What Does Financial Freedom Look Like to You?

Financial freedom sounds like such an amazing thing, and is something I definitely strive for not only yearly but daily as well. I always look for that coupon or bargain that would make my family happy and help as well. However, for me, financial freedom isn’t just about saving money. It’s about one day not needing to worry if i decide to buy the $10 toilet paper.

Financial freedom means not having to count bills. I currently do what I can to count to the very last dollar when it  comes to bills, and usually if Big Chewy and I have $35 after phone, storage, rent, Netflix and Hulu and electric bills, it means we had a really, really good month. I’m working on prepaying some bills with my financial aid, since I go to school.

 

Financial freedom means giving Baby Chewy the best. I would love to send Baby Chewy to private school when he gets to high school so that he can have the best education, and by then the goal is that he would have had enough time for us all to work with the A.D.H.D. he has been diagnosed with so that he could operate in an environment like that. With this I am hoping he can be in karate and some other fun activities that we are going to try and get him involved in this year so that he has that outlet that an A.D.H.D. child needs.

 

The freedom to have a car. Here’s a funny story. We don’t have a vehicle. The end. Okay, maybe it’s not that funny, but it’s way true. We do not have a car. I can’t drive due to some PTSD things that my family claims is nonexistent, but we also can’t afford a vehicle, or gas for said vehicle. So, instead, we take the bus. Luckily we are saving the planet by doing this, but it still sucks all the same.
