Have 10 No-Spend Days. After such an expensive April, I really want to take back control of my spending.
Get up-to-date with my administrative work and invoices. This means following up with unpaid invoices, and figuring out if the system I’m currently using is the best one for me. Also, I need to answer the backlog of e-mails I have sitting in my inbox.
Help as much as I can with the book launch. Since the end of November, I have been working with an amazing group of Canadian personal finance bloggers. We have written a book, and we are looking at hard copies becoming available at the end of May. :) My lips are sealed until that time, but I’m very excited about it!
Send one box of stuff home to Vancouver. We leave Germany at the end of July, and I expect that I will need to send two boxes of stuff home. My goal is to travel extremely light during August (we have a full travel schedule planned), so it won’t hurt to get a jump start and ship home stuff I don’t use as well as my winter clothes.
