BACON can help you get on the road to wealth in 5 steps.

I love bacon. The problem is, the bacon I love is the nitrite-free, uncured, local, pasture-raised kind. That means it costs more to enjoy.     Although I am on a budget, I still buy this bacon on occasion, because it is important to enjoy the journey on the way to wealth. I use it wisely, and never, ever, waste it. The grease goes into a jar and is used to add fat and flavor to other dishes.   Here’s how you can use BACON to help you become debt-free:…

Eleven House: Beams are up, Scotty!

We were beaming last week! Two engineered beams were installed in the studio side of Eleven House! Cats in the attic? I haven’t posted about Eleven House for some time – because nothing has happened. We stalled out after we went way over the demolition budget. Who knew that removing plaster and debris could be so expensive? Lesson learned – factor in high costs for preparation.

And when we visited Toronto over the holidays, we took a cooler but had to eat…

5 Ways to Stop Overspending

The holidays have passed, and you have overspent again. Who knows why it happens, but it seems that what you have is never enough. You want things. You need things. So you spend without thought of the future, or even the present – you are making purchases that go beyond your income.     Reasons you may be overspending:   Everyone else has one. The television screams that you need the new car, the fancy jewelry, or the giant TV screen that just went on sale.

Food Budget Challenge Update!

  Last week’s self-imposed Food Budget Challenge forced me to take a look at my spending habits in the kitchen, and come up with creative ways to use it up, make it do, or do without. I realized I was in a pretty good position to spend a fraction of the $300 allotted in my budget this month. And I had to come to grips with my biggest food habit.     Coffee. Because this is not a starvation food challenge (and I count doing without coffee as starving, Cronies),…
