You’ve in all probability observed a pattern in my posts. A lot of reflection and searching again. However one factor has not modified. One of the simplest ways for me to economize ie have extra to pay towards debt, is to remain dwelling!
The distinction between then and now…is that I’ve a dwelling that’s MINE! And one which I’ve reworked over the previous yr into a spot I really 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 each day there because the canines greet the day.
And plenty of mornings, I’ll pull my laptop computer on the market and benefit from the cooler air.
After which, in fact, it’s an amazing spot to eat dinner or leap within the scorching tub on the finish of the day. I assume, all this to say, that I feel having a spot you like to be instantly correlates to the cash you might be tempted to spend to flee the “onerous” in life. And I’m so grateful to have this house that I really like.
Once I was talking to my fiance at this time, I advised him I used to be planning to discover a good ebook and spend the entire weekend at dwelling. There’s something so liberating about that. No stress to plan, to entertain or actually even to feed anybody. (Gymnast usually works at his serving job all weekend.) How come it took me so lengthy to get to this place? To grow to be 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 pondering that might be a great way to kick off 2023. I ponder what that might appear like. Like to know your ideas.
