Hello Sophisticated Spenders!
Your girl Sophisticated Spender is a hustler!
Last week someone said,
“I’m convinced Crystal doesn’t sleep at all!”
Every day of my life is intense!
Here’s my typical Monday:
See if you can keep up!
5:00 am Wake up and sometimes meditate…oh and make the bed (yeah right)!
6:00 am Arrive at work (US Patent & Trademark Office). If I don’t make a smoothie at home, I buy about a week’s worth of smoothies and juices from Aldi or Whole Foods. This week I packed cereal and coconut milk from Trader Joe’s. The most expensive option is a quick breakfast from the cafe at work.
1:15 pm Lunch break! I actually head to the gym and grab a muscle milk or a pressed juice from my Aldi stash.
1:30 pm Teach INSANITY at the fitness center at the USPTO. I love this side hustle because it’s right at my job.
2:35 pm Back to my desk (after a crazy fast shower of course).
4:00 pm Rush to the studio to prep for the sewing class that I teach. I’m a small business owner at Sip and Sew Old Town
6:00-8:00 pm Teach a few cool peeps to sew. (These are real students in the picture below: Kat, Lindsay and Hannah).
9ish Find food (sometimes with students from class too)!
11ish Decompress, clean (ha!), turn on TV and drift off to sleep
I typically don’t spend much on Mondays because I’m so busy. My most expensive breakfast is $7 (cafe). Muscle Milk ($6) lunch. Dinner ($20).
However, I make $35 teaching INSANITY and an average of $200 for the sewing class. This is the only day of the week (besides Friday) that I don’t mind buying food because there’s no way I’d have the time to cook.
I will check in with you on Tuesday!
