Happy Election Day! Or maybe judgment day. It's hard to be sure. Either way, I voted (if not just to make the text messages and incessant phone calls stop, ya know?) I don't have any snazzy transitions in mind, so let's just jump in. This year has been the most peculiar and disturbing I've ever… Continue reading It’s November 3rd!
The passion project I've always wanted to start (a podcast) has come to fruition! It costs $1 to download but that's mainly to screen out the bots or whatever. If you listen and decide you'd like your dollar back, listen to it again! I'm v proud of this. If you still want your dollar back,… Continue reading Introducing Burgundy Betch: The Podcast
Hello friends new and old, This year has been... well, y'all already know. I started out my year all ready to budget and vacation and love and live. And it all came to a screeching halt somewhere around March. I'm willing to bet you've had the same feelings and conversations I've had... wow, it's already… Continue reading Bringing back the Music
I decided not to post last week since I had bronchitis and didn't do much of anything or spend any money. This week though, phew. I think I'm making up for a tame start to February!

Like, almost as much as I spend on all of my housing costs. In January, I spent $562… Continue reading 1 Month of Less
It's week three of the year of less, and to be honest I slipped up this week. I bought the new Sims 4 expansion pack (Tiny Living, btw) AND ordered food twice! And one of the times it was Dominos! I spoke too soon last week, I s'pose. I talked myself into these things because… Continue reading Week 3
I'm not gonna lie, this is way easier than I expected. While Rudy's surgery hurt my wallet, I was super proud of myself for having the funds on hand to be able to pay for it. In the week since, I think most of the money I've spent has gone to Lyft rides and groceries.… Continue reading Year of Less: Week 2
Already a week into the new year, and my shopping ban is in full swing! I've set a budget and have tracked every expense, so I'd say things are off to a great start. Y'all, I have only purchased coffee once! I was thinking this would be the hardest habit to kick, but it's been… Continue reading Year of Less: Week 1
