The Little Red Journal began as as a place for me to write, then evolved as I ventured into veganism, minimalism, and finally, financial savviness and debt payoff. After regaining my health with a plant-based diet, I turned my attention to my husband's student debt. We paid off $17,000 in student debt in less than 18 months in April 2014, then found out that June that we were expecting our first baby. Within 7 months, we saved $16,000 to purchase our first home.

Join us as we continue our journey by applying minimalism to our everyday lives, keep a close eye on our budget, and share what we've learned along the way!

What are the benefits of minimalism and budgeting?
  • Clarity—Define your personal goals and understand what you want from your life.
  • Less stress—Reduce the time you spend shopping, laundering, and cleaning by owning less possessions.
  • Connectivity—Spend more time with your partner, children, or close friends and family.
  • Freedom—Lift the financial and emotional burdens from your shoulders by eliminating the debt in your life.
  • Abundance—Find more money and stretch your dollars by evaluating transactions and spending more consciously.

Here are some posts to inspire you to being your own journey.

Thanks for visiting and best of luck in your own journey!
