Lately, I’ve been a little uninspired by my 43things list. I logged in each day and wailed (inwardly), “Oh 43T. Where did our spark go? What happened to us? You’ve changed!”
But now I get it.
SIMPLIFY. That is, listing the little goals, that will set me on a path towards the glistening achievement of bigger goals.
So I have a new account, to start afresh, and find new inspiration.
I am here
Here’s wishing you a luscious birthday, filled with all sorts of smiles and all manner of goodness!
large takeaway chai latte – approx. 3 times per week = $12 weekly
takeaway food – approx 2 times per week = $40 weekly
going over my phone cap = approx $30 month
That, alone adds up to $2856 a year!
Then, there are the extra groceries I buy, just so I can make a particular dish, even if it means I don’t use the ones we already have and eventually have to throw them out because they go bad. LACK OF PLANNING!
Then, there are the more expensive brands I buy, just because I’ve become used to them, but I know very well I don’t need to pay double just so my garbage bags are scented, or just so the laundry liquid smells like a Hawaiian holiday.
Some solutions here are:
- Mindfulness of frivolous/fruitless spending. Do I really need to buy a chai latte every day, when I can make a delcious chai brew at home?
- Meal planning. Each week, before grocery shopping, I sit down with my YummySoup.html and plan meals for the week, then write a grocery list (taking into account my house-mate’s grocery needs) that I stick to!
