I am more and more in love with my tiny room. Over the weekend I made a small pleasure purchase and now my room smells of the sea. Cannot wait for it to get warmer so I can make splashes in the local beach! Meanwhile I'm curling up in my room as much as I can, devouring as many books, podcasts, and other personal projects, as possible.
Not eating out all the time is hard for a girl whose hobby is to try out as many cafes and restaurants as she can in her city. Limiting down to one or two eating outs a week takes much self control! Planning and budgeting for meals are fun, too, though. This week I'm going through a lamb phase. I've never bought meat before, so it's a cool experiment. It's exciting to watch my eating out expenses going down as the grocery expenses go up. At the end of my first month, I'm saving about $40 a week. Hopefully as I get better at cooking, I'll be saving more. One recipe at a time!
