The Cost of Living in Merida Mexico

We just did a visa run to Cuba and we have successfully ‘renewed’ our tourist status in Mexico for another 180 days (6 months).

After looking back at the last 6 months we decided to put together a ”The Real Cost of living In Merida, Mexico” video (scroll down). Having no major financial ties to the US made it easy for us to pick and go in 2017. We’ve found it SO AFFORDABLE to live on US dollars in places where the cost of living is lower than America’s . i. e. the dollar STRETCHES πŸ’΅!

Our top three largest expenses (currently) are:
π‘πžπ§π­: $450 for a 2,000sq.ft. space with 2bed/1.5bath
π“π«πšπ§π¬π©π¨π«π­πšπ­π’π¨π§: $250 a la Uber

Printify Vs. Printful: Pros and Cons

As I have mentioned in previous posts we moved to Mexico to get closer to United States as we set-up some different streams of passive income that are dependent on the US market. We want to be transparent in our set-ups and lessons learned as we move forward hoping that we can help someone else lay a blueprint for their own success. Read more

Jetset: Mexico City

Mexico City also known as CDMX – Ciudad de Mexico (sounds bad ass right!?!) has always been on my must-visit list! It’s brimming with rich history, beautiful architecture, and vibrant, urban neighborhoods. The capital city of Mexico is a bustling metropolis and we were excited to dip ourselves in the culture. We spent 5 days and 4 nights in CDMX, mixing our time with a few tourists activities and an open agenda. Here’s what we enjoyed in Ciudad de Mexico….Mexico City! Read more

Our VIPKID Story

Our VIPKID story started with us wanting to be liberated from our desks, brick and mortar buildings. We wanted to shift over into a location independent lifestyle! We had just married and I relocated to my husband’s home state of Michigan in the winter of 2016. I left my previous job behind, in Florida, after six years and looked forward to honeymooning and hibernating. It was nice not working for a month or two, but it quickly got boring. None of my family or friends lived in Michigan, and I found myself lacking in ways to occupy my time. So I started to look for a job I could do remotely. VIPKID popped up on my radar and was a perfect fit for me to continue retreating from the unfamiliar winter harshness. Read more

Immigrating To Mexico

We made it to our new country. Mexico! We are formally aliens of the Yucatan Peninsula. We livin in Merida, Mexico y’all -for the next year…. we think. The life of moving from city to city and country to country is the epitome of freedom to us. We love it! This moment in time is defined by the world wide refugee crisis, the vile actions if ICE and the cavalier, privileged attitude of #Merica. With all of the things going on we are grateful to make the moves that we make. To make the coin that we make and to have found a love to build together. This life and lifestyle suits us to the T. International friends, good drinks, and not knowing where we may be living or what experiences to even anticipate having from month to month is the shiznitz to us. Read more
