Financial Roundup – Changes Edition

I have so much change coming up in my life, that it’s completely overwhelming.

First of all, in three weeks, I’m getting married. I already live with my fiancé, so that part won’t be a huge change, but on top of my upcoming nuptials, I’ve also decided to take a position with a different organization. I will start the day I get back from my wedding. On top of all of that, my work location in the meantime has changed. I am now within walking distance from home (freeing up the car for my fiancé to use, saving us about $15/day in gas) for the next few weeks.

It’s all a bit overwhelming all at once, and it sure keeps me busy, between wedding planning, all of the appointments I have so I can use my benefits before I leave, packing up an old office (temporarily), wrapping up 2.5 years of work at my current organization. It’s a lot!

I do still have time to send a little love to my fellow bloggers, though.

At Million Dollar Ninja, we learned how to DIY a phone screen replacement. I didn’t know this was something that could be DIY’d!

At Debt Busting Chick, there was discussion about side hustles and sweet spots to be successful. I don’t know if I have a sweet spot so much as the drive to make money in a lot of different ways.

Liz at Budgeting For More wrote 10 Ways to Get Noticed at Work. These are, of course, ways to get noticed in a positive way, and they do work!

I’ve really enjoyed Jon at Money Smart Guide‘s posts about his niche site, and he gave us an update this week. It’s good to see the progress of other bloggers side projects.

As somebody who is getting married soon, I enjoyed Brock’s post about attending weddings at Clever Dude. I couldn’t imagine inviting somebody I didn’t know fairly well to my wedding, but I know that isn’t standard.

Andy from Art of Being Cheap posted about energy vampires and how much they cost; it’s a good reminder to make sure you unplug things after you use them!

At Work to Not Work, Zee discusses sewing machine moments (more commonly referred to as a-ha moments).

I prioritize eating healthy, good food. It’s important to me to stay healthy and I can afford the good stuff. Wise Dollar gives us some tips on how to eat healthy on a budget. 

I LOVED this post at Savvy with Saving about not letting money define you. It’s a must read.

Debt Debs lists some awesome personal finance advice. My personal favorite from her list is paying off the mortgage in 15 years, followed closely with not buying so much stuff.

  1. Thanks so much for the mention! Best of luck for the wedding and new job. I don’t blame you at all for being stressed out. It will fly by before you even realize it! Have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks for the mention!

    My wife and I are in a state of changes as well. She is looking to change her career and that might affect my ability to stay at home and blog full time. We toyed briefly with the idea of looking at a new house, but decided that with so much up in the air right now, now isn’t the best time to start looking for houses.

  3. I heard that there are three things you should never do at the same time: Move, start a new job,and get married. You’re doing two of them within a short period of time! 🙂 My wife and I actually did all three within 3 weeks – it was hectic, but when it was all over, it was a HUGE relief. Congrats on your upcoming wedding AND your new position – exciting times!!!
