"Being debt free is better than spending feels."
This blog will follow the ups and downs of living on a beer budget ($40,000/year) in Ottawa. I am a 20-something girl who came out of 2 degrees with $33,000 in student loans. Through dedication and hard work that was paid off in less than a year and I now own a home. I am not a financial planner or expert, but have developed an interest in my finances and how to make the most of my income. Questions? Email me at email@example.com

Weekly Lunch Recap
Here's what happened lunch-wise this week:
Monday - Sandwich, banana, yogurt
Tuesday - Viatnemese for lunch (veggies with brown rice, 2 spring rolls)
Wednesday - Italian for a colleague's going away lunch
Thursay - Sandwich, salad (at home)
Friday - Pesto Chicken Salad (at home)
I wasn't supposed to go out once this week, let alone twice. That's $20 that didn't need to be taken out of my Entertainment budget!
Good news is that I froze 4 beef stews and 5 roasted butternut squash soups on my day off today, so next week I will NOT eat out at all for lunch.
