71 ways to help you take your next vacation…FOR FREE

Screenshot_2017-11-22-12-54-47

Let’s face it life today is hectic. It seems that the demands continue to mount and the stresses of life can sometime seem overwhelming. Costs continue to rise and we’re getting older each day. Did I paint the picture for you? You may need…a vacation.
First of all you need to determine where you want to go. Not just a weekend away, I mean a full vacation one that you have been meaning to take for years.  But the question is: How do you come up with the money to pay for it? That’s what we’re going to figure out now. What’s the average cost of a great vacation?  Depending on how many people are going and where, the cost could be between $1000-$1500…or higher. So the million dollar challenge is how can you come up with / save the money that you need with very little extra effort?

Secondly...when do you want to go? Let’s say you want to go in 6 months. For an example we need to save the $1500 in that period of time to cover the cost of the trip. That’s $250 per month for six months. Do you have the extra money to save or will you need to figure out how to adjust your monthly expenditures so that it would cover the amount needed? You could go out and get a part-time job outside the home but that would cost you time, money, gasoline to get there, and taxes taken out of the money you made. I believe there’s a better way and if you combine this with another money-making strategy you could reach your goal or exceed it that much faster. It’s kinda like losing weight…you want to (1) start exercising and (2) lower your food intake for the fastest results. It’s up to you however to determine how fast you want to accomplish this goal that you have for yourself.

So let’s look at your expenses and daily nonessential spending like stopping for breakfast on the way to work, eating out daily for lunch, stopping for coffee, even going to the drink machine daily instead of bringing your own drink . See the point is there’s always lots of money that is wasted…so with a little attention to the “little things” you should be able to come up with a very large portion of your monthly goal with little effort.

So now that we have our goal set here’s some ways to help you trim your budget and “find” the money for that much needed vacation.

One grocery item is priced high, one is priced low. Which item presents the best deal and how can you make your grocery budget stretch? First, you must figure out an amount that you want to spend for the month and divide that into how often you go grocery shopping. How often is the best? Will you go daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Keep in mind that the more often you have to go to the store, the more expensive  those trips become because of the time / gas involved.

10 Items You Must Have To Start a SUCCESSFUL EBAY ONLINE BUSINESS (create an awesome side hustle)

Screenshot_2017-09-26-12-39-21-1

If you are considering starting a Ebay business congratulations…you can have a lot of fun and make a lot of money.  There are a couple of rules, things that you need to know and “tools” that you absolutely have to possess to succeed long-term.

If you buy something through our links we may receive a commission.

You may have some of these items already, but these investments in your business will pay off handsomely in your greater efficiency, improved productivity and professionalism as the end goal with satisfied customers raving about your products that you sell.

These are items that you must have to succeed long term in your Ebay Business.

  1. A HIGH QUALITY SHIPPING SCALE…Everything you sell must be weighed to know what type of shipping is REQUIRED. The weight of a item and knowing the right type of packaging is super important to making sure your item arrives quickly and on time.
  2. TAPE DISPENSER & SHIPPING TAPE.  You’ll use lots of tape your EBay business so getting the best deal on supplies is one key to making sure you are profitable.
  3. If you are serious about selling on EBAY invest in a THERMAL PRINTER. This is what separates the Successful Ebay Sellers from the “amateurs”. Trust me on this one…you will look and seem like a big corporation with your packages to your customers and get great feedback too.
  4. POLY SHIPPING MAILING BAGS will get your packages to your customers safely and without damage. These shipping bags are tearproof, lightweight and really take a pounding and will make you look professional. Well worth the investment.
  5. HIGH QUALITY BUBBLE WRAP is necessary to protect those items that may break during shipping. Be generous in usage and protect your items well. There’s nothing worse for a buyer than getting an item in the mail that arrives broken. 
  6. PHOTOGRAPHY LIGHTING KIT…the quality of your pictures often determine who looks at your items and whether Ebay promotes them or not.
  7. HIGH QUALITY LASER PRINTER…this will be a huge money saver because it uses toner rather than traditional ink allowing you to print thousands of pages of labels, thank- you notes, or whatever communications are needed. This is the type of printer that big businesses use because of lower overall cost.
  8. You must know the “rules” of shipping and have knowledge of how to get your packages quickly to your customers and how this affects you and the feedback they leave you. Your feedback affects your ability to sell on the platform. Review this SHIPPING PLAYLIST in its entirety to save lots of money on your shipping costs and improve your bottom line.
  9. People may occasionally try to scam you. Certain products seem to have a higher “scam rate” than others. Here is a video that will help you to NOT GET SCAMMED OUT OF YOUR EBAY GOODS.
  10. Good supply of USPS Mailing shipping envelopes ( flat rate & legal flat rate shipping envelopes, get a few regional A & B boxes too). Order them for free at USPS.COM

