Never did I ever think I would be someone who thrived in a routine type setting. Although I suppose it seems natural since my brain tends to be all over the place. Having a schedule seems like a necessary thing that prevents my life from being total chaos. While I do not live on a super strict schedule (in my opinion), doing a sort-of time-blocking system has really proven effective for homeschooling while running my own online business from home.
It has been a hot minute since I have talked about budgeting methods and a big reason is, we’ve shifted the way we budget in a big way. Since I was such a proud member of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace community, I almost felt a shame after switching my budgeting practice to be a little different than dear, old, Dave’s. However, after walking a friend through how to set up a budget, it occurred to me that I need to share this with more people! Here is a breakdown of the 5 bank accounts we have (trust me, it’s not that complicated) and how we use them to budget less and boost our credit.
There is a ton of information about self-help on the shelves these days. Right? So much so that your mind just might explode from the massive amount of information consumption. What this over-load of info can lead to is people repeatedly trying different tactics and techniques that leave them living in a total state of chaos. So how are you supposed to know what information to try and what self-help strategies just won’t work for you? I’ve broken down some ideas on how to tap into what works for you so you can create your own self-help routine.
A few years ago I got super swept up into the wide-world of goal setting. It all started when I started the blog. I paid for trainings that continually told me to set goals to grow my blow. While I do love this concept and see where the benefits lie, I also found goal setting to be a bottomless pit of despair. That might sound dramatic, but that’s pretty much what it felt like. As I quietly snuck out of the goal-setting culture I began to find that there were others like me and that this whole goal-setting thing can actually lead to so major setbacks. If you’ve been struggling with setting and sticking to your goals, here are some reasons why it might not be working for you.
I recently shared on TikTok that I have a minimalist “uniform” that I wear. Now, let’s be clear, this isn’t something I planned on happening. It just sort of, happened. There was a big response to the post with people chiming in with how much they love their own uniforms. Amidst those comments were even more comments asking for specifics about mine. Since we are living in a time where work at-home style is all the rage, I decided to share the specifics about my go-to outfit as a work at home entrepreneur.
It recently dawned on me that I very much have a uniform. Trust me, this wasn’t something I planned on having happen. As someone who used to struggle with a shopping addiction, the idea of every simplifying my wardrobe or owning less was a ridiculous idea. However, I have come to terms with the fact that I am someone who has officially created a uniform without even knowing it. And honestly, I think more people are ready to hop on board. If you’re hoping to build a more uniform style minimalist wardrobe, here are 5 steps to get you started.
