About

Since you clicked on the About page, I’m assuming you’re interested in what this “Memento Mori Money” thing is all about.

Well I’m excited you’re here!

Memento Mori Money is a blog about getting the most out of life, with a focus on personal finance.

I’ll be writing about getting out of debt, saving money, making money, spending to save, financial independence, minimalism, and life in general.

The phrase Memento Mori is a Latin phrase that roughly translates to “Remember you will Die.” That sounds pretty morbid, but in reality it is an incredibly freeing thought. I explain more about why the phrase means so much to me here.

As a disclaimer, I’m no financial wizard. In fact, I currently have a negative personal net worth due to student loans (which I’m aggressively attacking). However, I do think that over the last year I’ve developed some good financial practices, and I’m excited to share them with you.

I started this blog to chronicle my financial journey, invest in a creative outlet, and hopefully help others along the way. A few years from now when I’m debt free and on my way to financial independence, I’ll be able to look back and see where it all started.

Hopefully you’ll find it worth your time to come along for the ride.

Memento Mori!
