If there is one thing I love, it’s an easy breakfast recipe! Unlike me, my husband and daughter are not morning people. They like to get up around late morning and just hang around allowing themselves to wake up on their own time. (Must be nice right!?). But they do however love breakfast foods. So on weekends I like to make a yummy breakfast for them when they wake up.
One of my daughters favorite foods is strawberry so I try to make sure I incorporate it when I can. I wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have some like I thought I did, so I decided to get a little creative and make some of my own! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Rolls that I came up with tasted awesome. I just knew I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!Continue reading

These budgeting tips for your retirement savings are because I believe everyone needs to not just work on their current finances, but also their future. Taking control of your finances now ensures you have a better future, but there are also some specific tasks you need to do to make sure you are making the most of your retirement savings funds. A few simple concepts can help you to easily save for not just the basics, but a great retirement with no financial worries.
Accept it is never too early to start saving. Many couples and individuals in their 20’s and 30’s feel like they are in no hurry to save for retirement. The new vehicle, fancy vacation and designer clothing are more important in the here and now, however the reality is it will take a significant amount of time to put away enough money to truly provide for yourself during retirement. That means savings should begin as soon as possible. Even a teenagers first job and first budget can include a portion of savings for the future.Continue reading
News flash- You do not have to look like the people in the image to get started. You do not need to be a part of the baby boomers generation (born between 1946 and 1964) to ask yourself are you ready for retirement?
How about if you are younger than that? What if you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s? What should you be doing now? The ideas you have should apply to your action plan. The first should be is to include your retirement in your monthly bills.
Do you work for a company that offers a plan? I highly suggest maxing out your contributions. You may have to give up some bells and whistles to make this happen as you start out in the workplace but the truth is you do not miss what you never had.
Are you someone who is seeking early retirement? We were and did. I consider retirement not working at jobs you do not want and really not having to work unless you want to work.
The truth is this all starts with a plan. You need a budget. This is my post on how to save money using a calendar.
Then you need to think about some of the things below.
1.What does retirement look like to you? Does it involve shifting to part-time or consulting work instead of pursuing a full-time life of leisure. Having a modified schedule can help you enjoy a less stressful life without totally giving up the fulfillment that you feel when working and engaging in the business that you’re in. Retirement to me looks like working where and when I want because I love to work. If you ask my husband retirement looks like cleaning the house, going to the beach every day, and hanging with me, his wife.
2. You need to prepare yourself psychologically and emotionally. The prestige and power that your work gives is not easy to let go, that’s why you have to prepare yourself that things will change once you retire and someone from your work will have to take your position.
3. Have a plan on what you want to do after retiring. Do you want to be able to do tennis or golf? Do you want to open a new business? Plan the new identity that you want for yourself, whether its a life of leisure or other passion that you want to pursue, you have to decide which path to take. This is the time for you to open yourself to new possibilities and not see it as closing of doors. If there are things that you wanted to do before but you can’t, now is the time to do it. That means you need an account set up right now and you need to put money into that. You can call it the dream account. It should not be int he same account as your retirement.Continue reading
I am sure by now you have seen people in your feed talking about Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It is the process of holding your possessions and seeing if they bring you joy. If they don’t then you get rid of them.
What if I told you this method can help you live a debt free lifestyle. It can think about it if you held up every item you intended to buy and if it didn’t bring you joy you put it back. I will even take it a step further. If you completed my lesson on your big and scary goal in my post 3 Things My Husband Promised Me That Made All the Difference.Continue reading
