A typical 30 day month has 5,040 hours in it. Our lives are consumed with many things during this time. Most people likely have jobs that take up most of their time, followed by hopefully sleep. Have you ever considered how much time you dedicate to managing your finances? I’m sure you allocate time to your personal care by going to the barbershop, hair salon, gym, massage parlor, dentist and even the doctor. Self care should be high on your list but what where does the management of finance rank on this list?
We are Half way thru the first month of the year and it sure has been a blur to this point. The month is coming to a close fast. As promised I wanted to check in with my savings progress for January’s #brokechallenge. If you have not already started to save all your $1 it is not too late to join the party.
The holidays have just about come to a close which means many people are checking their bank accounts with trepidation. This time of year is joyous and special as it is an ideal time to reconnect with friends and relatives. Those friends and relatives can also come with added headache if you are one who goes to great length to please those you care about. If this is you, chances are you went all out in the spirit of gift giving and you may be looking to recalibrate your finances in order to get back on track. So maybe you went over your budget, put gifts on credit cards or took a small loan to ensure you could deliver with gifts this year. Read further as I suggest some ideas to replenish that bank account and hopefully put you ahead in the future.
It was the news that we have all been waiting for . If you have been following my posts, back in November I posted an article titled “Net Neutrality May be coming to an End and Why You Need to Be Worried.” Well Thursday, the FCC officially repealed the 2015 Obama administration mandate that gave consumers more power over their choices in regards to internet service and what you are able to do online. ISP’s (Internet service providers) can now change your internet speeds, charge higher prices for better service or limit web capabilities altogether. According to a report from the New York Post the changes will not go into full effect for several weeks, so do not expect to see any differences in internet service just yet.
