Two Things I Have Learned This Week
1. Working on your goals and balancing the enjoyment of life is a hard combination. I am currently reading a book to help me with this, The Millionaire Mind by Thomas J Stanley Ph.D.
2. I am a clutter-free type of person but lately have realized that family photos in frames make me really happy.
I am slowly buying more photo frames to add to my home. I love being surrounded and seeing those that I love each day. I just have to be careful to keep it to a minimum.
Two Random Tips For You
Ethical and Frugal Tip: Skip buying on a Sunday.
This will help suppliers pay more ethical wages to workers that make the items we buy that is if everyone started putting a ban on spending money on Sundays for shopping that will be a big a pay cut for big businesses to pay attention to the ban.
Spread that message, I heard it on a podcast but I cannot recall the name of who started that idea, but I like it. I might write a post about ethical buying… I want to get there. Goals!
Fashionable Upcycle Tip: Put your earbuds into an old Altoids tin box for your purse.
You can even cover the top by gluing fabric to the lid. I hate when my earbuds get tangled into my purse. To keep them nice and organized I put them in an Altoids box!
Find a quiet place for 15 minutes this weekend to just be alone and breathe. Gather your thoughts and breathe. This will help your heart health, high blood pressure and your sanity. I am not a doctor but it is common sense that a little bit of quiet from chaos and deep breathing will not only soothe your soul but make you feel more in control of your self.
Happy Weekend My Friend!
