Hello Sophisticated Spenders!
I hit a pretty huge milestone in October…
I paid off my car!
I January I owed $17,000 ($16,973) to be exact. And today I owe $0!
Feels amazing. Now I will apply my old car payment to the mortgage on my Chicago duplex!
Let’s jump right into some numbers.

October in a nutshell:
Fell in LOVE! Went to a few new classes at different Fitness Centers on their Open House days for FREE. Paid off my Car! New eye glasses! New Sewing Machine. No more overtime at work so I took a huge paycut. But still came in UNDER budget for the month. Hawaii Vacation (I’m still here as you’re reading this)
Be a total badass!
Start the 5% rule this month (because I totally didn’t start it last month-or the month before that):
I will try to increase everything by 5%: readership, followers, likes and side hustle income.
