Episode 4: Low Income Budget Series – February Budget + January Fail

One of my goals for January was to consistently create content for Chaotic Critic and I am so proud that I have ben able to do so. One of my favorite series that I’ve created here on the blog this year is my Low Income Budget series. I’ve been bringing you all along on my journey to financial freedom. It’s easy to write down my bills, but it’s skill and discipline to not only pay but to keep expenses at a minimum. Let’s not even get to savings.

This post is all about my February budget and what I failed at in January.

How I Faith Plan

For the past 31 days I have been committed to reading the book by Rick Warren, What On Earth Am I Here For. When I first heard of this book it was during a Michael Phelps interview in 2016 about his road to recovery and journey back to the Olympic team. Ever since then I’ve been wanting to read it and I made it a priority at the top of his year.

Here we are at the end of the month and I have 11 more days of reading so I wanted to share my tactic in reading along with updates to my wellness planner.

How to Make a Vision Board That Really Works – Episode 1: Self Care Saturday

I am on a roll with the various series on my blog this year which is truly the best way to divide my content. This series is all about self care.
