Hi, welcome to Luxuriously Frugal!
Why I blog?
I have two rather conflicting passions: Saving and Shopping.
I want to save enough to reach financial independence at a relatively young age, but I also love, I mean LOVE, buying luxury clothing items. The rule 101 of achieving financial independence is saving aggressively and spending on needs not on wants. Luxury items, no matter how we twist them, are far from being needs. I have always wondered: Do I have to sacrifice savings for luxury or sacrifice luxury for savings? Can I have both?
I started my luxuriously frugal journey to financial independence (FI) in Dec 2012, planning to reach FI in Dec 2022. Two years later (Dec 2014), I have met all my savings targets and bought more luxury items than I have ever done in the first ten years of my working life. Along the way, I have found so many useful information, blogs, sites, and tools that help me finding the peace between saving and shopping. More importantly, I start to realize that a frugal mindset can provide a sustainable luxury living.
LuxuriouslyFrugal.com is thus created to log and share my findings and thoughts on the journey to achieve FI and build a fabulous closet! Want to come along! Love to hear your story (please leave a comment below or contact me here)!
Thank you so much for reading!
