After a failed long term relationship, excessive weight gain, and many other issues, I got depressed. Even being a decently educated in finance, I still coped with my depression by spending money or by doing things that needed me to spend. Before breaking up, I was just getting my finance in order from my living expenses during college. My 
ex was careful with money, we rarely spent money on anything and we began sharing any cost, as our relationship grew older. After the breakup, I changed my wardrobe (because I did shed off few relationship babyfat) and also felt I needed it to “get out there”. I finally indulged in anything I wanted. I made excuse of dining pretty dates when in fact I was looking for friendship and also indulging my own foodie senses. I went out a lot too. Since I lived in downtown Washington DC it was not limited to just once a week but multiple times a week. During that time, I spent a lot, tried new things, met lot of people and made some good friends. But did I really need to spend and get myself into 27,619 dollars in debt to bounce back and get my life together?

What I want to do in this blog is share my mini personal experiment to do many things that I want, still enjoy my life and keep meaningful friendship while still saving money to be without debt.

  1. I used to live in DC for 7 years....there is so much to see and do there, but it doesn't come cheap! Well, at least the museums there are free...
