Anoschen is working + organizing.
My boyfriend’s business, and my father’s business. This has changed my opinions on several things. I realized that I have a LOT of respect for small business owners. They work their asses off CONSTANTLY, and it’s amazing how much effort they put into their work.
I can’t cut all large corporations out because quite frankly, I don’t have a lot of money, but I’ll work towards supporting small businesses as frequently as possible. I’ve decided to use the internet to my advantage—when I run out of body wash, I’ll buy soap from Etsy, along with candles and lip balms and the list goes on. Either that, or I’ll make my own (but a combination of this seems most likely).
In the future, I also plan on buying prints from freelance artists, some clothing from independent fashion designers, and perhaps notebooks from Etsy.
Processed food is another thing I won’t really go for. My beloved enjoys them from time to time, and I might take a few bites, but I don’t really like to. I’ve been working on making meal plans lately, buying all of the ingredients, and making real dinners (this also helps me with my 50 new recipes goal)!
