Hi! My name is His Polish Princess and I am engaged to my Old Man. We live a modest lifestyle with the goal of early retirement. But life has a funny way of changing your plans and did just that for us.

In September 2015, I as diagnosed with cancer. One day I was a perfectly healthy 20-something and the next was told I would need chemicals pumped throughout my body.  So we evaluated our options and treated the cancer.  Somewhere along the line, I decided I didn’t really want to pull money out of my emergency fund to pay for treatment and I would rather cut expenses elsewhere to pay those thousands of dollars in medical bills. So I started optimizing and price checking and asking myself where I could save money.

This blog started out of paying for cancer, but I hope it inspires people to save an extra dollar here and there and open their eyes to the possibility of self-funded retirement.
