Well… some of them, anyway.
It’s Thursday, which means it’s time to Do 1 Thing.

In September, I received $5,285 in freelance earnings and $236.66 in book royalties (plus $8.42 in music income) or $5,530.08 total.
I do stretch this rule quite a bit—workout clothes don’t count, a tote bag doesn’t count, the like-new Danskos I found at Crossroads ($22.50) didn’t count because, I don’t know, they’re waterproof? Maybe shoes shouldn’t count, period.
Since we’re halfway through the month—a little over halfway, now—it’s time to check in on my earnings and expenses.
Paying attention to your money versus allocating every dollar.
