Three on Thursday

This post may contain affiliate links.

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.


Wit & Delight Stay on Track Desktop Notepad.  If you're a 'week at a glance' kind of person, you will love this little desktop notepad.  It has a column for each week day, a space for projects and notes, and a column for home life, to make a to do list there.  It's ideal for an office environment,  particularly if you work on multiple projects at once, which is what I use it for.  We do commercial real estate and there's about 6 properties closing in a given month, so that's a lot to keep track of!  I do utilize the Outlook calendar and the task list that comes with it, but there's still something about writing it down on paper that I prefer.  It helps me remember things, and I like seeing everything for a particular week laid out on one page, including all calls and due dates.  There's also an extended line of similar products, if you think a different organizer/planning system would work better for you.


Republic of Tea Brambleberry Black Tea.  One of my all time favorites.  Sadly the original Downton Abbey tin isn't available but the tea is just as good without it.  And it feels fitting for end of summer/heading into fall.  Like harvesting all the berries.  Republic of Tea has very good teas in general, so if there's a different flavor that jumps out at you, I would say try it.  Brambleberry just happens to be my #1!


Til Debt Do Us Part Episodes on YouTube.  This show is a few years old (I think the last season was 2017?) but I never watched it while it was on tv so my first time viewing the episodes has been on YouTube and obviously I binge watched tons of them once I found the playlist.  The basic premise is that financial expert Gail Vaz-Oxlade helps a couple make a plan to get out of debt.  She shows them the black and white numbers of their spending to explain why they're in debt (it's shocking the number of people who have no clue how much debt they have or how they got it), puts them on a cash only plan, makes them figure out a budget and a plan for the future, and puts them through a relationship rescue challenge since money problems/fights are the number one cause of divorce.  If they make it successfully through this one month boot camp of hers, they get $5,000 to pay down their debt.  I love all things frugality so it's really no surprise that I love this show.
