Time for Action

There comes a point when one must realize that more knowledge is not the answer. Reading yet another self-help book isn’t going to fix anything if you aren’t willing to set the boundaries, address your trauma, and say the hard things. Watching another decluttering video isn’t going to clean your house for you. You have…

The Habit of Self-care

I don’t take care of myself. I realized this two days ago when I started to feel sick, which I’m attributing to being overtired. I’m a people pleaser, my love language is acts of service, and I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so I’m known to go and go and go until I fall out…

Must love Dogs…but I wish I didn’t own one.

I have owned a dog since I was in my early twenties. Not the same dog, actually, there have been many that have filled my home over the years. When our last dog passed away last year, my husband and I agreed we would take a long break from dog ownership. That break lasted exactly…

The Observers

My in-laws are lovely individuals. They are generous people who are always quick to pick up the tab. Givers of expensive gift cards on birthdays and Christmas. Brilliant professionals that enjoy conversations about a vast array of topics. If you met them you would find them easy to talk to and you might assume that…

What if I just…

What if I just… Would everything fall apart? Would everything improve? Would I become the best version of myself? Or would all these things just be different things to focus on?

How do financial bloggers spend so little on food?

I’ve read a lot of financial blogs over the past year, placing my specific focus on how to decrease spending in certain parts of my budget, such as food in and outside of the home. In January, I did a comparison analysis where I added up all my grocery spending for the past four months.…

Frugal Win of the Week

My frugal win of the week borders on the line of being a complete cheapskate but I could not care less. In my pantry were a few remaining handfuls of Halloween candy which found their way into plastic Easter eggs for my kiddo’s Easter basket. Think she knew her mommy was a repurposing genius this…

Social Media Experiment Results

I’ve successfully completed my first Less For Now Challenge! In my post It’s Time I Stop Lying To Myself I discussed my reasons for doing this challenge, with the main one being that I wanted to improve the way I spend my time. So, for one month I eliminated all social media from my life. The…

Frugal Win of the Week

My Frugal Win of the Week is a grocery bill of $44 thanks to shopping my pantry and freezer. I decided this week I would forgo my usual grocery shopping trip of $150 for our family of three in lieu of eating the items we currently own. I tend to spend all of our weekly…

Why I suck at being a Minimalist

I discovered the concept of Minimalism right after a nasty divorce. The very first Christmas after leaving that douche bag was the eye opening moment where I realized I needed to unload a bunch of stuff, mainly because a lot of it held memories of him. This realization led me to do a google search…
