What is going on?!?

What is going on?!?

 

So what have I actually been up to?

 

For quite a while you haven’t heard about me and what I am doing, so I thought today would be a good day to tell you what has been going on. 🙂

 

In July I started as an apprentice at JYSK, which is a huge store chain who specializes in “everything to a good nights sleep”

 

Being employed with them has this far been amazing and I have been incredible lucky to be in a store with all young people (since it makes them more understanding and easier to talk with)

Having a job (well I guess this counts for all jobs) is actually really hard (school was hard too, since that meant sitting down for 8 hours and then going home to study) but working in a store-especially one like this, means standing up and walking for 8 hours every day. On a normal work shift for me, I’d end up walking 12.000 steps, and that is JUST for work.

 

Because of this I have been very tired (in a good way) and therefore the blog posts have been a little rough and inconsistent. While my body has finally-almost- gotten used to using my body that much, so has my brain with remembering all the amazing things about my workplace.
Since we give advice to everyone who needs to sleep (basically) there is a lot to remember about sleeping patterns, tips & tricks, advice giving, product information and remembering to use all our platforms correctly (that means the programs for ordering products, our order statuses, our information platform and so on)

 

Beside this my boyfriend and I will be moving tomorrow, so there is a lot to think about with work, moving, blog and actually taking time off to just breathe once in a while.

 

Even though this is a very chaotic time, it is also an amazing time, and I try to enjoy every moment possible.

 

I hope you guys have a blast too, and I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Ways to save money  

Ways to save money  

 

Hello everyone!  Today we will look a little at how you can save money. A couple of months ago I was at a still stand, where I earned no money, and got no money, so these have been very handy!

I hope this will help some of you guys out there, who need some ideas to save money.

 

 

  1. Use the library. You can not only borrow books but also movies, games and music, so instead of buying new, try looking for what you need in the library.
  2. Borrow from your friends or family. This can apply to almost anything, as long as you take care of their stuff, you could end up saving a lot of money.
  3. When washing clothes. Try washing your clothes in colder water and air dry it afterwards.
  4. Buy in bulk. When shopping for food or supplies, buy big amounts of the stuff that has a very low price (this only applies to things that can stay good for long)
  5. DIY everything possible.
  6. Fix stuff by yourself instead of buying new.
  7. Turn down heat, air conditioner or warm water supplies.
  8. Cancel subscriptions to make sure you won’t be tempted to buy anything
  9. Shop with Ebates. Ebates gives you money back for online shopping you have to do anyways.
    (I haven’t tried this, but heard a lot of good things from bloggers that I follow)
  10. Use the Ibotta app. Ibotta offers cash back on a lot of items, you simply just scan the items and the receipt after shopping, and you will get cash back.
    (Same with Ebates, haven’t used this since it doesn’t work in Denmark)
  11. Cook yourself instead of buying take away-this also goes for packing lunch instead of buying.
  12. Renegotiate your bills whenever possible.
  13. Use coupons whenever possible.
  14. Stick to drinking water
  15. Pretend you make less money than you do
  16. Use cheap transportation like biking and walking or try to carpool
  17. Never go grocery shopping when hungry, and restrain from shopping when in a bad mood (I always, and I mean ALWAYS buy stupid s**t when I shop when hungry)
  18. Cancel gym memberships and make a at-home-gym (often we just pay for it and does not use it)
  19. Don’t save any credit card information on your phone to avoid any impulse spendings
  20. Try growing your own food
  21. Make a list when you have to grocery shop, then stick to it
  22. Put on extra clothes before turning up the heat
  23. Always pay off dept, or it will end up being an enormous amount of money that you owe
  24. Shop at thrift stores
  25. Meet friends at home of for a coffee, not for dinner. This way you won’t be tempted to eat out.

    now a few ways to make a little extra money

  26. Sell stuff you don’t need
  27. Use Achievemint- this doesn’t make a lot of money but a little goes a long way, you earn points by walking, biking, running and more. When you have gotten 10.000 points you then earn 10 dollars.
  28. Use Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you for doing simple things like switching your search engine or watching videos.
    (Like Ebates and Ibotta, I heard a lot of good things about Swagbucks from bloggers I follow (like makingsenceofcents ) without being able to use them because they do not Work in Denmark yet)
  29. Use InboxDollars. This one is a lot like Swagbucks, where you get paid for doing small chores like watching videos and answering surveys
    (You guessed it *look at #28)
  30. Use TaskRabbit. TaskRabbit is a website where you can do different chores for other people, it’s easy and you can work at your own pace.
    (#28)
  31. Invest your money. The stock market can be a complicated thing, but investing your money is one of the easiest ways to earn money, as long as you do not do it blindly. I suggest reading a little about investing before actually doing it, but once you get the hang of it, you can learn a lot by investing your money.

