Week 7 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – September Dinners – Meal Planning

Already in September life in the bakery department has been brutal. Two huge weddings and one to go next week and an unexpected order for 50 cookie cakes this week have put me way behind in my personal life. However, I am still plugging away at our debt! The thing that gets us into troubleContinue reading “Week 7 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – September Dinners – Meal Planning”

Week 6 of 80 – Not Impressed with our Debt – Read your Mail

If you are like me, going through your mail is pretty boring. Not much to look at. Mostly advertisements and credit card offers and bills. One day I actually decided to read all of my mail. I opened up all of those credit card offers and looked over all of the advertisements. It was aContinue reading “Week 6 of 80 – Not Impressed with our Debt – Read your Mail”

Week 4 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Side Hustles

I once read a book called “Side Hustle” by Chris Guillebeau. It didn’t change my life but it did get me thinking about people and their side hustles. In the book, Mr. Guillebeau gives ideas for different kinds of side hustles and how you can turn those ideas into income in 27 days. Last weekContinue reading “Week 4 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Side Hustles”

Week 3-1/2 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Buyer’s Remorse

So far this week, even though I made the extra payment to that Old Navy balance, and we are still on track, we failed miserably with not eating at home. I didn’t grocery shop (even though I work at a grocery store) so when it came to making dinners and having stuff for lunches andContinue reading “Week 3-1/2 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Buyer’s Remorse”

Week #3 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt -What’s Different This Time?

We have struggled for almost eight years with our debt, so what’s different this time? Why do I think the plan we are using now will successfully eliminate our debt?

Week 2 of 80 “Not Impressed With Our Debt” – The Rules

Last week I wrote about the Plan for eliminating a big chunk of our debt. This week I want to write about the Rules I have set for us along this journey.

A Journey

I hesitate in writing this post because if I fail, everyone will know it. I feel that I must though, because there has to be more people out there like us that have this problem. Debt. We have been plagued by it for the past 8 years. My husband and I were each going through divorces when weContinue reading “A Journey”

Random Thoughts

The last two months have been a challenge. I had surgery in September and was on a 10 lb. weight limit for lifting for 6 weeks. That in of itself was a big challenge because all I do is lift stuff at the bakery. Luckily the six weeks went by quickly and I am backContinue reading “Random Thoughts”
