While Expense Management is a simple concept to understand it is not always easy to achieve.
Expense Management (EM) is critical to the “success” of every person or business. When COVID-19 hit, expense management moved to a whole new level of importance to allow businesses and individuals to carry on. In an era of post-pandemic inflation, controlling your expenses is more than a wish – it has become a necessity. Continue reading 3 Tips for Expense Management
All my life I have loved to read. I have read a lot – for: university, work, pleasure, and simply information. Sometimes, I become obsessed, and read for hours, trying to learn everything that I can on a particular subject. In fact, I am a “hoarder” of information. I have almost 400 books and dozens of boxes of files in the closet to prove it. Continue reading Thank you Nora Ephron
How much is in your closet? Why are we addicted to “fast fashion”? How much do you really need? What should you do with the excess that you no longer need or want? All of these questions were dancing around in my head as I contemplated a spring closet clean out during our COVID-19 lock-down. I am certainly guilty – just like so many others – of having “too much”. Continue reading An Excess of Clothing and COVID-19
The sun glinted on its shiny surface as I walked on the lake-shore path this morning. It was a clear-plastic Starbucks-type cup sitting on the rocks. It was half-filled with a rose-coloured liquid, . Maybe an iced tea? But the problem was the drinker was nowhere to be seen. It was garbage – left behind. Last week, it was four Tim Horton coffee cups strewn across the parking lot. And a few days before it was an empty bottle from “spring water” left on the walking path. Continue reading Garbage!

It’s Complicated! I stand ready – with my Bagua and my “intention” – to attack the office first. But then I become totally confused! Where should I put the Bagua? Continue reading Where do I Put my Bagua?
I cleared a space at the dining room table to start my journey. I sat down with The Feng Shui Journal – A guided workbook to bring harmony into your Life (by Teresa Polanco). I made myself a cup of mint tea in my “angel” mug (as I know I will need all the extra help I can get). Continue reading Starting my Feng Shui Journey
I need to change my life and I plan to use Feng shui to do it…
I am so glad that you’ve decided to join me on the journey to find my new “Karma”. Anyone who knows me will tell you that it is likely to be a bumpy ride. You may even find it’s a roller coaster, rather than a speedy highway or a tranquil forest trail. I woke on January 1, 2016 and decided my life needs to be different.
