My Budget Journey - Week 2


So Saturday ended week 2 of my budgeting and I did pretty good. I managed to make my groceries last me until this week, and that's great for me being that I shop every week. I did not spend a dime this week on any food, snacks, or miscellaneous things.  I did have a setback which is something that I could not control and that was death in the family. I lost a uncle a couple of Fridays ago and I had to drive back to my hometown. Even with that drive I only spent 40 bucks and that includes gas and having drinks with a few cousins of mines.  I only went over 20 bucks for my budget this week, and I will deduct that from my miscellaneous budget.

What did I learn this week? I learned that anything can happen and that you need to always factor that in your budget. I tag things like this as a miscellaneous situation and not an emergency. People say that this is what a savings is for, but for me saving always includes my house hold and the people that are in it. No matter how you word it you will definitely need a fund for situations like these. 

Overall I had a great week and I plan on continuing learning new things. This week I am starting to coupon so be on he look our for my blog next week. Peace!

My Thoughts - Why Do People Cheat?

This is a topic that I have wrote and read about all to many times. If I can help it this will be the last time I write about it, and hopefully this post will help some of you. I going to keep this real short and sweet, no need for a long post. Women want to know why their men can't keep it in their pants, and men want to know why their women can't keep their legs closed. Your cousin King Braswell is going to tell you in the next paragraph.
Men and women cheat because they want to, and they want to because they are human beings!!! Men like women, and women like men, and they meet other men and women that they like and they do it. The direct reason does not matter, what matters is that they do it. Men are very visual, and they might meet a woman that they are attracted to, so if he feels like its worth the risk he will cheat with that woman. Women like attention, if the right man gives her that attention, she might get in between the sheets with that man.

Health and Fitness - 5 Things Not To Do When You Are Getting Healthy.

Lately I have been receiving bad news on what seems to be an everyday basis about the health of someone close, or a loved one of someone close. People have been having heart troubles, cancer diagnoses, and even death occur. This has lead me to take life much more seriously, and I have decided to take care of myself much better than I was. Over the Last two weeks I have made a drastic lifestyle change, and I've already seen a big difference by changing the way I eat.
Everyday life brings about many things that we focus our attention on, an

My Thoughts- Stop Finger Pointing and Blame Yourself!

I might ruffle some feathers with this post, but fuck it I gotta get this off of my chest. In no way do I condone abuse of any kind, rather it be mental or physical, no one deserves to be abused by anyone! However, if you find yourself going through the same dam thing day after day, month after month, or year after year its on you. If you have not applied any change or action to what needs attention in your life, then you just might like what you are getting, or you are very comfortable.
People come to me all of the time with their problems and I try to motivate them the best I can. Lately I have really been getting overloaded with issues from friends, and most of them have been going through the same thing for years. Most of their problems stems from relationships. Some of them I have cut ties with because they just want to load me up with garbage, and they need someone to co-sign the bullshit that they are doing. The older I get the more that I realize that some of my friends are …
