A Shopaholic’s Month Without Shopping: Recap & Review

So maybe I missed a few of the last would-be posts. March was busy, especially toward the end of the month. Days 23-31 were a bit of a blur, my sister visited, Kevin bought an N64 and together we explored all the nooks and cranny of vintage game hunting, among other things and as my month… Continue reading A Shopaholic’s Month Without Shopping: Recap & Review


Day 22: How Many Weird Illnesses Can I Get?

Let's journey back. A little over three weeks ago (before I started this project) I got pink eye. As a 23 year old who doesn't work with children and hasn't had pink eye since she was 10. I also had the flu earlier this year, I've been getting lots of migraines, and like everyone in… Continue reading Day 22: How Many Weird Illnesses Can I Get?

Day 20: Did Ya Miss Me?

Today? We owed 27.74$. For a full month. I'm shocked,… Continue reading Day 16: And It Wasn’t Even Scary!

Day 15: Mental Health and a Little TLC

Today I returned some too expensive shoes that I didn't even like. Post my good deed of the day I grabbed a latte and started to digest how I have been feeling the past two weeks. Being on Day 15 means that I am halfway to my goal and halfway done with this project. I'm… Continue reading Day 15: Mental Health and a Little TLC

Day 14: Surprise, I’m in a Coffee Shop

Being at the halfway point I took a small inventory today and found that I have saved over 800$ this month. I've still been going out to dinners, actually going out more now that I can help offset the cost that normally fell just on Kevin, enjoying lattes and espressos at my favorite shops, and… Continue reading Day 14: Surprise, I’m in a Coffee Shop
