Saving and investing my lunch money to become financially independent.


I'm currently a working professional in New York City. After paying $10 bucks on a sandwich for lunch (it didn't even taste good), I thought that the money I spend on food could be better spent elsewhere. I decided to try saving my lunch money and packing lunch instead. I opened a brokerage account with the money I saved and have set a goal to have an account balance of $1 million by January 1st, 2019.
