August 2017 – Financial Update

I’ve been neglecting the blogging world lately, but since my financial update posts are always the easiest to write, I figure I can pop in today and do this update, even if I haven’t got any other content going at the moment… so here we go… another quick update on my financial goals for 2017.

Random Decluttering

Random_Decluttering

After the difficulty with keeping up with the mins game (and keeping records and tracking everything that I decluttered for that challenge) I sort of stopped keeping track of things that were leaving our house… But… That doesn’t mean things haven’t been leaving…
