THE EXPENSES = $4351.04

I did pretty good. Bought a used designer bag, so that added to the budget, but *shrug* overall, not bad.

Hello, my pretty! This is the YSL Sac De Jour in Grey Baby Grain Leather… Normally retails for $2681 CAD, got it for half that (~$1150)….

Look! Fancy!


My top expenses this month was obviously THE BAG above.. Super practical and pretty by the way.

And the other expenses were groceries, household, basic stuff.

I also picked up some Stuart Weitzman secondhand boots because I tried so many cheap pairs like this one from Steve Madden and it looked fine (colour was not my thing) but felt uncomfortable. It needed a lot of insoles, and was not great.

GOING FORWARD – $800K net worth…

My goal this year was $800,000 in my net worth. Will I reach it? Stay tuned for tomorrow….

I was doing a stretch goal of $850,000 but then the markets kicked in and yeah, that is out the window.

Could not really predict that.

All I can do is handle what comes, and just keep working, making money and saving it, stockpiling cash and waiting for things to come up at a bargain.

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.
