Net worth update! I’ve been bad :( June 2018

So I’m again dreading writing a post but the whole reason I started this blog was to keep myself accountable to my goals. Right now here is where I stand: It hurts to look!! Yeah, pretty much there’s no excuse. Went on holiday, shopped a ton for that holiday, went to a concert and bought stadium drinks. Stupid, but fun. So instead of beating myself … Continue reading Net worth update! I’ve been bad 😦 June 2018

Monthly budget results – April 2018

Another quick update on my net worth. Like I said, things aren’t stellar financially right now but I’m in the process of turning that around. I got a little trigger happy when I allowed myself to buy new summer clothes since it had been about 3 years (living in England makes it seem silly since they’re bagged up for about 9 months of the year). … Continue reading Monthly budget results – April 2018

3 budget friendly Valentines Day ideas

Ah Valentine’s Day, the most pointless holiday there is. Don’t waste your time booking a restaurant to sit around a bunch of other couples who feel forced to be there. It’s a waste of money. And it takes so much effort. My boyfriend and I luckily feel the exact same way about this holiday. I’d rather spend my evening with my dog and him doing … Continue reading 3 budget friendly Valentines Day ideas

Monthly budget results – January 2018

Hello! It was a LONG January. I got paid Dec 21st for January, which I think the company tries to do to help ­­­with Christmas expenses, but it ends up making the last 3 weeks of January incredibly painful for everyone. Overall it was an okay month for spending given that it started with my boyfriend’s birthday and included a little bit of late-onset shopping … Continue reading Monthly budget results – January 2018

Monthly Budget Results – November 2017

November was a really great month for me financially, and I think I owe that to my No Spend November challenge. At times, it was so so difficult to restrain myself, but it also opened my eyes to how often I ‘treat’ myself to a coffee or a treat because I’ve had a bad day or stressful minute. (A quick apology for being so late … Continue reading Monthly Budget Results – November 2017

3 tactics for resisting peer pressure spending

Kick them in the shins and run. (kidding pls don’t do that) Let me just start by saying…. This. Makes. Me. Angry. I understand that a large portion of the world doesn’t care about their finances. That’s fine. It’s stupid, but it’s fine. I can’t control them (yet) and can’t stop them from making terrible financial decisions just to appease their peers or create some … Continue reading 3 tactics for resisting peer pressure spending

Meal prep £3 dinner and wine tonight

There are a few things in life that really make me happy to my core. Like that lasting, slow-release happiness that takes work and effort and sweat and tears, but makes you raise a glass of wine at the end of the night feeling like you truly deserved it. One of these things is staying healthy through eating and exercise. For today, I’m only gonna … Continue reading Meal prep £3 dinner and wine tonight
