I admit; I came along way from about 4 years ago. Old habits like impulse shopping and buying up anything I could put my hands on. Now I focus on being content and living within my means. Putting the money towards things of more significance. My goal is to: make sure everything is paid off, transfer my license, and buy my car at the end of the month. Join homeschooling groups and sign up for classes. So what is my budget? Let's take a look.

I'm also will be getting an extra $300 from my bank because I joined them through a promotion. That money will be used towards getting my car. By March, I want to gain some more equipment for practicing homesteading. Some extra interior touches would be nice in my new home. Welp, I will see what I can do before this work at home job ends in April. Until next time...
We all get this exciting feeling when we know when the weekend is about to hit like:
'Finally, I can relax'
'Yay! no work!'
' I can chill and watch some Netflix'
I know I've been there. My weekends used to be like that, but now I find myself being more productive on weekends. You can utilize your free time to work on your passions, organizing, prepping, and learning something new.
Life is too short to be not taken time seriously. Here are a few things you can do to on a Sunday to minimize your time.
1.Wake up early
I know it's hard and you really don't want to do it, especially o a Sunday at that! But, when you wake up early you are able to get a lot more done. You can have more time in your day to do other things that is important to you.
Take this time to meal plan for the week or plan out your exercise routine. If you are homeschooling like I am, plan out your week activities and school plan. You can even plan out what you want to focus on each day and to learn a new skill every week!
Make sure you put time into loving yourself. It doesn't have to be expensive and luxurious. It can be a manicure or listening to your favorite podcast. Whatever makes you feel alive and happy takes part in replenishing your love tank.
Clean out your computer, do some laundry, sort out your refrigerator or throw that pile of junk that been sitting in your closet since the time of antiquity. Trust me, you will feel like a new person ready to concur the world.
5. Spend time with those you love
Take the time to have fun with your children and go to fun places or wild out at home. Go hang out with the bestie that you haven't seen in a while. Go on a date with your significant other. Call your grandparents; she may need someone to talk to. Just go out there and build connections. Be present and enjoy the company of others.
These things require discipline, and I know you can do it. Happy making the best out of your weekend!
