You’ve in all probability observed a development in my posts. Quite a lot of reflection and searching again. However one factor has not modified. The easiest way for me to save cash ie have extra to pay towards debt, is to remain dwelling!
The distinction between then and now…is that I’ve a house that’s MINE! And one which I’ve reworked over the previous yr into a spot I like. Now that the climate is popping, I’m spending hours upon hours out on the deck. It’s shaded within the morning and shaded within the afternoons. I drink my first 16 oz. of water every day there because the canines greet the day.
And lots of mornings, I’ll pull my laptop computer on the market and benefit from the cooler air.
After which, after all, it’s an excellent spot to eat dinner or soar within the sizzling tub on the finish of the day. I assume, all this to say, that I feel having a spot you like to be straight correlates to the cash you might be tempted to spend to flee the “laborious” in life. And I’m so grateful to have this house that I like.
Once I was talking to my fiance at present, I informed him I used to be planning to discover a good guide and spend the entire weekend at dwelling. There’s something so releasing about that. No strain to plan, to entertain or actually even to feed anybody. (Gymnast sometimes works at his serving job all weekend.) How come it took me so lengthy to get to this place? To change into glad with precisely the place I’m.
With this quiet season of life, I’m going to reap the benefits of the cash financial savings of simply staying dwelling! And see how that interprets to financial savings and debt funds.
By the way in which, is there such a factor as a no spend quarter? I’m considering that will be a great way to kick off 2023. I ponder what that will appear to be. Like to know your ideas.
