My Budget Journey - Week 1

I actively started my budget last Monday and I have decided to share my weekly progress with you guys, and I must say that I am excited and I am making great progress. I won't share every single detail of my daily life, but I give you updates on how I am doing. I am a little late with this posts so I am going to share my progress from last week. 
My budget  consists of paying all of my bills (gas and groceries included), and giving myself very little pocket change every week. I give myself 10 dollars a week and its really to much because I don't need anything. After all of my bills are paid what could I possibly need? I give myself the $10 bucks just in case I want something like a snack, or for something miscellaneous. 
So last week I stayed on budget other than a stupid emergency that was clearly my fault. I lost my freaking keys at work and I had to go replace them, and that cost me $32. I ate food from home every single day. Not eating out has truly enabled me to stick wi…

My Budget is Saving My Life

It all starting when I was 19 years old when I was working for Lowe's, and I got a phone call from a furniture manufacturer for a job I had applied for. My hours would be from 7am to 3:30pm which was great, and they paid me more money than Lowe's. I would also have the weekend's off and that meant the world to a girl crazy 19 year old boy, but me being in love with money led me to go part time at Lowe's. The life of Mr. Multiple Jobs started in 99 and I'm still going at it in 2019, and to be honest I'm tired of the shit. 
I was staying at home with my parents and there was no need for me to work myself crazy like that. I spent most of the money clubbing and drinking with friends, so it was definitely time wasted. There is nothing wrong with doing what you have to do to survive, but there is something wrong with loving money to the point that you would risk your health for it. I've had times when I had to work like this to support a family, but other than t…

5 Benefits of Making and Drinking Smoothies

I have really been on my health kick lately and I feel great. I made a promise to myself that I would loose this big ass gut of mines by the summer of this year which is 2019. I have always loved making smoothies but now I am taking things more seriously because I am closer to 40 than 30, and it is time to make some changes. Today is day two of the new year and I am off to a great start and it feels great. There are plenty of benefits of drinking smoothies and I would like to list a few and how they have impacted me.
Easy way to get your fruits and veggies - This is a life saver me being that me and my lady are both busy people, and sometimes we don't have time to cook a proper meal. Making smoothies is an all-in-one type of deal, and if done right you will get all of your nutrients in one sitting. Easy to prep - Today I started making smoothie packs by cutting up my fruits and veggies and placing them in a ziplock freezer back. All that I have to do now is pull it out of the freez…

Food and Drinks - Belvedere Vodka

I gotta tell yall the truth, over the years white liquor has never been my thing. I was always a dark liquor guy and crown royal has always been my favorite and probably always will be. I've been on a low sugar lifestyle change lately and I had too find something with no sugar, and I discovered that Belvedere is sugarless. I picked up me a bottle and have not turned back sense. It is sooooo smooth and it gets me where I want to be after about two drinks. 
Belvedere Vodka is the original and true expression of luxury vodka, created from 600 years of Polish vodka-making tradition. The vodka itself is always authentic, and never artificial. I normally mix with with cranberry juice, while most people I know use it to make martini's. Either way you wont loose. So if you are looking for a nice relaxing drink that will give you a nice buzz without worrying about sugar, pick up a bottle from a new site that I use called Wired for Wine. You can have this bottle shipped to you free wit…
