Health=Wealth: Cultivating Healthy Work Habits

This post is a continuation of the monthly series I call “Health=Wealth” wherein I focus on cultivating healthy habits. It seems a bit silly to be writing a post titled “Health=Wealth” this week since I have come down with a bad cold that is currently causing an excruciating sore throat. But I should quickly add that otherwise I’ve been doing very well. I’ve been eating … Continue reading Health=Wealth: Cultivating Healthy Work Habits

Mini Minimalist List January 2019

This post is part of my “mini minimalist list” series, wherein I log the stuff I get rid of and the stuff I bring into my home. January had been a time for me to focus on other things, which means I didn’t do any purposeful purging of my accumulated stuff.  However, looking back at my in-vs-out log, it seems that my minimalist habits have … Continue reading Mini Minimalist List January 2019

As I said in my post from last week, December is a bit of an anomaly, not just from a frugal standpoint but from a minimalist standpoint as well. Not only is it very easy to overspend, it is equally easy to over-accumulate stuff — usually stuff that other people give you. While in my previous post, I gave some tips on how to have … Continue reading Mini Minimalist List December 2018: Christmas Minimalism

December 2018: Christmas Frugal Living

On the final Friday of every month, I look back at the little things I did to maintain a frugal lifestyle.  This month was particularly challenging and out of the ordinary because it was Christmas season, which is a notorious time for overspending. Following my analysis in a previous post, which found that using cash cut down our expenses by $1000 a month, I’m happy … Continue reading December 2018: Christmas Frugal Living
