Hi There, I'm Ruth
My mission here at LWSL is to eliminate overwhelm and make your life just a little bit easier.
Spending wildly wasn’t something I did intentionally, but the more I tried to fill my inner void with stuff, the more unsatisfied I felt.
But now, years later, I have come to some important realizations. First, I’ve realized that I actually like saving money. Sticking to a budget forces me to tap into a creativity I never knew existed, and it is surprisingly fun and satisfying.
If this is your first time visiting, I’d love for you to get to know me better. If you’ve got lots of time, start by reading my depression story, and then read why I took my kids’ toys away or why I make my bed every day. That will pretty much bring you up to speed with where I’ve been, who I am, and how I tick. But please don’t think that this site is all about me...
