About: To start with, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a mom to two boys and a daughter. My husband and I came to America in our twenties and together we have been blessed with opportunities. I came with 2 suit cases, $200, lots of wisdom, hope, vision and dreams. He also had 2 suit cases, although more money; $500 that he borrowed and had to pay back.
Through this blog, I hope to grow and learn with you through my experiences, written literature, tried/true ideas and…maybe some experiments :-). I promise you no one will get in trouble 🙂 . I will share some of our parenting tips and ideas as we raise our kids and teach them how to make money work for them. Through this experiences, we can face the challenges that confront our generation, change the negative perspective about money, rewrite our stories and spread the message that financial liberty is for everyone. Come along and lets journey to ABUNDANCE with LITTLE.

This site was inspired by my family’s journey to live life to the fullest on less. But what does that look like? It involves budgeting and meal planning, a little minimalism, a strong backbone, and a lot of faith. Learn more ►

We are looking to help others on their path to financial freedom and are here to show there is no cookie cutter way to FI. We are valuists and focus on being mindful, minimalist, and frugal. A happy life does not have to be an expensive life. Learn more ►
I started writing my blog months before I finally published it on September 1, 2018. After discovering the FIRE movement, I read numerous blogs and loved them, but I couldn’t find any written by single woman. It seemed like everyone was married and/or worked in tech and that didn’t represent me.
Even though I found my favorite blogs incredibly informative and so valuable, I knew others could identify with me and I wanted to write for them. The post here embodies my thoughts, feelings, and experiences around the time I started this blog. The responses I received assured me I was not alone in this struggle and that plenty more shared my thoughts and feelings. Learn more ►

One of Afford Anything’s core philosophies is that you should experience adventure at every stage of life, rather than defer happiness until the end. You should enjoy mini-retirements throughout your life; treating work and life like an interval race. You should embark on your epic travels today, while — behind the scenes — you simultaneously lay the groundwork for a permanent escape. Learn more ►
Welcome to A Way to Less! We are a professional couple in our late 20’s / early 30’s. We live in northern England, UK. Having been avid readers of various other FIRE/travel related blogs we wanted to document our own journey. Reading other blogs has taught us a lot and we see this as our opportunity to give back to the community! We currently work full time as a Chartered Engineer and a music teacher. Our interests include travel, food, sport, music, education and of course personal finance! It is very important to us that these interests are pursued alongside saving for FIRE. They must not be sacrificed along the way! We have reasonably paid professional careers and realise that this puts us in a much better position than many in society. However, we want to show that FIRE is possible while on much more ‘typical’ wages. In fact, we believe that no matter what your financial position, changes can be made in order to improve your outlook for the better. Learn more ►