    Money Challenge ideas

  32. For every time you have shopped, put your change in a 2-litre bottle. After filling it you should have at least 400 dollars.
  33. The daily saving challenge. Each day is equal to an amount of money. The first day is 1, second is 2 and so on, after one month you should have 456 dollars saved.
  34. Try the no spending challenge. This means you can only use money on the absolutely most necessary

 

Lastly, here is a budgeting template that I use. I didn’t make it myself, but I still use it almost always. It found it at lightroompresets

If you’re not into templates try downloading an app like GoodBudget to keep track on your budget.

 

Thats all for this time, I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 😊

Things to throw away right now

Things to throw away right now

Well hello there guys. Do you also find yourself sitting in the midst of a clutter filled and confusing space? Well I do.
I am one of those some people call “hoarders” I absolutely HATE throwing things out, and it always ends up piling up everywhere looking horrible and tiring.
So for today we will talk a little about some things you might as well just throw out right now!

 

  • Clothing
    Well not all your clothes. But all the clothes that: doesn’t fit, is 150 years old, has holes or unremovable stains, isn’t your style, or if you haven’t worn it in forever. It might be a good idea to donate the clothes that is still in a good condition, and just toss the rest.
  • Old costumes you’ll never wear again.
    They might be too old, not your style, in bad condition or maybe you can’t fit it anymore, just get rid of it. You should of course keep those you know you’ll wear again.
  • If your accessories are broken and can not be repaired, or if they simply doesn’t fit you anymore, let them go.
  • If your shoes are way to small, or big you might as well just throw them out. This also counts if they are damaged or not your style anymore.
  • Hangers that you don’t use because they are absolutely crappy and doesn’t do their job.
  • Dead bedding.
    Still wearing that old bedding with holes in it? Might as well throw them out and replace them with something that makes sleeping more welcoming
  • Torn up towels.
    Just like with the bedding. Drying yourself in a holed or stained towel just makes bathing a little less enjoyable. Out they go.
  • Old makeup or nail polish.
    There is a reason that both makeup and nail polish has an expiring date. When old, these won’t function optimally, and instead just make a mess, and make putting on either of them a hassle.
  • Hair accessories.
    Throw out all broken items, and all items you know you’ll actually never use. This also goes for hair tools.
  • Unused or unopened gifts.
    Gifts you got 100 years ago, and never opened or used. Might as well give them to someone else or throw them out. No, it never feels good to throw something away that you got from someone, but if you know you’ll never use it, then why keep it?
  • Extra dishware. Somehow I always end up with 15 mugs more than I actually use, and I don’t know how it happens. If you too have a LOT of extras in the kitchen department that you never use, try giving it to someone who needs it, or simply throw it out. Honestly, smashing dishes can be very stress relieving.
  • Cookbooks you never use.
    If you are like me, you might have around 50 cookbooks that you never use. If you KNOW you’ll never use them, just throw them out. You can find the same recipes on the internet in case you need them.
  • Expired food.
    Take a tour in your kitchen and check the labels. If some of it is too old and looks/smells disgusting, give it to the trash.
  • Cleaning products.
    No, it’s not necessary to keep every single cleaning product you have. If you have 5 different dish soaps, and you only use one kind, get rid of the rest!
  • Magazines or catalogs
    I was once hoarding these in large numbers (well I still have a lot). But if you have a lot of magazines just laying around because you might use them some day. Well throw it out. I bet you’ll just forget about it and never use it. And in case you need to find that one thing in that one magazine-ask Google! Mind though, if you have some magazines that you hold dear, of course you can keep them, I did the same. But please throw those out just laying around doing nothing.
  • Furniture you don’t know where to put.
    If it doesn’t fit your style, you don’t have space for it or it doesn’t fit in anymore. Try selling or donating that extra furniture just standing and taking up space.
  • Rugs
    Throw out all old, stained or gross rugs. Get a new one instead if you really need it.
  • Dead plants.
    I’m one of those people who LOVE flowers and greenery… I just don’t have green fingers at all. If you- like me- end up killing some of those plants, just throw them out. They have no purpose anymore. ☹
  • Wall décor that’s just there.
    You got any wall décor that you don’t really like anymore? Why keep them if you don’t think they are beautiful or in some way serving you a purpose? Out they go.
  • Old or unused electronics.
    If you have some type of electronics that you aren’t using anymore, try either selling them away to someone that could use them, or give them to someone you know need it. Mind if you have manuals for any of these too- might as well throw them out, most manuals are online nowadays.
  • Books, DVD’s and CD’s.
    With everything getting more and more digital, who needs DVS’s and CD’s when you can find your music or movies online. You can of course keep those you hold dearly, but the rest of them, that you are just Out with them! Same with books. Keep those you love and know you’ll read again. Donate the rest or throw them out.
  • Old receipts.
    Unless they are from a really big or expensive purchase or you need them for something else, throw them out. You can’t use them anymore anyways.
  • Office supplies.
    Dried out pens, broken colours, dried highlighters or other things like these. Just throw them out.
  • Crafty things you’ll never use.
    Stacks of extra fabric, paper, or craft supplies you don’t see yourself using the next months or so, donate it or give it to someone you know.
  • Old school stuff.
    I just recently got rid of my old school papers, homework and notes. This was after a long battle of “what if’s” because what if I end up having to use them? Well nowadays you can learn anything online, and beside this… well… I hadn’t even looked at them ones since I got out of school (which is around 5 or 6 years ago now)
  • Board games that are broken or you don’t play.
    If you have any board games you never play, or if they are broken/miss pieces. Just throw them out.
  • Broken or unused sports equipment.
    Maybe it seemed cool to play once 7 years ago, but if you haven’t played it since. Time to throw it out.
  • Things you will fix “soon”.
    “Soon” always become later, and then never happens. Got any things you wanted to fix, but never did? If they have been laying around for more than a year, and you didn’t have to use it, out they go.
  • Old batteries or lightbulbs.
    Be attentive about where you throw these out. Most batteries or lightbulbs shouldn’t go in together with your normal thrash.
  • Pet supplies.
    Got any worn out, torn up or unused pet stuff, either donate it or thrash it.
  • Spare change.
    You probably got some coins here and there. Find them all and cash it out. You might be surprised how much money you actually have lying around.
  • Old invitations or cards.
    If you have any invitations from many years ago or old birthday (or other) cards, get rid of them if they hold no sentimental value to you.

