I swear that I am not dead and one of these days, this Tumblr will get back on track.
Please bear with me as I am in the process of extricating myself from one apartment situation and planning to move out on my own. This decision was fraught with anxiety, mostly because I had to figure out if I could afford the rent on a one bedroom without a partner in tow. (New York, New York… yes sir!)
So, can I do it? Yyyeeesss?
Well, okay. Yes.
But it is going to require some serious financial planning on my part. Case in point, The $30 Project is about to get more budget-friendly than ever. In addition to outfit posts and the occasional musical diatribe, you’ll probably start to see a lot more about cooking on the cheap, general repair and household DIYs, and maybe a complaint or two about how I am totally broke! I might learn to knit and/or sew?
Basically, I’ll attempt to cut costs from as many areas of my life as possible and I thought that you’d like to go along for the ride. So far I have figured out that I spend nearly $90 a month on iced coffee, which is not only both horrific and nauseating, but has left me majorly under-caffeinated today.
Thanks for sticking with me and, as always, please feel free to leave suggestions about posts you’d like to see.
Now I am off to listen to the new Fiona Apple album approximately 900x.
