Trying to be frugal in a city like Miami is tough. This is a blog for those of us who want to take control of our finances and stop spending mindlessly. My personal financial odyssey started late in life and I wish "I knew then..." and even now I wish I knew more! Applying mindfulness to every aspect of our lives is important, but this is my effort to bring mindfulness to the financial aspect of my life.

Basically your typical INTJ, weird, solitary, but happily married. My basic needs in life are love, choice, freedom and peace of mind. Most of the time I have all of these, so I consider myself a lucky, lucky woman!
