2023 Wish List

I love wish lists, I think they are a great way to guide your shopping. It's not a budget (especially because normally our wish list items tend to be bit more expensive than what we may actually buy), but I find that they help keep your planned purchases and resist impulse shopping. Of course I … Continue reading 2023 Wish List

The Friday Edit: Vol. 3

What I Did This Week// This week was all work and routines focused. On Monday, I had to get up at 6am for work, like that was the absolute latest minute I could get out of bed. But then for the rest of the week a little voice in my head said "What if we … Continue reading The Friday Edit: Vol. 3

What I’m Buying in December

It is so interesting to make this post this month, because despite it being December, famously one of the spendiest months of the year. I'm not planning on buying that much? Of course, I didn't put the Christmas presents I'm buying in the collage (I know my sister sometimes reads this, I don't think anyone … Continue reading What I’m Buying in December

What I’m Buying in November

I'm not planning on buying much in November, not a no-buy but just really scaling it back. I also want to really refocus on saving. I want to have enough savings to be able to apply for jobs all over and not be worried about how much it costs to move there, I want to … Continue reading What I’m Buying in November

Saturday Scroll: 11/05/22

I am so excited for this weekend, I need to sleep and not talk to anyone. My voice is gone. I don't know why, but every time I get sick I lose my voice. In high school, I used to keep a whiteboard in my locker to carry with me. Also, no one talks about … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 11/05/22

What I’m Buying in October

The one thing about writing these posts basically mid-month is that I've already bought nearly everything on this list and now I need to stop shopping, especially since I accidentally ordered the wrong item because I'm an idiot who doesn't pay attention and only noticed after it shipped and now I can't change it. Anyways: … Continue reading What I’m Buying in October

What I’m Buying in June

So like I mentioned in my May Financial Fitness Check In, we are tightening the belt in June. Also, to be honest I don't know if there is really anything else I need at the moment. Except to get my winter tires swapped out, a pair of white pants (I am having a very hard … Continue reading What I’m Buying in June

City Shopping List

When you live somewhere like where I live you do a lot of online shopping, but you also keep a running list going of things that you have no clue how to buy online or are unwilling to buy three or four different sizes of an item to try and figure out what size works … Continue reading City Shopping List

What I’m Buying in May

This has quickly become one of my favourite posts to write in this Month in Review/Monthly Planning series that I do. It makes me so much more intentional about what I purchase, what I do with my money, and I do stick to it, and if there is something that comes up in the middle … Continue reading What I’m Buying in May

What I’m Buying in April

I think that April is going to be a month that I focus a bit on starting to build a wardrobe that is realistic for my current circumstances, rather than aspirational. I love clothes, I love dressing up and wearing pretty dresses and pretty shoes, but I also hate attracting attention to myself (says she … Continue reading What I’m Buying in April
