That PCS Hustle || Brave Crate Giveaway

I’m not even going to sugarcoat this: the last few days were a blur.

So much of it was spent packing for our upcoming PCS move and we basically turned our hotel room upside down in the process.

Arriving in San Diego 4 months ago, we already had 2 big luggages each. But yesterday’s pack out resulted to 5 luggages, 4 homeware items in boxes, and a huge mirror — which brings me to my next point.

It’s crazy how much stuff you can accumulate in 4 months.

Today’s post is all about the hustle life I’m sure a lot of people are experiencing.

For as long as I can remember, I’m been hustling through different opportunities. Many of which I’ve loved and am incredibly grateful for, others I’ve learned a lot of lessons with. I love being a busy bee for the most part and am constantly running on coffee and to-do lists because to be frank, I don’t know how else to survive.

I’m grateful for this month’s Brave Crate box because it has everything I need to survive our PCS move, while making sure I stick to my content plan and blog goals in the process.

Here’s a rundown of the items included in this month’s Hustle box:

  • Get Financially Naked book

  • Mandala Print Wallet

  • Stay Humble Hustle Hard Laptop Sticker

  • Susie Blend Coffee

  • Bubbling Bath Salt

  • Hustle Until Homecoming To-Do List.

Because I am such a stickler for to-do lists, I’ve already been loving the one that came with my Brave Crate. Not going to lie, I’ve been using Post Its for the longest time when writing down my daily tasks. So I love how now I have something bigger and more aesthetically pleasing.

Since we’ve been living in a hotel, I haven’t really gotten a chance to try the coffee and bath salts just yet. But hopefully once we get to Hawaii, we’ll have an easy time getting settled and I’ll be able to rip them open and try them out stat!

Speaking of Hawaii, let me just put it out there and say that Vergs and I are getting a wee bit nervous because we’ve heard stories of how everything is instantly more expensive on the island. We’ve had that talk where we knew we needed to make a budget and actually stick to it. This means, no eating out as much, no matter how good poke bowls can be.

*Cue tears*

I’m kidding but you get my drift.

We know that we have to practice being more frugal in the upcoming months, which is why I’m really happy I have the Get Financially Naked book to help guide us through the process.

If I’m being completely honest, Vergs and I are actually pretty frugal EXCEPT when it comes to eating out. We can’t help it. Take out is such an easy answer whenever we’re hungry because we get food in a snap.

That’s going to change once we get to Hawaii though, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I mean, I do like to cook anyway, I just tend to get lazy most of the time.

Hopefully, this Get Financially Naked book will set us on the right path and show us how to be more practical with our spending.

Again, you guys, I wouldn’t have been able to know about this book, if it weren’t for my Brave Crate box. I’ve already raved about subscription boxes before, but I truly love how I have something sent to me every month.

Brave Crate has turned into a monthly surprise gifted to myself — whether or not my husband’s deployed, because the reality is, military wife life is a 24/7 job. All the uncertainty and PCS craziness definitely merits me and all the other spouses going through the same thing a treat or 2.
