Espresso machine. It was romantic at first pulling those levers, grinding my beans, and frothing my perfectly tempered milk. No joke saved THOUSANDS (I used to go to Starbucks 1-3 times a day 🙃). Midway through lockdown I realized it’s a ton of work to make the perfect cappuccino and tapered to French (I still make a shot of espresso every now and then when I’m feeling like trouble). I’ve since managed to reduce my intake of liquid gold to like a few cups A WEEK so double points. ☕️

I use an iPad on a desktop stand as a speakerphone/videophone for conference calls. Already had the iPad so I suppose I just bought the $15 stand, but it’s great for this purpose. Join WebEx/Teams calls from the iPad and still have two screens to work or view the meeting materials - plus it’s a better angle for video and works well as a speakerphone.

I’ve been supporting various local and federal government organizations since completing undergrad four years ago. The slow periods have been long and grueling.

For those in similarly slow moving roles - how do you stay motivated without spending extra cash on courses?
