Eleven House The "Eleven" : The Fixer Upper 

Cash Crone: 2016 – The Year of the Fixer Upper

This blog has experienced a month of silence, but for good reason. In my last post, I mentioned how I diverted from my budget to whittle away at my credit card debt. And I also suggested that Cronies should be willing to make changes along their debt reduction journey. I stated that I was setting aside my goal of finding another home until I had completely obliterated the debt and had a substantial savings built. Then, I said to the Universe that I would let things happen the way they…

12 Ways to Earn Extra Money This Holiday Season – Side Jobs

As you know, I take on a number of side jobs to earn money and help pad the monthly bottom line. Most of my income from side jobs goes to my Financial Freedom account, which is growing every day – penny by penny, but still growing. Every penny has a purpose.

Important things to remember on your way to financial freedom.

I have one TV program addiction. It doesn’t have anything to do with housewives or forensic detectives, or otherworldly beings. Not that there is anything wrong with enjoying and being dedicated to watching those programs.  I’m just not much of a TV watcher – I pulled the plug on cable a long time ago. Except for CBS Sunday Morning. The news magazine show debuted in 1979, and I am pretty sure I watched the very first one. Yes, I am that old. Charles Kurault hosted the show, starting the first…

Don’t Go Sour on Saving – National Pickle Day

Pucker up! It’s National Pickle Day! That little fruit (yep, it is officially a fruit) that sits quietly in the jar in your refrigerator is a legend. Cleopatra allegedly crunched them. Amerigo Vespucci peddled them. Elvis fried them. A Dutchman named William Beukelz gets the credit for the name “pickle,” although it seems he pickled fish and not cucumbers. But who are we to question? Shakespeare did it for us, writing in The Tempest, ” How camest thou in this pickle?” According to Pickle Packers Intl. Inc., Americans are crazy about pickles,…
