Haley's Money Diary #1
Welcome to Haley's Money Diary!
Our new weekly newsletter, HALEY'S MONEY DIARY, will take you inside the mind (and wallet) of Mrs. Dow Jones. Our queen will reveal what she bought, what changed her brain chemistry & more. This is just between you two, ok?
Best Purchase of the Week:
PROENZA SCHOULER COAT FOR 65% OFF (!!)
When you turn 30 two things happen: 1) You learn the word cortisol & start worrying that yours is too high 2) You realize that fast fashion is no longer the move. It's all about INVESTMENT PIECES at the lowest prices you can find. Such as this $900 Proenza coat I snagged for $278. If you see me wearing this, pretend it was full price.
Worst Purchase of the Week:
THIS MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANER
I realized this is exactly the same as Dial Soap or Baby Shampoo, except 3x the price. Sure, it worked, but the other products work too... the exact same. So yeah — don't buy makeup cleansers. Just use bars of Dial soap.
What's My Personality This Week?
The KUSAMA DOCUMENTARY!!
I am obsessed with her. She voluntarily lives at a psychiatric hospital (#goals) & has the most brilliant mind. Plus — it's cheaper to watch the documentary than buy her new collection with Louis Vuitton.
Finance Tip/Trick of the Week:
OPEN YOUR HYSA
(HIGH YIELD SAVINGS ACCOUNT) STOP👏 KEEPING👏 YOUR 👏SAVINGS IN👏 A REGULAR CHECKINGS ACCOUNT. Open a HYSA instead.
They earn 50x more interest than a traditional savings account. This is where you'll keep your emergency fund as well as short-term savings :)