 

 

That’s all for this time. I hope this help at least some of you to declutter! 😊

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Merry- soon to be- Christmas

Merry- soon to be- Christmas

Hello guys- I know- 24 days how did I do? Well easy. Exam preparation.
We just finished the last of the preparations and got winter vacation, and boy was I looking forward to that!

I’m doing okay over here, it gets colder and colder but that’s to expect here in Denmark.

I recently moved in one of my great friends apartment, and it has been great until now (hopefully also later 😛 )

Since christmas is nearing fast, I wanted to remind you on some of my old posts from last christmas!

If you still miss to make a couple of decorations, you could make some of these, they were really easy: Christmas decorations

If you want to take another look at last years christmas playlist it is right here: Christmas playlist

I’ll look forward to next time! Even though I don’t post, I’m still thinking about you guys- I love you ❤

Merry Christmas, and I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 🙂

Monthly update

Monthly update

Helloooooo my beauties!!

 

I know, I know, long time no see.

 

So many things have happened since the last time, and I have some amazing news!
My brother is now cancer free! I cannot tell you how relieved we were to hear this, its like a stone just fell from my heart. *happy dance*

Beside this Christmas is near… Well… One month, but still close, so as tradition tells (at least my tradition) some of my oldest friends get invited to a baking sleepover, which usually means baking a shitload of Christmas cookies, listening to Christmas music and just having fun. This year will be year 15 and that’s just crazy to think about. *happy dance once again*

 

Now back to what has happened… School has been pretty tough since we are going into our exam period pretty soon. That means we are going hard on hard, making our own business with (almost) all that it means. We have to make all the marketing, make a floorplan, a model of our shop, have a concept, find people as a group of interest and so on. That means we have a loooooot to do, and already have done a lot.

 

And that is why I once again didn’t have time to write in here. I am SO sorry guys but I am thinking about you every day. Never underestimate how much I love you wonderful beings ❤

 

So until next time, I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 😊
