This is a Financial Freedom Update post. Each month I report the status of my journey towards more financial freedom and reflect on my progress. To learn more about financial freedom please see my Think Week 2021 post where it all started.

A few expenses here and there.

For now my re-focus on expenses is working. I had a few here and there in January that I could probably be without if I really wanted to cut down but overall I’m good with the result. My biggest purchases were a pair of trail shoes (running) and workout equipment so I can do strength exercises at home. I’d say worth it.
