2020 Goals

Hello new decade of opportunities. A cliché post to start the New Year. For me however, this goal setting period has become one of my favourite times of the year. 

The New Year seems to create a great divide when it comes to people’s attitudes. I observe people to be either in a post Christmas slump or in a very excited way about the possibilities of the new year.

The 2019 Wrap Up

Howdy All,

I did that thing again, where I forgot to post. As much as I love blogging and still love the same interests (minimalism, finance, goal setting, etc.). I don’t have as much time as I used to for all of it. To put it simply, Brisbane is busier. Update, I love it here. It feels much more suited to where I am at in life.

I am starting to reset and prepare for a New Year. As part of this, I reflect and set my goals for the next year. As I often write majority of this down, I thought I would share this with you. I will have a busy last week of 2019, with my family coming to stay with me (eek, I am so excited!).

It may not of been the year I expected, however it was the year I neededBig mood for 2019.

April Goals Check-In

Happy Saturday!

It’s official! I’m on holidays, hooray!

I’ve been hesitant to write this post, as I completely missed most of my marks in the month of April, thus probably explaining the late post. However, as I hinted at in Breaking My Own Rules, I think it’ll be worth it in the end!

The Rule of 2

Evening,

In a world where spending money has become easier than ever, I ask you the question, what rules, mantras or guidelines do you have in place to ensure you don’t end up with a debt disaster?

Personally, I told myself to stick to the rule of two. I told myself the maximum number of debts I could manage was at most two. Anything more than two debts and I would be living above my means or living in a state of constant worry.

Well, at least I thought I stuck to this rule. Until more recently, when I took a closer look at my relationship with money. I now realise, I had a lot more than two debts at any given time. From the age I could apply for debt, I’ve turned to debt solutions for my wants and needs. In hindsight, I don’t regret this. It has helped form a good credit score.

At the mere age of 22, I have dealt with the following debts:

What’s in a Name? // Why I Started This Blog

I umm’d and ahh’d about the title of this blog.

You see, sloth renovations started as a hashtag for my personal Insta posts after buying my first home. It was an inside joke between myself and my parents, that we would eventually complete the renovations, just at a sloth-like pace. The simple #slothrenovations, changed to a Insta page after realising a few people were interested in the transformation. On the Insta page, I’d made began to make note of the debts I managed and the goals I had set, but predominately tried to stick renovations, despite long periods of time between small renovation projects. The problem is minimalism, personal finance and goal setting are all things I love TALKING about, they aren’t something you can always photograph. I was on the wrong platform, so I moved to Facebook. However, something about Facebook still didn’t feel quite right… so the day after I created the Facebook page, I created this blog.