BONUS: The right mindset is vital...listen to motivational videos and books while you work and allow nothing to stop you. How do you succeed at Ebay? Here is a short 3 minute video to help you succeed on EBAY and don’t stop until you succeed…thereby guaranteeing your success. Now go out there and make you some 💰.

HOW TO PREPARE Your Family For a NATURAL DISASTER, EXTREME WEATHER, STORMS & EMERGENCIES (emergency preparedness)

Screenshot_2017-09-04-22-20-05

It’s that time of the year again… It’s hurricane, thunderstorm, flood, earthquake and tornado seasons. But the real question is ARE YOU PREPARED for it? What do you and your family have planned in case of a real emergency, in case of a natural disaster such as have recently occurred in Houston, Texas our other locations around the world lately? If the same thing were to hit in your area with very little notice would you and your family be prepared or would you be one of the ones who get caught in the crossfire unprepared with no escape plan, not knowing what to do?

Please take 5 minutes, stop what you’re doing right now and prepare yourself physically for what could easily happen to any of us, anywhere…at any time.

This post contains Amazon Affiliate links.

Most of us think that things like this can and won’t happen in our area, (we’re safe) perhaps just like they did in Houston or New Orleans or other places that have experienced natural disasters of an exorbitant magnitude. After seeing what happened in Houston, Texas with the flood, it made me think about what we can do as individuals or even as families to prepare ourselves for an emergency of that magnitude. For example do you have your ready to go emergency kit  and first aid backpacks ready in the area where they are easily accessible ready to grab quickly?

Screenshot_2017-09-04-22-35-32

Think about this: In cases of a disaster, being prepared could actually save your life or the life of a family member. So wouldn’t it make sense to make a checklist right now and see what you would have to do in case of an event like this? You may even want to have a second “ready to go kit” for you to keep in your vehicle in the event it becomes necessary to use it.

Screenshot_2017-09-04-22-27-05

Here are some items you may need for emergency preparedness

  1. Backpack with emergency supplies in it. This is your “ready to go kit”.
  2. CASH… in cases of natural disasters ATM machines or banks and stores may not be available and some credit card machines may be down or not working.
  3. 5 gallon gas can container (none will be available if you wait till the last-minute). Get 2 if possible and fill when notified of impending emergency.
  4. Bottled water for at least 3 days for the entire family.
  5. Emergency Blankets and clean clothing.
  6.  First aid kit in case of injuries.
  7. Solar chargers for your cell phone and other devices.
  8. Emergency generator (like the one shown below) + stored fuel (fuel might be nearly impossible to find during a real emergency).
  9. Electrical Power Cords may be necessary to power devices from your auxiliary power sources. Remember to get power strips too.
  10. Emergency food supplies + non perishable can goods and a good non electric can opener.
  11. Rechargeable Batteries & ChargersMoney Saving Tip of the Day…Rechargeable Batteries!
  12. Get a high quality portable cooler (like the one shown below) that is designed to keep your items frozen and cold for days at a time. ( may not have power for days, weeks or longer).
  13. Talk to your family today and set up a designated location to meet up in case of some family members getting misplaced during the chaos of everything happening so fast.
  14. Emergency Radio & Flashlight (like the yellow one shown below)
  15. Emergency candles w/matches and/or lighters (put in resealable plastic bags so they won’t get wet).
  16. Glow sticks (artificial lighting) can be a lifesaver during long periods without light or power.
  17. Battery Operated Power Tools…Chain Saws etc… make sure that all your battery-powered items are charged fully in advance during this season.
  18. Make sure to have a medical organizer for medications you may need. Be sure to make a checklist and replace every couple of months (expiration date).
  19. Make several copies of your important papers and store them in this for waterproof safekeeping.
  20. Keep some (1) charcoal, (2) lighter fluid, (3) matches and (4) a small grill available for food preparation and heating water up.

