Week 3 – Recap

Three weeks into 2014. This is about the time we start to give up on our resolutions. Be brave. Keep going. It’s already working. Promise yourself you’ll try for at least the month of January. Ironically, today is said to be Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year – so prop yourself up and resist the temptation to give in. Don’t let Blue Monday get to you.

Act 15 – Laches Pas!

Don’t give up. Ever. 

Act 16 – Find the “i” in Gratitude

When things go your way, take time to find some gratitude. It makes life sweater

Act 17 – Talk to the moms
Posted on January 18, 2013
The moms, or whatever you consider your circle, are great resources for tips and ideas. Reach out. People want to help. 

Act 18 – When life gives you stale bread, make yummy croutons

I kid you not, I saved at least $100 last year by taking stale bread and making my own croutons. It’s easy. You’ll never look at a box of croutons at the grocery store the same way again. Ever. 

Act 19 – Go with the flow

Not everyone will share your determination and, dare I say it, obsession with your debt defying acts. Go with the flow. Your debt is an issue, yes. But it’s not the only issue, not by far. 

Act 20 – Live small
Posted on January 20, 2013
We’re obsessed with big, are we not. Small is cheaper. Smaller houses, smaller cars. Just smaller. You might find you’re spending big mortgage dollars on a house full of rooms you rarely use. Something to think about. 

Act 21 – Go ahead. Ask.

Leverage your business relationships. Reciprocity is important in business and as the owner operator of a household, you are a defacto business owner. So if you need a little something extra from the people you do business with, go ahead, ask. Won’t hurt.
