October 2023 Goal Progress


I did a lot better of reading in September, but I’m still considerably behind! 34 out of 50. 16 books left to reach my goal.

Everything else was fairly good for keeping on track!

Read more about my 2023 Goals.


I’ve been trying to find my stride again. I am interested in everything, but I haven’t been feeling creative. I also haven’t been in a shopping mood either.

LTK: October had 323 clicks and $117.36 in open commissions.


I really have been uninspired lately, but I have managed to write six. I was working on our Venice itinerary, but got bored with writing about Rome or Naples. I keep getting in my own way.

Here’s what I shared on the blog this month:

  1. September 2023 Best Sellers
  2. Fall Outfit Inspiration | Meghan Markle Edition
  3. Cute Halloween Disney World Shirts
  4. 2 Days in Venice Itinerary (+ Tips & Day Trip Options!)
  5. October 2023 Reading List – 6 Books
  6. and this Monthly Life Update: October 2023!

October 2023 Side Hustle Income


My goal this month was to get a pile together for Goodwill. I pushed my Poshmark sales by lowering prices several times. I tried to “clean out” my closet on almost everything.

I took the items to Uptown Cheapskate for the first time and I also took the items to Plato’s Closet to help sell some things. My side hustle income is only from clothing sales, which is better than I expected.


I finished two programs this month: Harvest Hustle Walking and Running Challenge.

Total Miles: 39.62
Total Hours: 10:30:13
Total Workouts: 23
