Conventional wisdom isn’t wise to everyone. Most Americans live frenzied nine-to-five jobs, trying to make ends meet on ever-increasing lists of bills. Owning a home, a car, and saving for a rainy day seem like fantasies from past generations. Cubicle jobs are omnipresent, and shortcuts such as time-saving apps and productivity hacks somehow leave us busier than ever.
A different path may seem impossible, but it’s not. Elizabeth Willard Thames is proof that by living frugally, you can live a radically independent life. If you could cut out most of your meaningless spending in order to achieve financial independence, would you?
