Happy Friday! I hope you’ve stayed cool this week. Here’s what I was up to!
How I Earned Money This Week
We took a few days off from our Airbnb this week so we’d have time alone in the house to regroup after vacation. But we now have a new family in the space, and they’re staying for 5 nights.
I sold a one-time client session scheduled for next week!
How I Spent Money This Week
On Sunday, we went to a surprise birthday party for a friend at Bar Roubaix. We drank a little bit too much and spent about $60, but the plus side was that we had cash left over from our vacation, which we used to pay for the booze.
After the birthday party, Dan and I went to Target and bought a few sets of curtains. We bought sheer white curtains for the dining room, which have already spruced up the space quite a bit. And we bought light gray blackout curtains for our bedroom. I don’t know about you, but I need pitch dark at night, and I’m excited to hang these curtains!
I made a big investment in my business this week. I joined the Signed course with Leah Neaderthal so that I can grow my business and get more clients. We had our kickoff call on Tuesday and I’m so excited to see where this course helps me take my business!
We finally gave in and bought a weed whacker for our yard.
We made some wedding purchases this week too. We bought envelopes and stamps, and officially ordered our invitations! We also paid for event insurance for our wedding, which will protect us and our vendor if anything happens at the wedding.
What I’m Writing
This week, I revisited the topic of weddings. But this time, I talked about how you can stay on budget while you’re a wedding guest. Check it out!
What I’m Up To
- The July Money Circle meetup is next Tuesday! We’re bringing in expert Claudia Russell to talk about investing basics. We are sold out (!!!), but you can add yourself to the waiting list in case anyone needs to back out.
