Living and Learning on a Budget

I came across Joshua Murphy’s great blog post on “How to Sustain Yourself White You Train Yourself.” Something that I have learned in the process of self-education is how to budget. He covers topics like living in your means, not depending on credit, and splitting your costs. Since I decided to forego the dorms, I have saved $10,000 in extra expenses.

Tools, Resources, and Experiences are the categories that Joshua separated his learning budget.

  • Tools – Drums to learn how to drum, a camera to learn how to shoot pictures, or a wok to learn how to make gourmet stir-fry. It all depends on what you want to learn!

 

  • Resources – Finding a coach, private lessons, community college classes, buying books, or tangible things that will help you gain the knowledge to implement the tools.

 

  • Experiences – Airplane tickets, networking events, cultural experiences, festivals – why spend a lot of money on material possessions when you can have shared experiences and memories that are worth a bunch more?

How do you separate your expenses and learn? Do you have a good way to organize and manage how you learn? Leave a comment below!

Hope you’re living a BellaVie!
