Eleven House: Lovely New Meters and Lights!

Eleven House moves forward! I have been neglecting you lately, readers! But I’m still here, juggling away. As you know, I have a childcare position before and after school. This week, school ended for the year, so I am focused on the summer’s activities with some upcoming family events, Eleven House and my own writing and voiceover business.

Recipe for Budget Success

When I started sharing my credit card debt and the journey to wealth, my credit card totals were around $11,000. My totals are $8126 – approximately $2900 paid! I opened a teeny tiny account with Robinhood.com. I started a Financial Freedom account and deposited all of my earnings from Job #3 into that account. This money is earmarked for a future house, at which time I will rent out my current home for additional income.
