Digging Out and Up | because staying in debt isn't an option… Digging Out and Up | because staying in debt isn't an option… I caught a little bit of flack from one of the guys in the shop yesterday for drinking a bottle of Coca-Cola. At two cans worth (710mL) it is a little on the larger side, but I was sipping it, not guzzling it. I bought a 6 pack of bottles instead of the 12 pack of cans because they were the same price and I could reseal the bottles (which I did). Anyway. I don’t normally keep pop in the house, but when I do it’s Coca-Cola. My dad drinks Coca-Cola.
Thrifty and Fit | Actively seeking a healthier, debt-free life and helping others do the same Over the past 28 years of my life I have only held 4 jobs and that is if you count the Army Reserve. At age 17, I started working for a small local pharmacy and I joined the Army Reserve. After 7 years of catching every persons cold that walked thru the pharmacy I was let go because the post office portion was short some 3000 stamps and obviously I was the one using them to wallpaper my small apartment. (Never mind the other dozen or so people who ran that counter also.). I didn’t let that get to me too much. I had been going to a community college to get some of my electives out of the way with every intension to go back and get a degree at some point.

How To Cut Down The Rental Costs January 9, 2014 By Guest Leave a Comment The biggest monthly bill for most people to pay is rental, and you cannot influence the price you pay after signing the lease. Thus, you better plan well and consider all the details and aspects before you rent a property, as if you are paying too much, it will influence your budget and your life. The short-term impact is pretty obvious here – you will not have much money to spend time with your friends on Friday night, or to go to the seashore in summer. Long-term impact is much worse though – if you are paying a lot for rent, you will not have some spare money for emergency situation, and when it occurs, you will get a credit card debt which is another payment obligation.

100 Things I Want 100 Things I Want Photo by VictoriaMade.com “There are so many things I want to experience in life,” says Laura Nelson. “For this list, I wanted to put aside some of my more far-off ambitions and focus on things that I have the potential to accomplish now but would require some training/knowledge to master. Some will be simple and others will take time, but I am officially declaring my intentions.” 1.

Three years ago my handsome husband and I were married, and although it seems ages ago that our little family was just the two of us, that special day is still as fresh as ever in my head! Even though this blog was not around when we were married, my luxe for less motto guided me in all the wedding decisions we made, and I was on a mission to make our wedding as special as possible - but of course on a budget we could afford! Here are just a few ways we saved on cost but not on taste for our big day... 1. Affordable Save the Dates... We wanted a "save the date" card that was attractive but didn't break the bank.

How do you find the most affordable way to get your child the music lessons you want? Here are some tips: Tightwad

~WORD OF THE DAY~cathexi \kuh-THEK-sis\ ~ noun Definition: investment of mental or emotional energy in a person, object, or idea Examples: "The veil that hides Laura and her eyes, her hair, her smile (and its counterpart, the glove that veils her hand) becomes the object of Petrarch's cathexis...." — From an essay by Margaret Brose in the 2010 book The Body in Early Modern Italy "The plot of this French film diverges from ... most American film we are force-fed in that it deals powerfully with subject matter that counts. It treats an almost unrecognized aspect of WWII in Europe, eliciting a strong cathexis from the viewer, who learns so much that he never knew before this celluloid feast." — From an article by Marion DS Dreyfus in American Thinker, April 8, 2012 Living on Less
How to End the Endless Game of Catching Up When I think about the weekends that I used to spend at the office or behind the computer catching up, it makes me cringe. I did it to make the following week easier. I did it to make more money.
