Hello. I’m King Cashbags and this is my blog. A big royal welcome to you. I’m generally a big fan of personal finance and frugal lifestyle blogs but am not the type who likes my frugality to be too hardcore. Mr Money Mustache is great/awesome/a badass but he is a little too extreme for me. And that American spelling of moustache jars a bit. I don’t like wasting much money and prefer to make a little extra easy money if I can. I still like the odd luxury now and then. Like most kings I try to live a good life while keeping control of my cash bags and maybe adding a few more bags to the pile. And one day soon I am sure that Queen Quidbags and I can stop going to the office because we need to and only go because we want to.
About the King
I’m middle aged monarch who does an office job in the UK by day, owns a car with no loan payments on it, pays off credit card spend every month, makes regular mortgage payments on two properties, receives rental income on one of them and who has a modest sum in cash and stocks and shares ISAs. I would definitely like to grow this with an eye on early retirement.
I live in Castle Cashbags with the wonderful Queen Quidbags and young Prince Pennybags. It is a modest three bedroom terraced castle with no moat. Our car is not a Rolls Royce or equivalent and simply gets us from A to B without breaking down.
My goal is a big enough crock of gold that in Castle Cashbags we work through choice not necessity. Still living like a king but with enough cash bags that I don’t have to worry about the day job. Join me on my quest to live happily ever after.
