Patience + Budgeting = It Works

December 1st, 2017 at 02:33 am

I'd budgeted $65 for an oil change, glad I waited until the next budget period to do this. Tire Kingdom sent me a Black Friday coupon for $19 plus $3 for a disposal fee. It's 3k but hey, I can add the extra $40 saved to CC3. My goal is to get a job much closer to home so that I can reduce the maintenance on my car.

God is right, patience pays off. Everything I've waited to purchase until I've budgeted for it, the price has reduced. It's hard but I read something that said, stop waiting on the elevator and take the stairs.

    Amber, I haven't been as active here lately as I'd like, but I just wanted to say that you're truly inspiring. Your attitude, determination, and dedication to your plan has been incredible to see, and I'm hoping that when the dust settles on my side, I can be as strong and dedicated as your are.

    I'm so happy to jump on the praise train and add 'atta girl' cheers since you made a plan and are actioning it! How often do you go to Freedom U class? Is it weekly? monthly? Do you follow on You Tube or podcasts?

    How are licence and car tags covered? While not due until January, are they cash flowed from sums generated in December?
    If you are considering a move, this is a good time to identify items you no longer use or need that might be candidates to sell or donate. It's efficient to mark items with a small bit of tape or stationary dots. [whatever's at hand] Are there items to list on FB sell page or Craigslist since everyone is in a buying frame of mind. The Thrift stores also appreciate items in reasonable condition for those with so much less. When collecting the laundry, I did a quick review of lingerie and pitched anything stained, ripped, elastic sprung or uncomfortable. I manage to replace articles but fail to immediately pitch the stuff being replaced.

    Thanks everyone, I wouldn't be able to do it without your support.

    SNAFU, the licenses are due my birthday month, I've been putting up for this. They're a little expensive but worth it when speaking employment. I also have DL and tags due as well. I like the idea of decluttering and selling, I'm definitely going to start this.
