Act 299

Experiment first

Part of what I learned is that there are many decisions to make when you’re changing your relationship with money. There are no easy answers and no quick fixes. But there are answers and there are fixed. To find the ones that work best for you, experiment first.

Today, for example, I had to figure out a halloween costume. Wasn’t sure my idea would work so I bought a fraction of what I needed to try it out first. I’ll often do this with recipes too. Try a small batch and see if it works.

I’m going to try an online store to see if some of my vintage finds command an attractive price. No big deal, just try a few items and see.

By experimenting and failing or succeeding quickly, you can move on to what works and leave behind what doesn’t, risk little and still feel as if some progress is being made.
