In Budget Roundups, Money

May 2017 Budget Roundup


I saw this and was so happy because I as spending time with Baby Bun (quality time) and loving his little toddler ways.

These are dandelions about to turn into “fuzziesss!!” (as Baby Bun would say)? It is gorgeous. No idea why they’re called “weeds” when I find them quite attractive.

So… this contract will basically have me break even and get back to where I was in 2016? 🙂

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 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.

    It looks like you had a really nice month even with the snafu. Looks like you’re making some nice progress and I definitely wish I had a 2.61% net worth increase 🙂

    Just a suggestion, but maybe it’ll be cheaper for you to buy a ready made responsive wordpress themes instead? They’re pretty cheap and they tend to be just a one-off payment type. The downside is it’s probably more work to do but the design will always be pretty and most likely be the longer lasting solution.

      You’re absolutely right. I will do that.. the next time maybe. Right now it’s custom and that’s it, plus I also rather liked the WP touch look of the mobile theme…
