Mrs. Frugalwoods is a testament to what extreme frugality can look like if you do it right. Extreme frugality, very different than minimalism so don't get them confused, is all about financial independence. When you let go of your need or obsession to buy and accumulate stuff, and focus on living simply, buying what you need (not just what you want), and spending your money on what really matters — well, maybe then you'll be able to live on 66 acres in the woods while working remotely too.

Long description:

Not long after I recorded this episode of the podcast with the lovely Mrs. Frugalwoods, I got to meet her in-person at FinCon 2016. In case you don't know, FinCon is a massive personal finance blogging conference, and this year there was over 1,200 attendees so it's a miracle I found Mrs. Frugalwoods amongst the crowd! Mrs. Frugalwoods did not disappoint in the flesh either. She was just as sweet, genuine and friendly as she came off during our interview together. She also has this calmness about her that I seriously want to just bottle up and store (or sell).

The big reason I wanted her on my show is to find out just how she did it. How did she manage to escape the city and live in the woods with her husband and baby. How did she manage to get out of the rat race and world obsessed with materials, and live the simple life like so many of us dream about.

Well, she spills all her secrets in this episode, so make sure to take some notes! A lot has to do with embracing extreme frugality, which she explains is very different than being a minimalist. Definitely something I hope to incorporate a tiny bit more into my life, and you may want to too.
