Welcome to the Budget Life List!
“I can’t die now, there are so many places I haven’t explored yet!” is my one thought when I have a brush of panic and foreboding, like when experiencing turbulence on a plane or when I am getting chased by a dog while jogging. That may or may not have to do with why I have a deep underlying obsession for exploration. Fun Fact: Coronavirus did not improve that.
A caveat: I am a Park Ranger, not a psychologist. A psychologist may say that my extreme passion for exploration is normal. Or they may prescribe Vallum and say to follow up in a week. I guess well never know….
My goal for you and this site is to help you build your finances while maximizing what’s important and minimizing the “penny pinching”. What a weird saying? Why would anyone pinch a penny?
If you are wondering, “What the heck is a life list?” I got you! A life list is similar to a bucket list but without the death part. I may have ranted a bit about it but for good reason! My life list is where most of my Park Ranger income is funneled.
A Splash About Me
Personality tests frequently classify me as an extrovert but they are all lying because my default mode is introvert.
I can “switch” to an extrovert but if I have to interact with grumpy humans, I get drained.
Exploring and accomplish expeditions on my life list, which apart from saving money for expeditions, is what I am typically working on.
Outside of that, I am usually eating way too much Coldstone ice cream but it’s cool because I get it for free. If you like how “free” and “ice cream” sounds, I have a post for that!
Personal finance and how it relates to exploring profusely on a budget is the topic that is frequently, boarding on constantly, posted.
Here are the categories that I write about:
About Budget Life List
The BuLL, an abbreviation for Budget Life List (can you tell I work for the government 😬), is all about capturing the best financial resources to save frequently and explore profusely.
In the end, this site is all about the financial tools for living our best expedition-laden life. That is my overarching, sprinkle-filled goal. Thank you for joining me on this journey and I look forward to our expedition together!
