I know there are some in the frugality community who will question every choice I've made here and I'm OK with that. I'm opening up my life to the public and I can take it if someone disagrees with my choices. I consider this a journey and I'm questioning these choices myself.
Hi! I’m Ms. Frugalette, a 45 year old single mom of a teen-aged daughter living in New England. I’m also a middle manager in the accounting department of a publicly-traded company where I’ve worked for almost 20 years. I’ve dabbled in frugal living at various times in my life but I really let lifestyle inflation get the best of me as I tried to provide a life for me and my daughter.
I’ve decided to get serious about pursuing FIRE (financial independence/retire early) because I’ve spent too much of my life working at a career I’ve never really loved. I have interests and hobbies that I’d love to have more time to pursue.
