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

Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

It's Sephora sale time! I have always thought that there is a privilege in being able to shop sales. Being able to afford to stock up on your normal products and try out some new things with less financial risk because you got 20 or 15% off. But you still have to have spare funds … Continue reading Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

What I’m Buying in March

This month is feeling a bit less predictable than February did. I'm expecting a very large paycheque so I might have a bit more flexibility to be able to do some of my other goals that require spending money. But I'm not sure, I need to see how much it will be before I can … Continue reading What I’m Buying in March

What I’m Buying in February

This is going to be a new series, a part of the financial accountability I'm striving for. But I don't feel like that quite sums it up, it's about being thoughtful about how I spend my money, what I bring into my house, what I put onto and into my body and just generally overall … Continue reading What I’m Buying in February
