Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I have a generic konjac sponge. It’s pretty good. I like it. That being said, if you already have a Clairsonic, then you don’t need a konjac sponge.

      I don’t really need a konjac sponge.. in the end, I use the chemical exfoliator and it is awesome.

    I’d be all over that hairdryer as well if I wasn’t choking over the starting price. The post you linked says $400, but I read another that said it would be $500. Maybe Canadian vs. US pricing? As long as my current noisy beast (which is quite in the grand scheme of blow dryers) is running I’ll have to pass. I’ll reassess when this one dies.

    As for the Konjac sponges, it wasn’t a game changer for me. I tried the Boscia charcoal version. It felt like more of a novelty item, but maybe it just wasn’t for my skin. I didn’t notice any difference using it.

      This is when I wish PR people would give us stuff for free LOL

      I think Konjac is definitely a novelty if you don’t use wash cloths… or another exfoliator. I use ORG mineral and that’s the one that really works for me.

    I am thoroughly convinced it is impossible to own a home in New England without being a high-earner/independently wealthy or in construction. All the housing stock is 100-200 years old and historical restoration has long been a hobby of the well-to-do, for good reason (it’s expensive)!

      I believe it. Old houses cost a lot.
