Not long ago, I finished reading Your Money or Your Life by Vicky Robin and Joe Dominguez.

For years, I have read financial books.  Not sure how I missed this one.  The authors published it years ago.

These days, during times of high inflation, we need all the help we can get.  Like it or not, most of us need to figure out how to scale back.

Your Money or Your Life may help you figure out how to do just that.  I enjoyed the book and found it quite helpful.

One caveat.  The author quotes Paul Ehrlich several times.  I think it’s safe to ignore anything that professional doomer and gloomer says.  Remove the “end the world” negativity, and I believe you will find Your Money or Your Life super helpful.

If you prefer blogs over books, I also follow the posts of Mr. Money Mustache.  Sadly, he scatters profanity throughout his writings.  Still, when it comes to frugality, he says good stuff.  Like me, he loves bikes and almost hates cars.  I am prone to give a pass to anyone who loves bikes and hates cars.

Someone once said to me, it’s not how much money you make, it’s how much you keep.  I’m not sure I am 100% on board with that, but I can tell you this, when my wife and I were broke, frugality helped keep our heads above water.

If you need help figuring out how to live a more frugal life, Your Money or Your Life, or Mr. Money Mustache can help.


Almost every Saturday, I send out a Tip of the Week.  The tip of the week is usually something I have picked up along the way that may make your life a little easier.  If you would like to hear from me (almost) every Saturday, just go to the home page of my site and plug in your name and email.   You will also get a free digital copy of my book on learning Latin (and almost anything else).  Just go here:

If you want to buy the digital book instead (because you just feel like buying me a cup of coffee) go here:

If you are interested in learning Latin, you can go through the classes on my site 24/7.  I recommend the book Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.  If you tackle the book and find yourself bogged down, you may find the classes on my site helpful.  To join, just click here:

If you want a more professionally filmed experience, check out the best-selling DVD series: Visual Latin.

Or, if you want to skip Latin, and just jump right into learning English words from Latin and Greek roots, you may enjoy the series Word Up!  Warning.   Word Up! is a bit wacky.  You will learn a lot… but, you may find yourself rolling your eyes, too.
I teach other languages on my site, too.  The current schedule is here:
