Monday 8:00 AM: Up late this morning, no coffee shop. My boyfriend got a Flair manual press espresso maker, so he’s my AM latte maker for the day. $0 9:00 AM: Carpool into the city. $1 10:00 AM: Yogurt at work. $0 12:00 PM: I have a work lunch roulette match today so we go out to an Asian food court. I get a poke bowl because if I’m going to eat out other ...

I’ve been on a minimalism kick this past month. In the month of August and beginning of September, I’ve devoured all types of media related to minimalism and have been cherry picking my favorite aspects of all of them. My boyfriend and his bug for minimizing was probably the main culprit for this. As I’ve been synthesizing everyone else’s thoughts on minimalism, a small more concrete vision has been forming ...

Monday 7:00 AM: Up bright and early this morning to pack up our camp and head out for breakfast. $0 8:00 AM: I’m seriously in love with the pot pie here + terrible iced coffee! This definitely isn’t the cheapest way to go camping, but it works. Our typical camping meal is generally a can of salmon with avocado and mustard on bread or butter lettuce. It’s great because it doesn’t require ...

There are a lot of things I noticed when I realized “I’m an adult now!” A few of them being: I have to work for my money. Money ain’t growing in the form of online transfers from my parent’s bank account anymore. I get excited about mundane stuff. I get excited about buying things like appliances, plants, and organizational things. I get excited when I have no social obligations on the weekends ...

Monday 8:00 AM: Because my boyfriend and I have been playing Agricola constantly in the evenings, we haven’t been going to bed early, and getting up in the mornings have been really tough. No coffee or blogging this morning! $0 9:00 AM: Carpool into SF. $1 10:00 AM: Granola bar at work. $0 12:00 PM: Getting on my shopping this morning. The Stoneworks laundry pods I bought last week are scented with patchoulli and vetivier, ...

I haven’t touched on Finance 101 in a while, but I’ve actually had multiple friends ask me for some financial advice regarding the basics of money management. First up, SAVINGS. I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about what to look for in a savings account since I just preached pretty hard about how my savings saved me. First off, if you’ve been around on the internet and ...

I missed my money diaries from NY, but I was with my boyfriend’s family for half the week fishing in upstate NY so I almost wonder if it’s worth backtracking! This one’s from the past week after I returned to SF. Monday 7:30 AM: Really struggling to get to the coffee shop this morning. I’m crazy tired from our flight last night even though it came in early. I decide to hit ...

Today I want to talk about saving. Specifically how having savings saved my butt. Saving for an emergency is for everyone. I hate to be the person reiterating the age old line, “Saving is for everyone.” But just do it. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t a reason to save. Sometimes you feel that unfortunate thing that happens to other people will never happen to you. Or maybe you don’t know ...

After college, I moved to NYC and got my first job doing allocation work in corporate retail. My starting salary was $50k a year. My job entailed entering all the things we wanted to order and tracking the orders. Exciting, right? About 8 months into that job, I actually switched to a different retailer and started software engineering making the same salary. After 2 and a half years with only ...
