Nice post, and a good reminder. I’ve gotten a little “spendy” lately and need to get some discipline back. Speaking of which, you should always keep a bunch of delicious craft beers in the fridge so you can really work on your discipline by not drinking them! :)

I would say my multi-family house has been neutral, at best. I was so incredibly happy to buy it, but the hassle of owning it and all the money I’ve sank into it really soured my view.

On the other hand, I am eagerly anticipating my trip to Seattle to see you and everyone else at Camp Mustache! That’s a big boost in happiness :)

This post really made me think. Our lives have contained very few upgrades over our 11 years of marriage, except some very memorable travel.

However, possibly the most significant downgrade, in a way, has been building a tiny house and living for free in exchange for farm chores. Definitely a series of sacrifices, challenges, learning experiences, and ultimately, growth. To date, we have saved around $50,000 that would otherwise have gone toward rent and utilities. Someday, we plan to buy a “big house” and VRBO the tiny house for additional income.

Lifestyle downgrade today for lifestyle upgrade / financial freedom tomorrow!

Great list, MMM!

I particularly like the “How much better will your life be in one year, if you make this decision right now?” I’ve often taken the perspective of a decade out, asking “What will my future self think?” But bringing it in helps balance the anti-delayed gratification tendencies a little more. I’ll try and do more of that :)

To answer your question on life upgrades: I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to take several months’ of parental leave when our second child was born. The cost was obviously a reduction in income and hence a longer distance to FI, but our family used that time to build some awesome memories and experiences that we still reflect on a half-decade later.

My best recent upgrade was home brewing. I make fresh beer that is superior to the fanciest of store-bought microbrews, at a fifth of the cost. I’ve made new friends at brew clubs, I make beer for friends’ weddings, and I teach others to brew. The ‘actual benefit’ bump is three years long so far, and is soon to spawn another bump. My kegerator is in the process of a DIY solar power upgrade. That project is a springboard for future off-grid upgrades. Now I just have to get back on that 100 pushups plan!

Marlins manager Don Mattingly recalled that he noticed early signs of Brinson's injury a little over one week ago and that it's been ongoing ever since. Wary of further injury, a trip to the DL was the Marlins' best option.

"I kept noticing little gyrations in the box -- you could tell that the hip was bothering him," Mattingly said. "I think our biggest concern was change of gait, hamstrings, stuff like that. It just seems like, 'Let's get on top of this right now, let's get it knocked out, so we can move forward.'"

In his first season with Miami, Brinson is hitting .186 with 10 homers and 30 RBIs. J.B. Shuck started in his place on Wednesday.

"It takes a lot to get me to stop playing, especially when I feel I can contribute and have been for the past couple weeks," Brinson said. "I got tight hips, I call them fast-guy problems."

Brinson's trip to the DL opened up a roster spot that the Marlins used to bolster their depleted bullpen, recalling Dillon Peters from Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday. Peters will likely be the first man out of the 'pen Wednesday afternoon, after seven Marlins relievers were used Tuesday evening.

"Peters is fully rested and ready to go," Mattingly said. "I'd say a word would be 'inconsistent' with him. He's had some good starts and some starts that weren't good. Obviously, we know what he's capable of, but we're rooting for his development, for sure."

The Marlins also reinstated right-hander Jose Urena from the 10-day DL for Wednesday's start. Urena had been sidelined since June 21 with a right shoulder impingement.

Mattingly and the Marlins are in desperate need of innings from Urena on Wednesday, but Mattingly ensured the team will be keeping a close eye on their starter and will check in on how he's feeling periodically over the course of the game.

"Obviously, you ask your starter to keep you in the game. So hopefully Jose falls in line and is sharp today," Mattingly said. "You never quite know, when a guy's been down for an extended period of time, what you're going to get. With Jose, you always expect it to be pretty good."

To free up a roster spot for Urena, right-hander Sandy Alcantara was placed on the 10-day DL with a right axillary infection, retroactive to July 1. The Marlins announced the injury to their rookie on Tuesday , and officially made the roster move Wednesday morning.

"It's the infection under the armpit," Mattingly explained. "It showed up the other day and got worse and we knew we weren't going to be able to pitch him. Four or five days no throwing and then building back up."

As for the rotation moving forward, Mattingly expects his starters to jump a day, moving Pablo Lopez to pitch Thursday in Washington for the Marlins' opener of a four-game set with the Nationals. Dan Straily , Wei-Yin Chen and Trevor Richards will follow.
