    Travelling is now faster and more affordable before people had to take days traveling to reach the desired location, now only a matter of hours to get where we want.

      Very true… which is why when people say they’d LIKE to travel but can’t do it because of money, I want to squeal. 🙂 You don’t need thousands to travel, you just have to give up some luxuries.
