How I’ve Saved Almost $5,000 From Not Buying Stuff

26th January 2017

A couple months ago, I watched a documentary called The Minimalists. 

I wasn’t expecting it to inspire and motivate me as much as it did. Immediately after watching the film, I decided that I wanted to get out of consumerism and become more responsible for my purchasing decisions.

I got serious about saving money. The first step was to look at where my money was going. Then I set a goal. I had a goal to get to $5,000, and now that I’m almost there, my goal is to get to $10,000. Setting up goals makes this process a lot more fun. It ends up being somewhat of a game or a challenge, which I love.

I’m going to include what I did to cut spending and save money, how much it will save my yearly, and what you can do instead to replace the item.

How My Sister Went From $0 Affiliate Income to $50,000+ A Month

23rd January 2017

Just 1 month ago, I started an online course on affiliate marketing. Since incorporating the tactics of the course, I’ve made over $800. While that may not seem like a lot compared to others, that $800 was passive income that only required me to talk about things I love, and includes a few links here and there. While just starting this post, I got a notification saying that I made $10 from someone signing up for an app that I use daily to save money.

I was making money on my blog, but never from affiliate marketing. I never knew how important affiliate marketing is until a few months ago when I noticed my sister was doubling her income each month by talking about products she loved.

Though my blog doesn’t have quite the audience size of my sisters, I am still able to make a comfortable income to work full-time at home, while simultaneously talking about products I love using.

If you haven’t started a blog yet, learn how to below.
