nudging myself to a new normal

November 10th, 2019 at 03:43 pm

I am trying to see the good in this job regardless of how boring it is.
I was upset about the decrease in savings partly because I thought some of the money was coming from a different source ( a joint account with DH)
I realize that this is not worth getting worked up about in comparison I am but should be MORE grateful that I have great flexibility in re-saving that amount etc.
I just need to refocus and plan for other items.
I am trying to think up Christmas ideas that have meaning not just gifts for gifts. I have been trying to get people experiences instead of stuff. I have 3 very different groups to buy for so it makes it especially hard but can search for ideas in my downtime at job.

    Sounds like a healthy outlook.

    I think giving experience gifts is a great idea. People always have enough stuff. Experiences last a lifetime and don't take up space and collect dust or end up in the trash or donation pile.

    Obviously, you need to know the types of things people enjoy but it can be anything from a restaurant gift card to sports or theater tickets to a certificate for zip lining. The possibilities are endless. Even things that aren't really experiences but more practical like a book of car wash coupons can be better than another knick knack that will just sit on a shelf somewhere.
