Summer 2021, I can see myself walking down the streets of Whistler, BC enjoying a vacation. I long to see my sister, but can only see her when I am debt free. That is the deal with have with each other. I want to also face a fear of heights and go up a gondola ride up the mountain. Visualizing being Whistler and Vancouver will keep me on track of my real goals. Until then I will have to stay focused on what is important spending less and enjoying what I have right now.
Thank you for joining me on this journey to be debt-free. It won’t be easy, and will take me a couple of years to be completely debt free. Having a Limited Spending Month will determine if I can keep it going when the 31 days end. I do want to continue on the Limited Spending longer than this month. It will be nice to keep this until I am debt free. The plan is to buy items I truly need, and right now that isn’t much. I have been on a decluttering kick lately. It is interesting to see how much I have been getting rid of. I hope that other people can benefit from my items. Why keep stuff that I don’t use around the apartment. It is freeing for the mind to release items that I no longer need or use.
Today I did so some spending on groceries and some other items. My Starbucks card has $10.00 added. I do like to sit down and have a nice cup of tea, while reading a book or writing in my journal. I did have to buy some eye makeup remover. Other than that I just bought groceries to last me for a little while. I do want to eat what is in my cupboards, fridge and freezer. It will be nice to see how creative I can be with my meals. I now have $149.00 to last me for the next two weeks. This should cover any extra groceries and a couple of things that I want to do. I do have plans for lunch with a friend. I have no idea where we are going, but I won’t spend too much. I do need to have some fun.
I am so happy to see the sun and warmer weather. It is still winter coat season, but at least in Ottawa, Canada is seeing temperatures above zero degrees Celsius is great. Going on a nice long walk after work allows me to stay away from malls and see my neighbourhood. It also allows me to clear my mind of any stress that is going on around me. I do plan to go on many more walks to get some exercise in during the week. I will continue these walks on the weekends. It is a great way to people watch, while getting out of the apartment.
I feel like my mind has been all over the map with this post, but I still want to share my thoughts with you. I hope that everyone is going well. I will write more very soon as I continue this journey. Until then have a great night/day.
