Piracy has made a surprising comeback on the high seas, but little pirates have been attacking my financial ship for years.

The king of the personal finance rules of thumb, spending less than I earn is easier said than done – but name one thing that isn’t. Living on less than I earn began with changing my personal spending philosophy . I’ve had to learn to moderate my cash outflows and avoid reckless spending. The gratification I get from knowing I don’t have to walk the plank is surprising. It really is a freeing experience to know that things have less control over me.
