One of the things I have to remind myself of is that wanting more “stuff” does not validate my existence. Owning lots of things does not make me a better person. I am in danger of getting trapped in the cycle of more.   The trap of more is dangerous. The trap of having to …
Another week is over. It’s been a strange week for us; we got back from our vacation at the start of the week and have been catching up with things since. We’ve also been having lie ins and generally taking things a bit more easy, which has been nice. I was also saddened by the …
Me and my husband have just got back from an amazing trip in Canada and America (more on that in another post!) and it has made me question some of our priorities and what’s important. This is a somewhat reflective post.   When interested in finance and having multiple goals around money, it’s easy to …
Whilst I was at university, I sold quite a few things on Ebay to create some extra income during the term, including one where I needed the extra money quickly as I’d run out. I did quite well in terms of selling items quickly and getting positive feedback, so I thought I’d share some tips …

Another month is over! I don’t know about anyone else, but 2014 is flying by for us. At the end of the month I like to do a reflection on how the month has gone and reflect on the aims I set at the beginning of the month.   July has been good for us …
My Grandma is a very money-savvy woman. I like to think that I get a bit of my money know-how from her, because as far as I can remember, she’s been good with money. Her and my Grandpa have a comfortable retirement, which has only been made possible by my Grandma’s careful money management.   …
I’m so glad this week is over! I’m finally on a break from work for a bit and I can’t wait to have some relaxing time to do whatever I like. This week has gone incredibly slowly though, mainly because I’ve been waiting for the weekend.   5 things I’ve enjoyed/been grateful for this week: …
