What’s happening, personal finance buddies? It’s been a good while since my last Bits & Pieces post, so I’m sharing a new one today!
Pinterest – I’m in love with Pinterest! It’s so much fun to see fresh content and share posts. I love seeing what pins get repinned – like this pin for cool adult piggy banks! So fun. Follow me on Pinterest here.
Spending – Remember how I planned to keep my spending to $1,750 a month in 2015? Keeping my life frugal but fun? Well, March has not gone according to plan. Spending has been out of control this month. To the point I’m almost scared to do my monthly recap of spending. Hoping it’s just a one month thing!
Temp jobs – I’ve worked a couple part time temp jobs over the last month to make ends meet. Turns out starting a business can be slow. Revenue isn’t exactly flowing in but bills don’t stop. Enter: temp jobs! Some have been good, some less so. Either way, I’m keeping my head afloat with blog income, freelance clients, temp part time jobs, and business income. But overall? I’m getting pulled too thin in too many directions. Hoping to focus on just a few things soon!
Blog Reading – Here are a few posts I read and enjoyed this week:
- Becoming a millionaire by Mr Every Day Dollar. Really interesting perspective and tips on becoming a millionaire.
- 19 Reasons Why We Still Drive a 19 Year Old Car by Cash Cow Couple. Great post and it really made me miss my beater car. I love my new car which is great because I’ll be driving it for about 10-15 more years!
- We rent this life by Frugaling. Great post and excellent reminder. Ownership is a big concept in our society but the reality is that life is fragile and short and has no guarantees. You don’t take any of your stuff with you at the end.
- What if I spent money like 90% of Americans? by Life and My Finances. Interesting post. I totally agree though… I’d have a lot nicer stuff if I wasn’t dedicated to saving money!
Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m off to read some blogs and leave comments. Leave me a link below if there is a post I should read this weekend!
