Financial Fails Friday: Week 1!

All over the FI space, I have noticed a trend of “Frugal Friday” posts where you highlight some especially frugal decisions that you made throughout the week that helps keep you on track towards your goal of financial independence.

I think this is a great idea, as it encourages people to stick to their goals, and gives creative ways they may not have thought of to save money.

But I wanted to develop a different take on this.

I find that no matter how much I try to save, and how much I plan … something happens.

These are the things I’m hoping to highlight every week.

Those speed bumps that we all meet that make it hard to keep on track and keep focused, but they happen to all of us.

Of course, I would love to hear any of the fails you’ve had in your life over the past week on your journey in the comments below!

With that said, if there’s anything you want added to the overviews or any suggestions for changes I could make to make sure the posts are easily readable let me know.

So let’s get into my first financials back!
