Probably ~$500, but up to $1k on an average year.

Before COVID- I wore designer suits, and traveled for in-person meetings frequently. So, easily thousands. Now- my shopping habits have switched to Target. Lol. So maybe $500 these days, and maybe not even that. I just change up my scarves, with leggings in the bottom.

Used to spend around $10k per year. Changed jobs during COVID and now am fully remote, so probably closer to $2k (including bras, underwear, socks, and shoes).

like

Since Covid started… probably 4-5k a year.
I do have a dedicated purse fund though where I put $500-700 in a month and buy two designer bags a year because that’s my guilty pleasure. ☺️

This year I want to get another tote bag and then a “fun” smaller bag.
For the tote, deciding between a Chanel Deauville tote or a Goyard Artois in light blue. For the fun one, I’m leaning towards this one from LV. But if you have any suggestions, let me know!!!

Getting pretty desperate to find a new job. Appreciate my current company and how it’s helped me grow, but it’s time to move on. I’m underpaid, overworked, and bored. How do I go about working with a recruiter? How do I find one that’s an “expert” in my role? Do I pay a recruiter, or do they make money from the companies they place people at? Any info and tips would be very appreciated 😊

I’ve recently come to realize that I have a very dark sense of humor— so much so that people are taken aback (maybe because it doesn’t match my appearance). I can’t help what I find funny, but I don’t want to scare people. To me— it’s just a joke about absurd our world is, to them— it’s a reflection of something dark within me? I’m generally a happy person, and I don’t want to project otherwise. Thoughts on what to do here?
