Save. Spend. Splurge.

In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: How much money do you need right now, today, to retire and never work again?

1. What’s your number?

This simple exercise of naming your number, can help you shape your entire plan for retirement and working.

2. Sharked Out

Little Bun is in love with his new comic book – When Sharks Attack with Kindness – it’s so easy to read, fun, wholesome and heartwarming. We already own Visual Hug 1 and Visual Hug 2 which he loves re-reading and pointing out funny comics to me.

3. Cool Science

I want to try some of these but I also don’t because it looks like a mess and a waste of resources.

4. Summer Pom Poms

I wish I could imagine a summer outside because I would absolutely pick up this straw bag with pom poms made by Brunna.Co, an independent designer, or this version in blue with a great print by Lolas Bag.

5. Vegan Fudgy Brownies

I have no words. I want to try this recipe, if only I was no longer sensitive to cocoa because that’s apparently the cause of my migraines. Could I just leave out the cocoa?

6. Statement Rock

I am thisclose to also buying this incredible statement ring with a gorgeous green rock. It’s ultra mega large, right up my alley.

7. Virus-free

This small Italian town spared by the virus, attracts the interest of scientists … People are saying they could be immune, but I think it is more this:

We are like everyone else,” … “Our population has just been very loyal in respecting the [lockdown] precautions.” and they’re full of senior citizens, which makes them very careful to stay vigilant and healthy.

Why are we always trying to pretend there’s a magic bullet? There is none. The cure is hard work and vigilance.

8. Shawl

I am a fan of shawl blazers, and this one by Hilary MacMillan looks so cosy and perfect.

    When I first started learning about investing around a decade ago, I set a number for myself to work toward. Now that I actually reached that number, I changed it to a higher one after imagining the possibilities that come along with having a little extra (plus, I still enjoy my job for the most part). Have you found yourself moving the goalposts as well or has your number stayed static the entire time?

      I move them every year. It depends on how soon I reach them and whether or not I get a contract. Then I up the goal again. Otherwise, I tend to just let things be as much as I can because if I really focus on something I can go to extremes and that’s not healthy.
