010: Short Episode – Spending Plan Components, KonMari Papers Done, & 6/7 Reading, “Persistence, Not Perfection”

Today is a pretty short episode (about 15 minutes) because my voice is still on hiatus. 🙁 But I’m happy I could do another episode at all!

In this Episode:

01:16 A Brief Talk on Spending Plan Components

I promise, it’s short. But I keep hearing over and over that people are not clear on the four components of a functional spending plan. So I go over it again. The good news is that each time I talk about it, I get more concise.

04:26 KonMari Update

In this segment, I also tell you why this is challenging for a recovering compulsive spender.

The paper nightmare is finally over (well, almost – look at my desk below!) PAPER!!!!! But 99.99999% of my paper has been put into binders. It is truly amazing to behold.

I cannot seem to get moving with the art supplies and stationery. And I can’t imagine why. Hmmmm. Maybe you can figure it out.

AHA, here is where that .000001% of papers I haven’t gotten to yet is hiding – on my desk

My desk is STILL a disaster! Oh, what's that I see? PAPER! Drat and doggone it!
