Hi everyone, Happy Valentine’s Day! Anyone have any fun plans to share? I’m curious to know if you’ve planned something budget-friendly. :) In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d highlight some relationship-related threads. Whether it’s a spouse, family member or friend, our relationships have a lot of say-so in how we manage our money. We’d love to get your perspective on these threads: This single Penny Hoarder feels uncomfortable with not having someone to bounce her financial...Read More...
@Moore Income You're a good husband Jon. It's always best when both spouses are on the same page with all spending. It's great to me that you put thought into your wife's gift. In this case, flowers or candy would have been a thoughtless gift and wasted money. My brother in law is horrible to his wife all year long, but ALWAYS buys her flowers on Valentine's Day. If I was her, I'd tell him give me the money and save up for a divorce. My husband is great to me all year long and I get an extra...Read More...

Financial Fitness February: Day 17

Moore Income
I really don't have a lot for today's post other than to say that overall it was a great day. I ended up staying up until 4 in the morning today so that I could pick my wife up from the train station since she was coming back from Illinois. Because today was Presidents Day, she didn't have to go to work (at a school) so we were able to sleep in and then just spent most of the morning relaxing. In the afternoon and evening, I got a few chores and errands done while my wife was babysitting and...Read More...
My win is that I got a job. Next I need to move to a smaller apartment here.Read More...

WORRYING ABOUT MONEY- A FULL TIME JOB

lori wulff
Making money, losing money, saving money. This subject consumes just about all of us daily. Its hard to live in the moment and feel good and live, when are mind is twirling around on how we are going to pay bills, have retirement, or maybe dinner next week. I feel if we accept what we have, what we can acheive, and where we are heading our day might have a chance to bloom. Im not saying dont try to better oneself , but accept wgat we can accomplish at that moment. Anybody feel this way??Read More...
Yes! I believe that gratitude is the key. Being grateful for what we do have, does not mean that we cannot strive to better ourselves, it just means to be grateful in the moment. And before someone talks about how there's nothing to be grateful for and how I don't understand dire situations, I do. I practiced gratitude (NOT even close to perfectly though!) when in the same 6 months I went though cancer, divorce, job loss, loss of house, move, bankruptcy, and more. I am grateful to be where I...Read More...
It is so true, money can become something that consumes our entire life, it shouldn't be that way but it is a subject that affects each and every one of us. I have come to realize that worrying about it doesn't help me at all, but that doesn't make it easy. I try to remind myself on a consistent basis that I am taking steps, even if they are just baby steps to go in the right direction to get my finances on track. That is why, I believe it is super important to celebrate our financial WINS...Read More...

Financial Fitness February: Day 16

Moore Income
Another slow day, as Sundays tend to be for me. Really not a lot went down financially but here are a couple things. 1.) Spent $30 for A Dinner My wife and I try not to eat out too much but this dinner is a little different. It is actually an upcoming dinner (on Friday) that our church hosts every year around Valentines day. The dinner is $15 a person. It is a time to eat great food, have fun and enjoy some funny skits. The theme is Hawaiian Luau and since we just got back from a trip to...Read More...

Thanks @MsKimberly I have noticed that the items I have sold in the past couple weeks have all been related to light in some way. It must just be the time of the year. That being said, I did actually pick up some other light bulbs the other day that should bring me in a decent profit once I get them listed and sold.Read More...

Financial Fitness February: Day 15

Moore Income
Usually, the 15th would be the halfway point for the month, but since this month is a little shorter the end will be here before we even know it. Today I slept in and relaxed most of the morning, in the afternoon I went to a wedding and in the evening I spent a little money. Here is what happened: 1.) More Bed Bath & Beyond Sourcing I didn't intend to source more today, however, on my way to Walmart, I decided to check back in at Bed Bath & Beyond to see if they still had a certain...Read More...
Clothes do not sell well for me. Executive desk chairs and vacuum cleaners are excellent sellers.Read More...
Great question @MsKimberly ! I would say for me, the category of item that has been the biggest waste would have to be glassware. It is not so much that glassware isn't valuable... it actually does sometimes sell for a lot of money. I is more so the fact that I don't really have a good understanding of the market and nearly every time I ship it, no matter how well I package it, it ends up breaking on me and I waste a lot of time and money trying to make sure the buyer is happy and resolving...Read More...

Financial Fitness February: Day 14

Moore Income
I have decided to focus Friday's mostly on doing food delivery since it gives a nice boost to our income and it is also usually the best day to earn the most money doing it. So, for the most part, my day was spent delivering food, however here are a couple other things that went on financially. 1.) Bought My Wife Some Valentine's Treats While it is great to be frugal and financially conservative, by no means should anyone get to a point where we won't ever spend any money, especially on...Read More...

Is there Really a way to make MONEY ONLINE?

Forum: Make Money
BearWarrior
Greetings, I have tried several different PROMISES" about making Money online and most the time it's just a con-game where they make Money off of you and then get Ripped Off ! So my Question are there any "REAL PROGRAMS" out there where Money can be made and I would appreciate Proof; Im tired of having my Money "STOLEN" !!! Sincerely, BradyRead More...
Hi @BearWarrior , It depends on what you're trying to accomplish. There is no 'get rich quick' scheme out there except for the scammers. There are ways to make money online, but you're only talking a few bucks a day. Unless you find a work from home job, you're not going to make a steady income. There are options such as online surveys, selling online through eBay/amazon/Etsy/etc, freelance online jobs such as translating or freelance writing. NONE of these require any money sent to anyone...Read More...

Today was a tiring day for me, mostly because I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, however, financially speaking things went pretty well today. 1.) Sourcing Discontinued Items Although, I am trying to slow down my sourcing and focus more on listing, there were two stores that I still wanted to check out. Ace Hardware & The Home Depot I was able to get around to all 3 Ace Hardware stores in town today but only scored big at one and then got 3 of one profitable item at another. The...Read More...
