Getting a Second Job
I finally reached a point where I decided that I was done. Done living under the stress of financial difficulty. Done with being “owned” by my employer. Done with fear of being fired and losing what I didn’t have in the first place. I made a choice and I started applying for a second job.

5 Ways To Save On Groceries
Let’s face it, food is a necessary expense. If we don’t eat, eventually we will die. Food though, doesn’t have to be expensive in order for you to survive. I’m not recommending that you buy the cheapest food there is to buy, I’m wanting you to stop overspending for it. Keep in mind that the purpose of food is to fuel your body and to keep you from dying. You need to eat nutrient rich food that will fulfill that purpose.

Tired of Drowning
When you are drowning in debt so deep you cannot see a way out, I can assure you that there is a way out. There is a light and you will eventually see it. You have to keep moving, keep working, keep going forward. Do not let yourself become a victim of your own mistakes. Fight. Get up and fight. This will take work. It will take work with your physical body as well as your emotions. You cannot give up. All problems have solutions. You are the one that can fix this. You must be strong. Push through. You can do it. Put down that credit card, put down that $200 purse. Stop letting corporate America have your life. Stop letting things own you. You own you. You are in control. Stop giving your life away to things. Start living your life.

5 Reasons To Budget
For so many people, the word BUDGET is the worst word in the English language. It is a taboo word, a bad word. “I don’t need to budget” is one of the biggest lies you tell yourself and others.

I know, change is difficult, but it is far from impossible. You start with a choice. First you choose and commit to your choice then the rest will follow.

10 Things I No Longer Buy
As life goes on there are things that we will just no longer buy. Our reasons for this vary depending on several factors. The item could be discontinued or the store just no longer carries it.

Things I Wish I Knew About Money
We all have things we regret in life. Whether it was wearing that outfit, quitting that job, or spending money that you didn’t really have to spend. Attitude and our way of thinking about money can either help us or hurt us. I am going to tell you some things I wish I knew about money and then maybe it wouldn’t have been such a painful lesson for me. If only I would have known.

Exercise is something that we know we need to be doing. You are tired, busy, and broke. What you cannot seem to connect is how exercise will save you money in the long run. A monthly debit of $10 or more from your bank account isn’t the answer either. Besides, those gym memberships can be harder to get out of than Fort Knox. So many people, especially in January, run to the gym and quickly sign up for the membership and then you go to the store and buy all the cute little outfits to go to the gym in so that you can be stylish while working out. You go regularly in January and you start tapering off in February. This year try to resist the urge to do that and instead get creative about exercising. Just stop wasting your money.
