I sit reviewing the budget for the hundredth time and I find I am still spending more than I make. Urg why won’t these numbers work in my favor! I haven’t had cable in years, I rarely go out to eat or even buy lunch, I drive a modest car, nor do I go on… Read More Real Results of a No Spend Month
While on Christmas break, I really took a break. I spent my days catching up on TV and sleeping late. I watched the entire “Insecure” series in two days, caught up on “How to Get Away with Murder”, and even fit in a few movies. There was one movie in particular that really affected me… Read More An Uncluttered Life: Starting With My Wardrobe
As someone who dreams of a life with so much more, I often fall into the trap that if I do more, I’ll feel more joy, and get more out of life. But somehow that math just isn’t adding up. The more I do, the more tired I feel, the less time I have to… Read More Which Goal is the Priority?

In my earlier post, I shared my vision for the next five years. I have to say, I’m feeling a bit remorseful about having shared so much. And I’m feeling like maybe I aimed too high on the desired salary. But, I rather go big and land somewhere near there, than think small and end up right… Read More Have a Big Vision, Take Little Steps
I am a girl obsessed with making list. As far back as I can remember I was making a Christmas wish list, back to school shopping list, or later in life my task or grocery list. I LOVE LISTS. My favorite list to make even as a child was my New Year’s resolutions list. Each year… Read More Define and Write Your Goals
Okay confession time…I’m a Pintrest fanatic! I was seriously addicted to the site and would spend hours (like three a day) pinning new DIY projects or meals I hoped to one day make, despite the fact that I hate cooking. Most of all, I was obsessed with homes and their interiors. I could not get… Read More Vision Boards Work and How to Make Yours!
I sat at the dinner table with my aunt, uncle, and their seven-year old son Marcos. Somehow the conversation was centered on savings.
