@syswarren Moving to a cheaper country has been radical when it comes to reduce my burn rate. Even in not-so-far countries such as Eastern European ones : 700EUR(800USD) a month in Warsaw. Same in Budapest and Bucharest ! Compared to my burn rate of +1400EUR(1600USD) in Paris, it's a no-brainer. Not so easy for everyone though ofc. I am currently making a web app for that as well ! :D To write down your expenses, set financial goals and improve your spending habits based on them. The MVP will be released on the 1st of September if you had like to early subscribe : https://pyrohabit.com

@syswarren @bsamel Relocation is a radical but really effective way to save money indeed. I'm French too, there was other way cheaper alternative than Paris in France too. You could have relocate in a small town with decent internet. For example, Saint-Etienne's rent are 70-80% cheaper than Paris !

@syswarren @sahinkevin true but unfortunately most of the cool stuff (business/culture wise) happening in France is centralized in Paris. At the exception of nature and fresh air :P
