Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


ONE.

My Budget Template on Etsy.  I know some people only read certain posts of mine, so in case you skip the monthly plan with me posts, you might not have seen the budget template I now offer.  I do a zero based budget, where you give every dollar a job in the month and keep sending things to bills and savings until you're down to 0.  It's a great way to keep an eagle eye on your money.  So I created a spreadsheet to help with that, since I'm not great at math.  This calculates the numbers for you, including the percentage of income each category is.  I plan on having a video next week showing more detail about how to use it.  You can get it on Etsy for $4 and it's an instant download that works with Excel or Google Sheets (which is free with a Google account, just like Gmail.)

TWO.

3% on Netflix.  Season 3 of this comes out tomorrow and I'm so excited for it.  If you haven't watched, then definitely catch up on the first two seasons!  It's a Brazilian Netflix original and the basic premise is that there's a future dystopian society where everyone lives on the inland, which is incredibly poor.  When you turn 20, you're eligible to compete in 'the process' where only 3% of the best candidates are chosen to then go live on an island called 'the Offshore,' which is a rich, ideal society with no crime or hunger, etc., but you can never come back and never see or contact your family again.  The first two seasons then follow the current group of 20 year olds competing in the process, with a few main characters of course.  Since no one from the Offshore contacts the inland again, these kids (and thus the audience watching the show) really have no idea what to expect as the process goes on or what happens at the end.  I love it, it's so good.  I will say that it's not for everyone because being a show that was originally filmed in another language (Portuguese), it's been dubbed over in English - not subtitled.  Which means the sound doesn't match the mouth movement on the actors when they show their faces, which drives John totally bonkers.  It doesn't bother me, but if you know that makes you nuts, skip this one.  I don't even think it's that bad compared to other dubbed over shows, so at least watch the first episode and decide.

THREE.

Crave Dog Food.  A recommendation from Hawkeye.  I just leave her dry food out like a cat because she doesn't overeat.  Probably because we give her so much people food.  I've tried a couple foods in the past and liked them for various reasons but the last time I went to go buy her normal food, they were out of it.  This got really good reviews so I decided to give it a try and she loves it.  When you switch a dog's food, you're supposed to do it gradually, like putting 1/4 new food with 3/4 old food and work your way up from there, so their stomachs can get used to the change.  Yeah, she went into the bowl and rooted out all the new food to eat first and left all the old stuff.  And she ate it as soon as I put it in the bowl, didn't wait around to eat when she felt like it, like she usually does.  So clearly, this is a doggie winner!
