Our oldest daughter has been invited to three birthday parties so far this school year. While it’s fun to celebrate turning a year older with friends, it can get expensive.
Before our mini-retirement, we were focused on building our finances. We were prepaying our mortgage, saving for vacations, contributing to a 401K, and building our emergency savings fund.

October has come and gone and we’ve only got two months of our challenge left! This month, we’ll look at our October spending and “new” purchases, as well as take a deep dive at the cost of me attending FinCon, the personal finance conference I spent 5 days at this month.
This past week was a crazy one. Chris traveled to Dallas, TX to attend FINCON. I stayed home with our three girls while still recovering from my sciatic nerve pain.
