In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Women were screwed royally in this pandemic and this is how to help

1. Screwed

1 in 4 women are now considering leaving the workplace or downshifting their careers. As many as two million women could leave corporate America

I am truly not surprised that women have been screwed the most in this pandemic and this is how to help them.

2. Zafu SNAFU

I have been researching for a few weeks now, what to do with my hip and bum going numb (oo rhyme!) while I am sitting on the floor with Little Bun. I finally settled in on buying some Zafu meditation pillows and I picked up 2 of these – one for me, the other for Little Bun. It was cheaper than this set I was looking at but haven’t ruled out completely.

3. Guilt Trip

Speaking of working parents, particularly working mothers, the guilt trip is so real for us and this is how to deal with it. When we found out I was pregnant, we decided that neither of us would ever travel again for work until he went off to school. Neither of us would end up being what we term “working widows” of any sort, and I am glad we decided on that even if it limited the scope of our contracts we could take at the time.

4. Boxing Ring

I have settled I think, on this designer bag to be my next possible purchase, but I want to find a vintage version I think.

5. Overworked

Instagram vintage sellers and their new workdays are 100+ hour weeks. Is it really worth it?

6. Matcha

Everyone keeps asking me what matcha brand I am on right now (I’m disgusted with David’s Tea), and it is this one. I bought 2 more bags to be sure I didn’t run out accidentally.

7. The Row

I love.. LOVE LOVE.. the brand The Row by the Olsen Twins. Their luxe, high end basics are truly incredible (and incredibly out of my price range, truth be told). I am a bit sad if their brand doesn’t make it through the pandemic, because I feel like their clothing is very WFH-friendly.

8. Magic Bag

No need for weighted blankets because you can just pile extra blankets on top of yourself, and go the added step of heating up a Magic Bag like I do and putting it on your chest. It’s like a cheap version of this weighted blanket.

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.
