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.

    All right you need to watch Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries all on Netflix. It’s an Aussie murder mystery show, set in the 1920’s.

    I try not to bingewatch, but some shows are so awesome! My most recent discovery is Ripper Street – I’ve only seen a few episodes so far but I like it a lot. It’s a bit bloody, but if you’re watching Game of Thrones, it can’t get any more bloody/death than that.

      @Corianne: I will take a look at it. If it’s murder mystery, fashion or food, I’d be interested.
