About: 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.

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.

The name’s Amanda Holden, but my pals call me Mandy, Mandicakes, Manderson Pooper, A.Hol (get it? like J.Lo but…grosser??) and—you guessed it—Dumpster Dog. Ahhhh yes, ol’ Dumpster Dog, that’s me. What you’re probably not thinking is: For a young and single working gal, that is one darling nickname!! It’s okay—I love it. The nickname took root during a eight-month stint where I didn’t buy food (see this post for the gruesome details) and it has really stuck, glued to me like day-old bean burrito guts on a Taco Bell wrapper. The easy fusion was surely thanks to my preference for Birkenstocks and half-eaten gyros over stilettos and grooming; creativity over tedium, always. This brand of scrappiness is the very essence of Dumpster Dog, and accordingly, the perfect name for my blog on money!
