LoToMojo's Recipe for Financial Freedom

One man's recipe for financial freedom. Of course you are encouraged to season to taste, but I do not recommend winning the lottery or playing professional sports as those tend to leave a particular and surprisingly bad after taste.


1 decent-paying, tolerable corporate job 
2-5 weeks annual vacation (increases with seniority) 
1 inexpensive, fuel-efficient automobile 
0 babies  
2 heaping scoops of frugality 
1 bicycle 


  1. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place 1 decent-paying, tolerable corporate job into skillet
  3. Slowly stir in 2-5 weeks annual vacation to ease the strain of the homogenous grey cubicle world full of corporate buzzspeak in which you reside. 
  4. Add 1 inexpensive fuel efficient vehicle that you can drive for 18 years. 
  5. Combine with zero babies
  6. Add two heaping scoops of frugality, mixing regularly. 
  7. Simmer for 20 years.
  8. Place securely on back of 1 bicycle and deliver to those you love.

What - no acronyms in this recipe? What about LTC, UL, VA, GBWB? (Actually, I like your recipe better).

Best of all... freedom from TLAs! (three-letter acronyms).
