While I hope to share a few of my own tips and tricks along the way, I’m always finding great ones across the web (oh, and as a journalist myself, I’ll always, always include an author’s byline below!). Click the links below and bookmark for later (I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to tips like these, and it’s a great way to file everything in one place!):
From The Everygirl: “What Happened to Hobbies,” by Daryl Lindsey. I am so guilty of ending my evening with every intention of diving into a new book, but social media always gets in the way (in fact, I came across this piece linked on Instagram when I was scrolling through the app instead of settling into bed with After You– which I scored for 50 cents at my local thrift shop after almost buying it at full price, I’d like to note!)
From DC Girl in Pearls: “Buffalo Roasted Chickpea Wraps,” by Lauren Anne. Ok, I love chickpeas and am always in need of good desk lunches—I work in the suburbs without all of the usual lunch joints in close proximity—so I am hoping to whip up Lauren’s nutritious, affordable meal idea sometime soon!
From The Stripe: “So You’re An Aspiring Cat Lady?” by Grace Atwood. One of those candid columns that’s so good that you immediately have to text the link to your best friend (or at least that’s what I did!).
From Gen Y Girl: “7 Easy Ways Millenials Can Save Money Right Now,” by Kayla Buell. Whether you’re saving for an upcoming vacation, paying off debt, or just trying to spend smarter as a whole, these practical tips are great to keep on file.
From Bustle: “10 Successful Women Share Their Morning Routines,” by Genevieve Fish. Curious as to what the other half does before breakfast? More on the morning routines of Victoria Beckham, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Anna Wintour, right over here.
