Remember those?? Or has life thrown you back into "normal land" again along with your motivation? Haha... If so, consider me your alarm clock buzzing around your ears and the only way you can turn me off is to come up with a new one to tackle this month ;) What's changed in the past 4 weeks that you'd rather work on instead? Personally, I haven't gone a DAY without
Whelp, it's that time of year again! When everyone declares grand gestures of all types and takes on some seriously challenging challenges :) But that's what I love about the new year and all the buzz that comes about it - people using their time and energy for GOOD! Even if the motivation dies over the next few months, haha... but that would never happen to YOU, right?
Happy New Year! Are you ready to kill it all over again?? Stack them papers up high and get your coin vault ready to be jumped in a la Scrooge McDuck? I know I am, haha... Nothing motivates me more than starting *fresh* - even if it's just all in my head ;) Just like yesterday's post on reviewing the past though, I should give you a quick update on how our new year's
I don't think I could do it. In fact, I don't think I *WANT* to do it! Haha... but, I think it's one of the most interesting things in the world someone can do, and I find it all kinds of fascinating. And apparently so does my friend (and fellow car-giver!) Miss Britt who just read a book on someone who's actually doing this right now! As insane as it sounds... The
I saw this over at Everyday Minimalist, and just love it. Thinking of printing it out and putting it on my wall as a reminder to stay on track - I tend to wander at times :) Maybe you'll like this too?

(An anonymous reader's story on her journey to becoming completely debt-free. I wanted to share this with you all so you know it's definitely do-able! I hope you get as inspired as I did :)) The wake-up call came for me when I was 53 years old. I was operations manager in a construction company. Working in construction I was used to being laid off every few years, so I was
Read that again: I wanna need LESS money, not MORE. I don't know why it sounds like such an epiphany for me right now, but I'm really digging that thought process! :) We're always talking about wanting more and more, and trying to finagle ways to bring it all home even faster (*ahem* our side hustle series) but at the end of the day if you can LOSE a butt load of expenses
Now that I got my 9-5 out of the way (sha-wing!), I'm trying to go through the other crap in my life and skim down as much as I can. Only instead of concentrating on just physical stuff like I started over a year ago (which is going pretty well!), I want to knock out all that emotional clutter clogging up my brain too. Things like: Random email accounts - which I never
If there's one thing I love more than finances & beer (and women my wife), it's a clean mind. When that noggin's empty of worries & clutter it's the most beautiful thing in the world! And I can function SO MUCH better too - it really is amazing. It's like you turn into some "SUPER you," getting things done in half the time and w/ much more efficiency ;) I love it.
I am thinking....ummm.... YES PLEASE! Check out these pictures I took while out in Victoria BC (which, btw, is one of the most beautiful places I've been to on the West Coast!) I highly recommend you dropping by some time - esp. if you're looking for someplace romantic. Just don't go with your parents like I did in that case ;) But anyways, yes - back to the house boats. I
