Ok, let’s be clear, I can’t afford to pay your rent or mortgage, but someone I admire is running a contest to do exactly that. There’s no catch. All you have to do is comment and say what you’d do with the money you save.
Ramit Sethi is the author of the bestselling book I Will Teach You to Be Rich. His technique is all about automating your savings and spending. I read the book years ago, but it seems like his blog has a lot of the same material for free.
Speaking of mortgages, isn’t it crazy how mortgage rates have jumped since the beginning of the year? Ugh, who wants to lock in a 4.75% mortgage rate when just last year rates were 3.5%? Too bad, so sad. Plus there is like no inventory in San Francisco unless you want to live in constant fog in the outer Richmond or Sunset (the name of that neighborhood is so ironic), or if you’re willing to trade in safety to own a home in Bayview. Ugh, we’ll stick to our apartment for the time being.
