“Hey guys! I’m David from the great state of Maryland/New York. I heard of these forums through The Frugal Gene and I’m really excited to be here! Also - I love… Legos?”
Got the boiler plate out of the way. Hey everyone! I’ve known about Rockstar Finance for awhile, but I didn’t know there was a forum that everyone used. I’ve been blogging at Zero Day Finance since January, 2017 but I’ve been on the road to FIRE for the past 3 years. Looking at all the comments here, I actually know a lot of you from Twitter.
To anyone who doesn’t know me or my site, I have a spending and budgeting problem. To help me reduce spending on useless stuff, I started the “Zero Day Challenge,” basically you track your spending and whenever you don’t spend any money, you mark it as a “zero day.” You see how many of these “zero days” you can get per week/month/year. I’ve been able to significantly decrease my spending this way, and I hope that others will join me on my path towards financial independence!
