My 2019 Goals – More ambitious and original

Categories FIRE, Frugality, Goals, Minimalism, SpendingLeave a comment on My 2019 Goals – More ambitious and original

Now that the year is over, it is time for me to set new goals for the year 2019. Last year, I started setting goals for myself. I really liked this experience. So, I am going to do the same once again with my 2019 Goals. In 2018, I have been able to reach most of my goals.

Earlier, I have reviewed the goals for 2018. I have seen that several of the goals were not really interesting. And most of the goals were not ambitious enough. For 2019, I am going to try to set better and more ambitious goals. Of course, these goals still need to be attainable. There is no point in setting myself the goal of earning one million in a single year.

In this post, I am going to go over all my 2019 Goals. It is going to be a big piece of words!

Adopting the Minimalist Lifestyle Book Review

Categories Books, FIRE, Frugality, Minimalism2 Comments on Adopting the Minimalist Lifestyle Book Review

I was thinking to buy a small book on minimalism recently. But actually, I bought a pack of several books about minimalism. To be honest, I was thinking I was buying a single book but ended up with a pack. Oh well. The first book  I have read is Adopting the Minimalist Lifestyle by Ariel Horowitz.

It’s a really tiny book. I was thinking the entire set of book was small already, but each book is tiny. It’s a minimalist book about minimalism ;) I have been able to find it for very cheap on Kindle once again. It is difficult to find this kind of books in my used book shop. But if you are patient, it is relatively easy to find them for cheap on Amazon.

Disaster file – A simple way to prepare for your death

Categories Budget, Minimalism, TipsLeave a comment on Disaster file – A simple way to prepare for your death

Today, I am going to talk about a subject that most people would rather not talk about: death. More specifically, we are going to talk about what will happen to your family after your death. Even if it is not a funny concern, you should prepare for your death. Not for you, but for people who depend on you. The bills will not stop to come after your death.

Your loved ones just went to the tragic event of your death. Now, they may be faced with new difficulties. What if you are the only one that knows how to get access to the banking system? What if you are the only one with access to all the insurances policies?

A disaster file is one way to help your loved ones during this trouble. This will help in that case, but it will not solve all the possible problems of course. It is a first step to be better prepared.

How to sell things online in Switzerland ?

Categories Frugality, Minimalism, Side Hustle, Switzerland, Tips3 Comments on How to sell things online in Switzerland ?

Recently, I did some ordering in my technology closet (yes, I am the kind of guy that has a technology closet…). And I realized that I had way too many things stored at home. I also realized that I had way too many servers. So I decided to sell online a few things. I also decided I was being crazy and started to dismount two of my servers to sell the pieces.

I am mostly using online websites to sell things. To be honest, I am far from being a minimalist. This is easily seen by my technology that is still too full after this first purge. But I am trying to reduce a bit the amount of burden I own. And if I can get some money in the process, it is bonus ;)

In this post, I am going to talk about what am I selling online in Switzerland. And how am I selling them!

Categories FIRE, Frugality, Goals, Minimalism, Tips2 Comments on Why (and how) I went paperless

Last year, I decided to go paperless with my administrative documents. It was a long work. But now I am finally done. All my documents are available as electronic documents now. I have been able to throw away five big document binders.

I have used my phone as a scanner and uploaded all my documents to the cloud. Now my documents are accessible from anywhere. And they are safely stored in the cloud. Find out how I became paperless for free in this post.
