august 2021 - monthly accountability post

I've been doing pretty poorly at blogging over the last year. Frankly, I just haven't been doing much with the pandemic and all, so I haven't had much to say. However, as I venture out and do some things (vaccinated, of course), I want to get back into it. I decided to start a monthly accountability post to keep up a routine! I did away with my other frugal blog, so everything will be housed here on LB again. It was just too much to keep up with! So here goes!

Goals Met // Since this is my first accountability post, I didn't have any goals for August set in stone to start!

Decluttered // cleaning supplies to which I was allergic - to a friend, several orders on Poshmark and Mercari, scrapbook and planner stickers, nail polish, magazines, and a flat sheet I won't use - Freecycle, a barely used corkboard, an unused decal, a plant and cuttings, and a lunchbox - FB marketplace 

Books Read // Malorie by Josh Malerman, Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (audiobook)

Money Saved or Made // I redeemed my Amazon First Reads book, made $9.15 via Ibotta*, received $2.15 from Google for the Google+ class-action lawsuit, used coupons and Verizon Up gift cards for dog food

Ways I Reduced Waste // continued using reusable cloths for cleaning, purchased recyclable glass packaging when grocery shopping

Listings Posted // 31
Listings Sold // 6

Goals for September // make my own pasta, double my amount of listings posted, finish five books, build more inventory for my business

We'll see how this goes!
