Hello, and thank you for stumbling into Stilettos or Savings! There’s a saying often quoted about life being short, so buy the shoes… but what if you didn’t? What would that allow you to do instead?
This blog is about learning to live a life that doesn’t revolve around material things – although don’t you worry – I have an affliction for five-inch heels and it’s not easy to ignore (almost) every pretty pump that comes my way.
My name is DC Beth and I am a former figure skater, sorority girl, Army soldier and stiletto aficionado. I live in outside D.C. with my boyfriend Mr. Cabbage and cat ZimMaster Flash. Together we are working toward complete personal financial freedom so we can live our lives anyway we choose. Currently, our lifestyle is far from deprivation, and more about making the smart financial decisions and choosing which fun things we can afford to do.
Last year (2019) we sold my condo, lived in a series of motels for over a month while looking for a new home to create together. It was a series of blunders and tribulations, but WE MADE IT and we are now living in a beautiful home. Now, we are racing to pay it off as quickly as we can and enjoy that freedom that we’re all striving for.
