At the end of 2019, I was determined to go on a low buy year for 2020 and that still is the goal. Yet as of now I feel like I’ve been failing tremendously, I’ve purchased items, but I have also withheld from purchasing items.I was tell myself do you really need this, will you use it,or will it sit in your closet.The reason for the low buy year was one, I feel I have an issue purchasin items, I love to dress up dont get me wrong but it currently feel just a tad to much.I have downsized but not enough where I feel happy with .The other downside is I love all the stuff I have but I also feel like some of my stuff isn’t what I want.I know super confusing.To keep my self in this low buy year here are some of the rules I plan to follow and hope they are helpful if you are trying to achieve a low buy year your self.
1. buy experiences
2.cut back on eating out to three to four times a month
3.only necesistes when it comes to clothing
4.no random buyings
5. gifts are find
6 repurpose or resell unused items
8 refelct on purchasing and ask yourself is it worth the hours you’ll put in to pay for it.
As I move into the weeks ahead I hope I will be working more thoughtfully towards my money, I also will invest more time on youtube (towards money related and low buy channels for tips and tricks)
Hawaii was a breeze and even though I have return home I want to share Five of my favorite things to do in Hawaii that may be helpful in your next visit to Hawaii or your first visit to Hawaii.
1.Beaches and Beaches.Hawaii has many beaches to offer and the trick is finding a calm secluded beach me and my sister were able to find a few,unfortunately waikiki is a very calm beach but is always super crowded the bummer of waikiki is that even though its busy most of the people are just laying out and not even in the water.Another crowded beach is kauliki beach which is beautiful but parking is a tad hectic but worth it. My sister and I went over to Waimanalo beach which was perfect. Easy parking, good location and not at all crowded at times it was quite windy but overall perfect just to enjoy to yourself.
2.The sunsets in Hawaii are simply breathtaking,anywhere you find yourself it will take your breath away.One of my favorite was seeing it from waikiki beach right as the sun was going down.
3.Shrimp,Shrimp Shrimp, yes shrimp can be pricey but so worth it.I recommend the north shore but overall you can go wrong with any shrimp you try in Hawaii.My favorite are Big wave and Giovanni, decide weather you want to have an early lunch or a after lunch meal these are the best times to grab shrimp and avoid the long lines.Big Wave is delicious but Giovanni’s will always be crowded.
4.Hikes, Hawaii has short, long and medium types of hikes the views of these hikes are def worth exploring. The views overall are worth the body getting out there and breaking a good sweat.My favorite ones a pillbox,moana falls, and diamond head.
5.Moana center, yes I know it may sound a tad lame because it is a mall but its huge and there are endless things to find and you can never go wrong plus when traveling I’m sure you’ll find yourself either needing another bathing suit or simply getting some snacks at target.
It’s been a hectic times since the last time I’ve wrote geesh.I’ve wanted to write but it’s been hard to write at work when they’ve blocked wordpress boo I know.I can still type, email myself and then copy it and post it thru my phone but yeah its been one of those times.I’m currently have castor oil thru my lashes as I’m trying to type this blog post.
So I decided to coach the girls powderpuff team at my school and yes that took a lot of time from my life it also brought me closer to him. I finally saw him after what had seemed over a month.I saw and yes I still have feelings for him and miss him dearly.He helped me get some football stuff figured out and it was great to see him but also very hard.I miss him and I still love him and its tought because we aren’t together.
Our communication has been there but I’m also scared because at the end of the day we aren’t together and I fear the unknown.Football was kicking my butt i was tired and the long days where getting to me you see.I was timed out but it all worked out my girls lost but thank goodness my co-worker helped me out in the end.Last saturday my sister and I went to the pumpkin patch it was cool but god it made me miss him but its those moments where I wish I could share them with him.Anyways we enjoyed a new pumpkin patch and ate pizza it was divine.
The game was yesterday,i was honored educator for work and yes the day was hectic however I’m very grateful for the experience and being picked by my student.yet another week where my obession with my wieght has been there I know since he’s been out the picture the obession has been there.In addition i know I don’t eat as well or simply don’t eat.I’ve also stressed and stress ate and honestly not rested like I would like to.
So game was yesterday we lost but it was a good game so i thought.i wanted to see him so i did i wanted to hug so i did.It didnt go as I planned but overall it I did see him and i did hug him.I miss him but as of right I just know things are like they are and I’m accepting that.When I saw him yesterday it was kind of a realtiy check of how things are.
This weekend was chill I spent saturday legit doing errands, from cleaning my room to clearing out anything I needed to do.I decided to do my hair wear relaxing clothes and feel like a person.The weather is starting to get chilly so its always hard to gage what to wear.It will be warm mid-day then in the evening its super chilly.I spent Saturday kinda of thinking of the football plays I need to come up with for the upcoming Powderpuff game ahh.I did an early Saturday workout to get my day kick started the workout was overall okay,workouts haven’t been there best but I’m still pushing.
Sunday I was looking forward to dinner with my cousin and sister.I spent the day getting ready for dinner and our painting pumpkins.I think My cousins pumpkin turned out great.We had dinner I enjoyed the dinner the food was overall okay just okay.Sigh I’ve been so exhausted that’s its crazy that I’m currently laying on my couch trying to finish this blog post and I’m falling asleep watching friends, I’m so exhausted.
