I feel not as profitable as I did last year, but I am rich in family and friends.
This year was tough in many ways. I not only re-evaluated the way I spend and save,( I started saving more change daily, I brought lunch into work more often.)
I am finally having a more active relationship with my finances than I ever had. If I can find some way to stretch a product, or find a new use for it, I do.
Plus, I’ve been participating in clothing swaps and not going to the hairstylist or manicurist as often. Sometimes. It takes a small step to make a big difference.
