While perusing the internet this week, I came across several advertisements for financing your wedding. Because there is nothing that says we are ready for the next chapter of our lives like starting it with a massive debt. Curious, I investigated more. Washington Times reported that the average price of an American wedding had reached a mind-boggling $35,329! WHAT! On a party? This amount could send that couple on good economic footing into the world. 35,000 dollars is a great downpayment on a home in most states or even a paid in full, flat-out cash price on some fixer uppers or condos.
I often see these memes about adulting: the burden, the monotony, the reluctance. When did we decide it was normal to hate what we do day in and day out. Did we make a conscious choice to spend most of our time doing something we hate to get money? Or did it just happen?

I have made a lot of money mistakes when I went traveling. I do not want to date myself but travel blogs were not as popular, and for the most part, was flying blind other than a Lonely Planet Travel Guide. I lost thousands that could have been avoided. So I compiled a list of my hard-earned tips and tricks, so you, would not make the same ones! 1. Go where your money goes farther! Choose destinations where the cost of living is low.

Because it is not! Those are just incentive programs, to do your shopping through them, or to actually do work for them by building their businesses. Passive Income is income that does not come from trading your time for money; it is something that is sustained even when you are taking no actions. However, that
