Just bought Chanel flats to celebrate crushing the biggest meeting of my career. My firm’s president and CEO were there as well and feedback was awesome. So I treated myself to a little something on the way home 😬

Bought my YSL bag to celebrate first promo. Now, I’m eyeing buying more gold jewelry that will appreciate over time. I have a small designer shoe collection that’s fully funded by cash back. I wouldn’t spend my own money on shoes even if they are YSL, Prada, Chanel, etc only because I know how much damage they take after 1-2 wears.

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month.

Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
