My husband and I love traveling and experiencing new adventures together! We both have good jobs (I am an attorney; he is a financial analyst), but we are by no means wealthy. However, most people tend to assume we make a lot more money than we actually do based upon our travels and hobbies. Our friends often ask us how we afford all the trips we go on and exciting weekend events we attend, so I decided to start this blog to explain how we experience Rich Living, with Less Spending. Everyone deserves to have fun in their lives, but fun is not always cheap. We find the best deals at the lowest prices so we can pack in as much fun into our lives as possible. That being said… we are not the backpacking, living off the kindness of others, and staying in hostels type people. Maybe we would have traveled that way if we met in college before we started our careers and our tolerance for discomfort decreased, who knows?!
Right now we balance our work life and play life by choosing several short vacations with one or two lengthy trips per year sprinkled in; this has allowed us to have short getaway weekends to cities such as Chicago, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Dallas, while also enjoying longer trips to locations such as Costa Rica, Honduras, and Greece. We go on at least one trip per month, sometimes more, and spend our weekends at home in Scottsdale, Arizona by golfing, going to concerts, attending countless music and food festivals, and so much more. We have had so many great experiences and still have money in the bank. Stay tuned to learn how to keep up with the Joneses without spending like the Joneses!
