Back At It

Hi!

It’s been a while, but I’m back. Between getting sick at the beginning of August, work coming back into full swing, and starting to apply for grad school, things have been a bit busy on my end. I feel like I’ve reached a point where the goals that I’ve set at the beginning of the year and the adjustments I’ve made along the way have become habit and second nature. I have gained some perspective for what seems to be major spending triggers while back in Montreal (I’ll go into more detail about that in a future post), but now that I’m back out of the city, there’s a lot less temptation.

I still haven’t bought anything in my no spend categories, I’ve been able to take advantage of experiences as they’ve come up, and I’m still chipping away at using up my stockpile of craft supplies and body products. At this point, I know that I have a busy few months ahead – particularly with so many applications due on December 1st – but I fully believe that I’ll still be able to work out a once-a-week posting schedule (especially with this being a creative outlet for me).

For now to the end of the year, I don’t see there being much change in what I’m doing from the no-buy perspective and for what I’m writing about, with it being mostly reflection pieces and thoughts that come up when different situations arise. Looking much further into the future, for next year, I think I’ll keep the goals as being much of the same thing – but I’ve got time to figure that out.

So, to keep it simple for now, I have 2-3 topics that can easily be fleshed out for this month, and then I’ll see what’s doable with my schedule as the final quarter of the year progresses.

Also, thanks to everyone who checked in with me while I took my unplanned break – I appreciate you sticking around 🙂
