Sunday Ramblings

May 20th, 2018 at 12:35 pm

I'd budgeted $90 for my hair this budget period. Yesterday, I washed and styled it myself, saving me $45. So $25 of this will go towards a graduation gift for a friend's kid and $20 back in the bank. If all goes well next week, I'll do the same, saving me a total $40.

Any one watch the Royal Wedding yesterday? I thought it was nice, not what I expected. Though I'm sure there was a nice penny spent, everything looked so simple. Goes to show, not everything has to be over the top.

My May book is "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki, I saw a poster in one of the DR groups posts about it so I decided to read it. It's okay, an easy and quick read. I agree with some things and some I don't, that's pretty much with any book read, you'll always have some pros and cons. Like all the other books read this month, I can always take something away from it.

Later I'll be adding receipts, and balancing the check book. I'm just in chill mode right now.

    Just curious if you will be tracking your EF on your sidebar? Are you minimizing all payments on credit cards until you have your full $5K for the car? If not how are you figuring which money to put to debt vs EF?

    If you're interested in productivity books, can I recommend "Eat That Frog"? It's a simple easy book, quick read, maybe a little too simplistic but it actually did affect how I do things. Many times AS and I, when we're chatting in the morning about what we need to do that day, will coach one another to "eat that frog"!

    Hi CCF 👋🏾
    Yes, I'm tracking the EF on the side bar, it's Baby Step 1. No I'm not minimizing the payments to the CC, it's going to be awhile before I hit the $5k. See DR says stop BS1 at $1,000 but I continue to add between $100 to $150 a month to the account. Glad I've done so because I had a few emergencies cone up.

    Basically, each pay period I budget $30-$50 to the EF, I count this as a sinking fund. Any items sold, those funds go towards the EF. Each pay period I have close to about $200 (approximately $500) a month to throw at debt. The last three pay periods, I fell off

    I did watch a good part of the royal wedding when I unexpectedly found it on TV. I enjoyed watching, but didn't think it was at all "simple." I'm sure it cost British taxpayers in the millions.

  5. PatientSaver Says:

    Just read that the wedding cost $45 million!

    I watched some of the wedding on youtube.

    Have you read Richest Man in Babylon? A really good, easy financial read.
