It's time for a spring clean!
April 07, 2021
Spring is coming! Once a year, it's a good idea to look over your life and give everything a little tidying. To help you on your way, our Founder shares her to do list for her own little life audit.
1. Review and change things up!
We all have monthly expenses that are automated such as internet, phone plans, insurance, entertainment services like Netflix or Spotify, app subscriptions, etc. For your first item on your spring cleaning checklist I challenge you to look at all those expenses and investigate if you can save some money anywhere. Maybe there is a better plan or a different provider or maybe your circumstances have simply changed but this is your time to look it all over and you'll be surprised with how much you can actually save.
2. Take a look at your budget.
Continuing on from point 1 this is a great time to also review your own budget. How are you tracking your spending? What changes can you make? What are your financial goals? Reflect on that, review and refocus.
3. Declutter your inbox.
Yep, you read that right and yes, it's going to suck but it will be so worth it. Review all your branded email subscriptions and decide which ones you want to keep and which ones you really need to unsubscribe from because they no longer serve you. As part of this decluttering process we also challenge you to also rethink the way your inbox is organized. Create folders or switch the way your current inbox is set up that could potentially create a better system for you.
4. Book appointments.
When was the last time you went to the dentist? Are you due for a haircut? Do you need to book in a manicure or pedicure? If you have benefits review your policy and maybe schedule massage therapy or get your eyes checked?
5. Documents and receipts.
It's easy for that stuff to pile up. Take an afternoon to look over any important paperwork you have laying around your office or apartment and file them away. Also take some time to organize your receipts and make sure its all neat and organized. One last item to potentially add is reviewing or creating your Will. If you don't have a Will it's a great time to start thinking about one. I know it's not a very nice thing to think about but add it to your to-do list & do it for your loved ones and yourself.
6. Review your home.
Go around your home and make a big list of things that maybe need to be updated and finally get done. This could be something as simple as a burnt out lightbulb that needs to be replaced but make that list and start checking things off. This is also a great time to go through your pantry or fridge and get rid of anything that has expired and anything that you might be missing that you need to stock up on.

Let's do some manifesting
We're always trying to find ways to re-inspire and reinvigorate you and your planning journey. So as we are approach the six month mark of 2021 (WOA) we thought we would help you channel some positivity into the next six months of the year through manifestation. This principle is similar to the law of attraction where a negative thought will produce a negative outcome and positive thought a positive one.
