Previously, I posted about different TV streaming accounts to use to cut your cable bill down. That list includes popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Go. What is streaming without the perfect streaming device? It is nothing, nothing at all. I’m sure plenty of you stream on your Playstation or Xbox but there are so many other options.
A friend of mine was telling about this cool thing her friend was doing for her daughter. Although neither me nor my friend are parents, we geeked out at this cool potty training money saving technique. Her strategy not only teaches her daughter to use the bathroom like a boss but also the value of money. She called it Potty Pennies or Penny Dollars.
So, here you are in all your budgeting glory getting your adulting on but you realize there is still room to save more money to put towards your financial goals. Typically you would think this is a easy fix, save the money and do what you have to do, right? Yes, until you realize what you would have to give up to save that money… YOUR SPACE!
Making your own deodorant is super lit… and worth it. Store bought deodorants use chemicals to kill bacteria which causes smells, unfortunately, it kills good bacteria as well. It also leaves chemicals which harm the lymphatic system by being adsorbed through the skin. Store bought deodorants use a ton of chemicals which can cause diseases such as cancer. Did you know aluminum is used in deodorants too? WHOOAAAAA!!!! Yeah, that mess supposedly can cause breast cancer and let me tell you I love my ta ta’s.
I see so many people I know spending a ton of money on alkaline water. I understand the hype as to why people want alkaline water rather than regular ol’ water but don’t let the hype keep you broke. Protect your pockets.
I’m so sick of paying high ass cable bills and there is never anything on TV!! What a waste of money. Don’t get me wrong, I like to watch good movies and there are a few shows I really enjoy but most of the time the TV watches me. Something’s gotta give. I am giving away almost $150 a month to SAY I have cable. So I looked up all the ways we both can beat the box. The cable hustle ends today:
If you live in Nashville and listen to most radio stations especially 101.1 The Beat you have heard a commercial or two or three for Flex Loans. Flex Loans are the worst things for your pockets fam. They may say the interest rate is only 24% but that is total bull. These loans come with more than a standard interest rate.
I was on the phone with a good friend of mine, Ndi, she told me her brother was in a susu. I instantly said “a who who, spell that” lol.. She explained to me a “SU SU.. S..U..S..U, its a group of people saving together to gain money fast for a business” or something like that. Still a little confused I asked her to explain more, she said “So lets say 10 people put $100 in the pot once a month and each month one person gets to collect the total, so everyone puts in and gets no less than the same amount”… *light bulb goes off*
When we think of Marshawn Lynch, we think of witty and beast on the field. Come to find out he is also a beast off the field when it comes to money. It is reported that Marshawn Lynch has saved every single penny he has made from the NFL, thats almost 50 million dollars. Ohhh weee thats a lot of money. He has lived solely off of endorsements and sponsors.
A while back I read an article about 4 sisters who combined all their debt and paid it off in less than a year and a half. Yeah right? It seemed so unreal that I had to find the article and read it again, Lo and behold, it was absolutely true.