Reality: Better to have these items and not need them…than to need them and not have them. So sit down for a minute and see if you need any other emergency supplies from our checklist.

New Data reported in The New York Post finds that CUTTING THE CORD DOES NOT SAVE YOU MONEY …here’s the report

Screenshot_2017-09-11-10-18-41-1

There’s a recent report by a columnist in the New York Post that stated that cutting the cord will not save you as much money as what you think. In the past the price could save you a lot of money but now with the additional costs of programming it could actually cost you more money to buy your packages individually than it would be to get a bundle deal. Can you believe that?

I’m going to give you the link to the report that was reported in FIERCE CABLE Magazine so that you can read it for yourself here’s the link: Cord Cutting PRICIER than keeping Cable…

Keep in mind that a “bundle” still may be your best deal and “unbundling” can cause your costs to actually go up when you cut certain services.

5 Ways to WIN when Buying a New Cellphone…Don’t Purchase One Before Reading This!

As CELL phone companies and providers like Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Straight Talk, Boost Mobile, Xfinity Mobile and an ever-growing list of others compete for our business, the prices that we pay for service and coverage continually goes lower and lower. This competition among them for our dollars works to our advantage. Now just about all the providers offer a unlimited data plan…but not all of them have the same definition of unlimited. Some of the plans aren’t “truly unlimited”. Some offer 4-5 gb, 8 gb and some offer up to 23-32 gb before slowing down the speeds of your data plan. This can affect your true overall costs.

This post contains affiliate links.

Determining your usage is very important so that you can choose the best company to fit your individual needs. Keep in mind that not all the companies offer the same coverage areas. 

Make sure that you’re not lured in by the bottom of the barrel prices only to  the find that you can’t use phone and get data when and where you need it. They are suffering from “a race to the bottom” price wise and they have to recoup their costs somehow. Should you buy the insurance on the phone? This may depend on the overall cost of the phone. With prices approaching $800 – $1000 or more it may make sense in certain cases. Find out what the replacement deductible would be in case of a claim and decide accordingly.

Be careful of unwanted up-charges that you may not want or need added after you leave. I recently had to replace my cellphone and hours after my transaction…I was notified that I had signed up for a service that I hadn’t agreed to which would add $10 to my monthly amount…I hadn’t signed up for the service at all. Of course it will get cancelled. So make sure that you are monitoring your monthly bills for errors or fraudulent charges. What about buying your phone outright? This may be a more practical option for some. What about the thought of buying a QUALITY UNLOCKED PHONE?

Make sure that you check the battery life of your new phone and prepare for your long periods of being away by having a high quality backup battery pack for emergencies.

What about purchasing add-ons for your new cellphone that are always offered at the time if purchase? The prices at the stores can be astronomical as they are a very high markup. A better less expensive route is to get your own cell phone accessories as soon as you leave and get them shipped free and quickly. The savings can be amazing. My wife and I tried this. We saved over $20+ using this method on a recent purchase of a new phone. That money saved was used on something more fun. Every dollar saved…us a dollar earned.
