    I donated to a Girl Scout door-to-door campaign. I can’t think of an easier way to give in the community!

    I wake up early morning to walk my frenchie out for at least 30minutes. Luckily these days have been sunny and I enjoyed staying outdoors with her. During the weekend, my wife also joined and had breakfast outdoor, which was so relaxing.

    I am making the time to reflect on the items I want to buy, rather than buying them the moment I see them/ am influenced - I started keeping a list that I will look at again at the end of each month and decide if the item is still a want/worth the purchase. This will not only help me save money but will help in reducing my consumption habits.
