Vinu is an Information Technology professional who enjoys blogging about personal finance, technology, and minimalism.

Lakshmi is a Mental Health professional who loves music, blogging, and traveling.

We are both second-generation Indian immigrants to the United States. You could say we both have dual identities growing up in India and spending our adult lives in the United States.

We started this blog to monitor our progression towards financial freedom. By jotting down our expenses and keeping track of our monthly spending, we will be less likely to spend our money frivolously. Drifters Thrift blog keeps us grounded if you will, on our journey to achieve financial freedom.

What Does Drifters Thrift Mean?

We are promoters of the F.I.R.E movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early) One day, and we hope to break free from being a slave to the system and enjoy more things we love without worrying about finances.

Our blog name, Drifters Thrift, came from our idea of being able to drift and travel the world while living a minimal lifestyle. We both don’t enjoy being tied to just one place when the world is our playground. 

A stream of passive income is a massive part of making our dream happen. We hope that one day, through the income from our online ventures as well as investments, we will be able to make our dream into a reality.

We both enjoy blogging because it gives us one more purpose in life. Coming from diverse backgrounds, we have both experienced many aspects of life, and we believe we have a wealth of information to share with the world.
