Dear fellow mustachians
First I would like to share that I recently purchased a car!! Its something I have been planning and researching for months. Thanks a lot to some tips also on this forum. Paid in cash, model from 2013, as small and as safe as possible (we have kids and live on the country side). Some cosmetic flaws. It ended up being a Suzuki SX4 awd and I hope it’ll work well for many years to come. It will allow us to only buy at Lidl and easily pick up second hand purchases and go to the brocki! plus visiting friends for playdates with the kids
Over to my question,
How do you find new frugal friends? or friends that have a good relationship with money? Most of my mom friends are not in control of their finances and complain a lot about the lack of money. I have tried to help by saying I’m a bit of a budget geek but there is no interest and I don’t want to bring it up again. I know that not every friend needs to have all the qualities and interests you are looking for and value but it would be so awesome to geek out on spreadsheet topics, FI, mustachianism, investing etc IRL. I work for a remote company and live on the country side so my way of meeting friends are through the kids’ school, muki turnen etc. I guess its impossible to see if someone is frugal or just bad with money…
Curious about your thoughts on this topic, thanks!
