Hi Y'all! I'm A Purple Life


#21

Haha - my college color was purple too actually. It was always fun to show up to a game with purple hair. People would assume I was just THAT devoted. Nope - I just like it :slight_smile:

Thank you! And you can totally pull it off! If you want to dive in I’m happy to provide tips :slight_smile: . I’ve been dying my hair for about 10 years.

Oh I’m late, HELLO!!! :slight_smile: How did you cut spending by 40% and is it easier to save money in Seattle? (I think so hahaha)

Welcome purple hair nice

Hi Fellow Seattleite! A lot of that 40% just came from how ridiculous Manhattan rent is. Getting away from that easily cut most of my spending. I pay 1/2 as much in Seattle for 2x the space. It’s madness and I love it here. The rest of the savings didn’t matter as much, but I changed cell phone providers (go Republic Wireless!), started actually cooking and now walk to work instead of paying for taxis or a monthly metro pass like I did in NYC. It’s definitely a lot easier to save in Seattle! I’m glad you agree :slight_smile:

That’s awesome!! And I didn’t consider myself a blogger until I went public - hence the delay. Happy to be here now though!
