In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Where this is how much you should spend on a wedding gift

Okay. Big question now. How much should I spend on a wedding gift? My rule of thumb is at a minimum, $100 a person and then more if they are closer to me….

If this wasn’t a boatneck sweater I’d be all over it. I LOVE the navy blue brush stroke print, the casual feeling of it and it is under $50

Let’s start by dismantling the Old Boys Club from its source, and getting rid of these mens-only exclusive clubs that women are not allowed to be a part of. This just BREEDS more and more salary and gender inequality at the root of the most elite colleges.

I own a similar bracelet from Fernanda Sibilia that is in copper and I get stopped by both men and women to ask me where I bought it. It makes me want to buy this wrapped Good Fortune ring to go with it..

I find this article about men and women in Japan quite disturbing to say the least. I am not judging them, but it is scary how a whole culture can turn inward and suddenly be so extreme. The pressure these children must face is also no joke.

I can see why this fur trim sweater went on sale. Gag.

Bozoma St. John should have been in the Business, not the Style section for being a badass C-suite boss. Honestly speaking, women are relegated to “style” and “homemaking” but men are in “money” and “business”. What kind of #%*) is that?

I hemmed and hawed over these Rag and Bone Harrow Boots and in the end, am super glad I picked them up. They are very cool with the wrap leather strap around the ankle and are a nice change from my tried and true Club Monaco Brooklyn staple boot that is no longer on sale (it doesn’t even get restocked yearly).

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, 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 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.

    Most of the items above are sold out and don’t show the item at all. I click to see a picture of the item–it’d be cool to see photos of the items you’re talking about in future posts 🙂
