Shopping Ban Update and May Goals

April 30, 2018

Let me just tell you now - April was not a success.  Not for being healthy, not for goals, and not for the shopping ban, which I suppose is to be expected but still frustrating.  Hoping May will be a lot better, though I'm not going to try to plan too much stuff and over-exert myself.


Of course, let's start with the April update.

Thoughts and Life

April 20, 2018

I haven't posted much this month, and I am not at all sorry about that.  Only 5 posts in fact, when I usually hit at least 15.  It's not due to lack of ideas or even lack of time.  I just don't feel like it.  I'm sure that's not a surprise, given my life outside blogging lately.  It's been pretty busy, what with the wake and funeral and extended family around, and mostly - I'm still so angry.  And frustrated, tired, not sleeping much.  Jumping right back into blogging about organizing the laundry room and saving money on restaurants in Chicago just felt sort of tedious and fake.  I just decided to take pretty much the entire month off from this instead.

Swagbucks Update

April 7, 2018

All throughout April you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or PayPal cash.                        

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus! Here's how:                       
1. Sign up using this link                       
2. Earn 300 SB total before May 1st, 2018. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it!                       
3. That's it. It's super easy, and I use it myself.  I usually get the PayPal cash but at the moment I've been redeeming points for Uber gift cards so I can still get to and from all my favorite street fests this summer without violating my shopping ban.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  You can also join me on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.  In addition to minimalism and organizing, I love all things 'real life' so use the hashtag #notentirelyperfect on social media so I can see your beautifully unstaged life.  On the top of the side bar to your right, you can follow me on Bloglovin or subscribe via e-mail to be alerted to each new post.

April 2, 2018

I'll have some thoughts on things later this week but I'm not willing to get off my shopping ban and goals update schedule, because schedules and routine give me peace of mind.  So here we are, April.


Of course, let's start with the March update.
