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.

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.

Then, I said to the Universe that I would let things happen the way they…

10 steps to reducing credit card debt in 2016

Wow. The year 2015 may have been the year of the sheep – gentle and calm – but it was a fast one! But the last part of the year was definitely more focused, and I laid in a course for a better money blueprint. I worked to reduce my credit card debt and bring in more money to save for investments. This past week, I paid off credit card number 2! Yeehaw! An insurance check from an accident arrived, and it was deposited in the bank. But after careful…
