A New Challenge: Declutter My Entire Life

If you have read any of my past blog posts, you will know that I like to join or make up challenges in an attempt to trick my brain into doing stuff. It is sometimes successful and sometimes not. So, I just keep at it and try to make progress. Remember the time when I challenged myself to make an extra $1000, or when I quit internet for a whole month? Those were the days.

2021 Spending – Less than previous years, at least?

So just for kicks, I went back to compare spending year over year from 2019 (I have solid data as far back as that date). If you have read my blog, you know that I have been pretty good at posting annual spending reports, namely this one from 2019 and this one from 2020.

Happy New Year!

Good Day FI-Seekers (and ACHIEVERS! You know who you are).

Just popping in to say, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Aren’t you glad 2021 is over? I sure am. That said, 2022 isn’t really seeming much better at the present moment, at least not in my neck of the woods. COVID is rampant. It’s frickin’ cold. I am still not FI. Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Here goes! Continue reading “Upcoming FI Activities in the life of T”

SPAR! Habit Building App Review

Hello, Interwebs! Well, if you read my recent post about my recap of “No Internet Month 2019”, you may have noticed me mention a new app I am trying out called SPAR!  My financially savvy friend, who I’ll call MR, introduced me to it. Now I’m hooked! I’ve been meaning to write a review of this app so I thought now might be a good time, since I’m slacking off on all the good habits post-vacation, and I need SPAR! to kick me in the pants.

This Review has been updated to reflect 2021 information and is not sponsored. You are getting the raw, unedited opinions of me, myself and I.

When it Rains…

So pretty much immediately after publishing the article “Saving September” which detailed my challenge to spend only a very specific, planned amount of money for the month, it rained. Continue reading “When it Rains…”

Time Travel

What if you could go back in time and hang out with your younger self?  I listened to myself on the ExploreFI Canada podcast this week which was a bizarro, surreal time travel to 1 year ago. At that time, I was 8 months into my FI journey. Continue reading “Time Travel”
