Not so long ago, I was working a job that saw me driving in peak hour traffic twice a day. An hour there, over an hour back, three times a week. I was having to fill up my car with petrol once every week to week and a half. I was miserable at the job,… Continue reading Blowing My Transport Budget: A Public Transport Rant
Whyyyyyy do all the expenses come at once? It is some kind of Murphy's law that when you have to buy or replace things, it all happens at the same. Can you tell that that's what happened this month? To be fair, some of it was purchases that I'd been putting off for a long… Continue reading A Month of $pending…But There’s Good News!
I'm sick. More specifically, I have a terrible cold, I have injured my ankle and my elbow, and I am bloody exhausted. I injured my ankle as I was walking home from class on Saturday night, carrying a million and one things, and I feel very ungracefully on to the pavement and cried. I was… Continue reading The Value of No
It's been a while since I posted and I apologise! What can I say? The start of the year has been busy and full of changes, so I got absorbed in to my real life instead of regularly posting online.

Also, because I've been working less this month (it's the down season for my work) I've been saving… Continue reading Frugal Things, Wednesday January 24th
It's so close to the new year I can taste it, so I started to look back at my handy dandy spreadsheets and compile figures for the last few months. I'm not going to go completely in to the nitty gritty here, but I will compare my net worth, which I first started recording in… Continue reading 2017 in Numbers and New Habits
The end of the year is creeping closer, which is so very exciting. I don't celebrate Christmas, and I've never been one for New Year's Eve, but I do love January 1st. January is infused with a sense of new beginnings, and the lead up to it is the perfect time to take an inventory of… Continue reading What Giving Up Concealer Taught Me About My Skin
I think for perhaps the first time ever I have an equal number of frugal things and frugal fails! It's been an epic wind down to the end of the year, so here's what's been happening... Frugal things: 1. Bought petrol while the price was down and have been taking lots of public… Continue reading Frugal Things, Tuesday December 19th
Recently my friend shared this amazing article about self care with me.
