Los Angeles is an expensive city. There is no way around that. Housing costs a fortune, food is almost never cheap, and most people have to maintain cars in order to get around. This isn’t a problem if you have a significant and steady income. It’s a very big problem if you are like me and have an income that changes month to month and can never be considered “generous.” In this situation, I had two choices: stay at home on the couch (I do love the couch), or find ways to improve my quality of life that would not make it impossible to pay the rest of my bills.
Guess which one I chose? Yes, staying on the couch.
No, I’m kidding. While I am a homebody, I found it was easy to fall into a sad state of wondering why I made the big leap to try new things if I never actually did them. Luckily, my husband, also a writer living in a gig economy, is all about the new adventure.
This website has grown out of that need to improve the quality of our lives without going bankrupt (and I mean that literally). Sometimes all you have are little things, and more often than not, those little things really are inspiring. We have chosen to embrace the small moments, the little wins, and our minuscule steps taken in a better direction. And we have chosen to share these things with you.
