Hello! I’m so happy that you’ve found my little corner of the internet, Domestic(ish). 🙂
I’ve always been drawn to DIY projects, homemaking, and creative endeavors. However, I was trapped working in Finance and Analytics. I loved my salary, but I really didn’t enjoy my life. If you’ve ever worked in Finance, you probably understand. While it was nice to have a dual income, I really wanted to leave the 9 to 5 grind and try something new. Lucky me, I have a supportive husband who was willing to help me follow my dream.
Fast forward to this year, where we made the decision to simplify our lives and live on one, modest income. I won’t lie, we made a lot of lifestyle changes. However, I can honestly say that we are both much happier, healthier, and content with our lives now that I focus my time on managing our finances, our home, and our fur babies. I’ve also learned some legit side hustles to fund all my DIY and craft projects!
I want others to have the opportunity to be happy, too! It is totally possible to live well on one income, and successfully renovate a home without spending tons of money. Would we all love to have the designer kitchen with the walk-in pantry? Sure! But most of us, myself included, don’t live like that. I love to find easy ways to save money, get organized, and create a beautiful home. 🙂
So, are you ready to get started? Let’s go! 🙂
I’ll hope you’ll join me on my journey and follow along as I engage in some crazy DIY, crafts, budgeting, side-hustles, and all things home-related. I also hope that my projects can help inspire others to tackle some DIY of their own! 🙂
