Opt out of expectations and live a more intentional life with this refreshing guide from the national bestselling author of The Year of Less. We all follow our own path in life. At least, that's what we're told. In reality, many of us either do what is expected of us, or follow the invisible but well-worn paths that lead to what is culturally acceptable. For some, those paths are fine -- even great. But they leave some of us feeling disconnected from ourselves and what we really want. When that discomfort finally outweighs the fear of trying something new, we're ready to opt out. After going through this process many times, Cait Flanders found there is an incredible parallel between taking a different path in life and the psychological work it takes to summit a mountain -- especially when you decide to go solo. In Adventures in Opting Out, she offers a trail map to help you with both. As you'll see, reaching the first viewpoint can be easy -- and it offers a glimpse of what you're walking toward. Climbing to the summit for the full view is worth it. But in the space between those two peaks you will enter a world completely unknown to you, and that is the most difficult part of the path to navigate. With Flanders's guidance and advice, drawn from her own journey and stories of others, you'll have all the encouragement and insight you'll need to take the path less traveled and create the life you want. Just step up to the trailhead and expect it to be an adventure.

Can you move to your dream city on an entry-level salary? Can you make it through graduate school and still pay your bills? Can you manage being out on your own for the first time in your life without ending up in debt? Ellen Zitani lived in New York City as a graduate student for seven years. She resigned from a well-paying salaried job in order to further her education. To take advantage of this opportunity, she knew it would come with some financial belt-tightening. Along the way, she learned that with the proper budgeting system, she could live a comfortable lifestyle and not worry about accumulating debt as she completed her education. If you love the urban lifestyle but don't earn the money to enjoy it comfortably, then this book is for you. It will teach you how to embrace minimalism and feel healthy doing so. From the worksheets to the case studies, The Envelope System will help you feel like you have more control over your finances so that you can make the most of what you have. So grab a pen, open the book, sit down, and work your way through it. The Envelope System is a lifestyle of conscious choices and consistent actions that can help anyone, at any age, be financially responsible, and therefore find more freedom in their life.
