Weekly roundup: New Orleans, Pack Rats and Chores

by Kristina on September 12, 2014 · 2 comments


Happy Friday Dinks.  Today starts my 10 day vacation.  Yes that’s right as of this morning I am completely work free until Tuesday September 23 and I am so excited.  What am I going to do?  Well I’m going to New Orleans for FinCon and I’m getting ready to move.

Yes we finally found an apartment in a great neighborhood so now we are planning all the logistics of the move.  I’m excited to start decorating and get settled.  One of the biggest mistakes I always make in my life is trying to do everything too fast.  This often leads to excessive overspending.  This time I’m going to take my time decorating.  We are going to buy only the essentials during our moving weekend and then buy everything else little by little over the next few months.  My deadline is to have everything set up by the end of the year.   Does that sound realistic?

Have a great weekend Dinks. Here are some great posts we found this week:

See ya in New Orleans! good thought on giving yourself time. Not worth it to pay extra because of procrastination- been there, done that too many times.

Thanks for the shoutout! It’s weird but my WP is just picking the pingbacks now!

Hope all is well!
