My Budget Journey - Week 6

Well today marks the start of week 7 and ends weeks 6. I must say that this week went pretty well even though I spent a little more money than usual. I was able to put up $350 dollars into my emergency fund verses the usual $100 goal due to overtime. I even had some extra money to throw some money into the stock market. I got paid from my part time job this week and I was able to put that entire check up. Last but not least, I was able to buy some furniture for my apartment which is always great.

Now back to the little more money that I spent!! This week included Valentines day, so this means that I had to by my woman a few things. We also went out to eat so, which is something that we don't do often. It didn't hurt our pockets because this was already planned for, and we both have been working overtime lately so it was no problem for us.

Things that you can learn from week 6!

When you are doing your budget for the month, make sure that you include any out of the ordinary things such as holidays, birthdays, and anniversary's. You will be able to adjust your budget around these days. I recommend working overtime to pay for such things so that you won't have to pull from you bills are savings. If this option is not available, you might have to cut back on the money that you save for the month, but be sure to save something. Don't let any day prevent you from adding to your budget goals unless there is an emergency. 

Well that's all I have for this week, be sure to read my previous budget posts! If you need help building your budget, I would love to help get you on the right track. Shoot me an email at

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.
People do what they w…

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 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 …
