Y'all..it's finally happened. I have enough money in the bank to the point I can finally feel comfortable. It took me 2 years of super frugal and minimal living to do it but y'all know what ? I don't regret my decision at all. For the first time in 10 years, I have something for retirement and savings. After working my tail off and never having anyting to show for it in my marriage, other than debt and crap around the house, it's nice.
I will continue my frugal/minimal ways because life is really easy this way. I have no regrets and can breathe a little bit more.
So don't give up!!!
