Finance posts are all about the economics of RV Living. Posts will include the obvious like funding a Supersize LIFE, startup costs, purchasing an RV and making money from the road. But I am casting a wide net here, so you’ll also find the not-so-obvious like choosing a credit card, unusual ways to save money, work camping, reducing costs on the road and thinking outside the box when it comes to possible income streams. Posts in this category will go up the Fourth Monday of every month.
These Finance posts relate to my journey of creating a Supersize LIFE. Selling everything, buying an RV and hitting the road fulltime is how I am creating my Supersize LIFE. It may not be yours. I hope the information in this category will be broad enough to be useful to you, no matter what your journey looks like. Most of all, I hope it will inspire and encourage you to Supersize your LIFE.

Then in last month’s Finances post, I shared non-internet options for getting rid of crap. And today we come to internet options for downsizing. Needless to say, with the vast, seemingly endless, internet comes thousands of […]
Last month, I introduced the topic of downsizing. Today I want to get into the nitty-gritty of it all by focusing on the non-internet options for getting rid of crap. In next month’s post, we’ll explore internet-based selling options. At the start, I need to say what I share reflects my experiences. Your area, city […]
I thought about naming this series, “Getting Rid of Crap.” A bit crass, though true. But it’s hard to get rid of a lifetime of crap. It takes time, patience, steadfastness and determination. It also involves frequent trips down memory lane (which can slow the process). In the end, I realize downsizing truly is an […]
Let’s start with a recipe. This has been my formula for holiday shopping. Start with an ultra-organized brain, mix in a high level of money awareness (aka: fear of debt), then add a dash of lack-of-love for shopping. Shake vigorously and serve. The name of this recipe? Half a Humbug. Or maybe, the Mint-Colored Grinch. […]
