I realized that everything I loved about Prime was really just making me spend more money on things I didn't necessarily need. As someone on a budget, I needed to make a decision that almost seemed unthinkable. I had to break up with Prime.
Everywhere we look nowadays it feels that there are options for the ‘side-hustle’ – the supplemental source of income that helps cushion the monthly budget. Having many choices, coupled with the stress of budgetary restrictions, it can feel overwhelming.
While this time of the year is probably my favorite, it can also be overwhelming especially when you are a ‘giver’ like me. There was a point in time where I felt obligated to try and get everyone something and to cross off everything on my list. However, that started to become stressful mentally and financially!
