My name is Margaret. I have zero dollars and a lot of ideas. I’m a college senior in upstate New York. I just moved into a shabby white house with my three best friends. We like cute things and when I’m not taking classes I like to fill my house with them. I cook, I clean, I garden, and I decorate. Here’s how I do it with minimal income and time.
Like most people my age, it’s hard for me to determine what exactly “home” means. Is it school? My mom’s house? Either way, I moved out of my Northwoods apartment (farewell, 12 Whitman D!), and I’m officially back in Maine.
It’s only been a few days, so things are all sorts of happy and shiny. By far, the best thing (except my family…) about being here is the food. Our (one of my ~*bffz*~ goes to my school and lives right near me—how lucky is that?) first stop upon arriving in vacationland was going to my absolute favorite restaurant, Green Elephant. I think we ate in silence and were finished in 15 minutes. Best best.
Although I pride myself on my thrifty habits, the ole’ money bag has taken a bit of hit already—but I’m so psyched on all the things I’ve bought for the new house (expect a post about my new items soon enough). So, soon enough I’ll be back and the name of this blog can start making sense.
In the meantime, I’m planning on getting to some sewing projects I’ve been toting around for a few months; hanging with my bro, my cat, and my pals; eating delicious food; and studying for the GREs.
