Immigrant style

Hi all,

today I'd like to talk about the way us immigrants live and how we buy the things we need.

Myself and Gary Vee like to call it living life IMMIGRANT STYLE!

To put that into context, that means that for me and my wonderful partner in crime Alex there is no safety net and no soft mat to land on in case we screw up (i.e. Centrelink or wealthy parents)

For us it's very simple:  IF I DON'T WORK -- I DON'T EAT!!!

This has changed now since we are permanent residents in Australia now but the mindset that's behind that has not!

In daily life that means that we have to make sure that every single dollar we earn must travel as long as possible to get the maximum out of it!

It means that by shopping smart we have been able to reduce our food cost per week to about $100 per week for two people!

(and those of you who know me know that I am a rather hungry guy... :))

It means that we have canned our internet connection and use our prepaid phones as a hotspot which works us just fine.

It means that we make sure we have enough dough on the side that enables us to continue to pay the bills for minimum six months without having to get a loan of go to centrelink and ask the govenment for money.

It means that we are to proud of what we've achieved to even think about centrelink support even if we could...

Not too long ago we were literally at rock bottom financially - now were not - because of what I call our biggest asset, our Immigrant Style lifestyle.

P.S. Leave your thoughts and questions in the comments below!

Until next time - be awesome!
