I was overspending in the coffee department and I did recently start back my grocery delivery subscription because of my osteoarthritis. But I did notice … Continue reading Six Things I’m No Longer Buying [Pt. II].
Over the passed year or so, I've been trying to get back into the habit of being a better planner. Before Covid hit, I was very on top of my "planning" game. Yet for some reason, when I started working again, mixed with my partner moving in, my oldest in school, more extracurricular activities plus … Continue reading Minimalist [ish] Planner.
