Welcome to Living Low Key
We’re Cassie and David Pipp, the owners of this blog!
Believe it or not, we weren’t always amazing at managing our money. In our early 20’s we found ourselves with over $30,000 in debt living on a $35,000 salary and struggling to pay the bills.
We decided to take control of our finances and create a killer budget so we could pay off our debt. Once we decided to make that change, we paid off our debt in just 2 years!
Now just a few years later, we are still debt free and have built our net worth to over $200,000!!
We started Living Low Key in 2017 to teach you how to pay off your debt, save more money, and start living a life of financial freedom!
How Can Living Low Key Help You
Here’s How It All Began
Our obsession with the idea of financial freedom started back in 2012. At the time we were a couple of newlywed 22-year-olds living on a small military salary, $33,000 in debt and no real focus on finances.
We we’re spending money faster than we could make it and the bills were mounting. After a couple months of struggling to pay off our debt and put food on the table, we knew something had to change.
We didn’t like the way our future looked and we knew we had to make some drastic changes. That’s when we were introduced to the idea of the Cash Envelope Budget System.
This simple budget system helped us pay off that $33,000 debt in just 2 years! Becoming debt free felt amazing and we kept that momentum going. Fast forward a few years and we’ve cash flowed my entire Bachelor’s Degree, paid cash for two newer vehicles, paid off an RV and managed to save a SIX FIGURE Retirement Account!
Using a simple budget system helped us achieve all our financial goals up to this point and now it’s time for us to help you do the same. We started Living Low Key towards the end of 2017 to share our money management tips in hopes that we could help others achieve the same success we have had.
We’re not perfect at this, but we strive to reach our goals every single day and we want to help you do the same. We may have accomplished a lot up to this point but we just created one big goal for ourselves.
We’re going to pay off our house!
We bought our first house in 2017 and we plan to have that thing paid off by 2025. That’s right, we may have taken out a 30 year mortgage, but we’re on a 8 year plan and the bank probably hates us!
Follow along as we tackle this challenge and share our journey to becoming completely DEBT FREE!!
