Kathleen’s note: This is a new series on Stacking Benjamins. We asked people to tell us their story in our email series (if you’re not signed up, you can do that right here), and we’re featuring those stories here. Here’s why Lee stacks Benjamins.
Lee Huffman from Bald Finance Saves Ruthlessly to Splurge on Travel
To me, money has always been about choices. I am frugal with things I don’t care about, so that I can splurge on the things that I do care about. I’d rather pay a little extra for something of quality that will last forever, than save a few dollars, but have to replace the item pretty quickly. We travel a lot, so we don’t generally dine out when at home; instead we cook meals when not traveling so we can enjoy and explore without guilt as we travel the world.
