15+ Sustainable Household Swaps

15+ Sustainable Household Swaps You Can Make to Save $20,000

I recently moved into an apartment after spending about two years living first at my parents’ house and then in my car. When I left my last apartment I sold anything and everything I could. I didn’t need it anymore, why hold onto it?

Gurus get away with selling you courses and classes for hundreds of dollars while accountants make bank during tax season simply because most of us don’t understand our financial system. No matter where you’re at in your personal finance journey, the best (and arguably only) personal finance book you need to read this year is: Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin.
