I’ve been tracking my income and expenses online since I initiated this blog back in early 2011. I do this for a couple of reasons.
First, I want to prove to the world that it’s indeed possible to become financially independent at a relatively young age even if you don’t make a lot of money. I don’t make a six-figure income. I never have and I probably never will. But it’s not necessary. Often, people focus on income too much. Expenses are just as important because if you make $200,000 per year, but spend $190,000 of it you’ll never become financially independent.
