5 sources to help you stay frugal.

    Friday was my last day at Job #3. Although it didn’t last as long as I had originally planned, I am happy it has ended. I have found that 17-hour work days leave little time for cleaning my home, laundry, eating, sleeping, and comprehending the world around me. I was a living zombie the last few weeks. But I  banked some money by practicing frugal habits, and Job #3 paychecks were directly deposited into my Financial Freedom account. I could have used some of this money to pay…

I had no idea my parents were a part of my financial future.

My dad left school when he was 16. It was 1935. His father was very ill and could no longer work. So Dad found work at a potato house, sewing that thick string into the tops of 5-lb. bags of potatoes. But when he heard that a local earthmoving company was hiring, he quickly put in an application. He was hired (the youngest ever to be hired there at the time) and began moving up in the company, while earning his high school diploma and two engineering degrees at night….

Back to your future self

  October 21, 2015 is the future arrival day for Marty McFly in the  1985 hit film, “Back to the Future.” You might think this movie has no business in this money-related blog.  But it does – the movie was Michael J. Fox’s side hustle. The Canadian actor was filming the TV series “Family Ties” during the day, and he worked on the movie at night. And when Fox was a struggling actor pre-Future days, he once had to sell half his couch and some of his books to buy…

Comb your hair, say cheese, and invest your money.

  Today was picture day for the kids I care for (job number 2).  Oldest Boy was excited; he kept adjusting his new button-down shirt and checking his hair in the mirror. He chatted about poses and hair gel. Youngest Boy…not so much. He whined about wearing the new, hard to button shirt and the scratchy long pants. He slammed the bathroom door and cried, saying he would not be able to play at recess or participate in gym class. We worked through it. I told him I understood his…

Working for a reason

I haven’t forgotten about you, Cronies. I have been busy manifesting my freedom! My plan for Financial Freedom is slowly chugging forward. Since I last posted, I added $60 in pet-sitting jobs to the budget payoff system, and interviewed for a few more pet-sitting opportunities. My childcare position for the 2015-2016 school year has begun as well. Last week, I interviewed for another position – cleaning buildings after business hours – and I was hired! I just sent in the final paperwork to be officially scheduled, so in the next…
