So I can’t speak as a stay at home mom but I can speak as a mother and I know how people’s perceptions of what it’s like can be way off, including our own.
Before having my DS, neither my DH nor I could imagine how much work it takes to be a SAHM.
I completely know what you mean as a new stay-at-home mom and a former newspaper photographer. I found that after years of having my schedule set for me, setting my own schedule was damn near impossible. I was a SAHM for a few months after my son was born, but was also babysitting my friend’s two kids (a 4 year old with suspected ADHD and a 2 year old in the throes of potty training). Hats off to the stay at home moms- I was completely overwhelmed during my maternity leave and felt relieved to go back to work. Now that my son is a little older, I get adult interaction during the day at work and come home from my job ready to play with him every evening.
However, that is my choice…mostly because I love my children and if staying at home playing with them all day was all that a SAHM is expected to do…I could totally do that!
The first 6 weeks or so I was physically recovering (already low iron made for non existent iron after baby was born!) and was exhausted. I was getting my Master’s in Biology (Secondary Ed) when I became pregnant with my first. Magazine and Newspaper Subscriptions – The same exact articles are online for free.  I can read them right now and I didn’t pay a dime.  Why are you? More House Than You Need – When you buy or rent a house that’s bigger than you need, you end up wasting lots of money on larger monthly payments, higher upkeep costs, higher utility bills, and lots of random ‘stuff’ to fill up the extra empty space. Retail Furniture – Most people don’t realize that home furniture has a 200% to 400% markup on it.  A typical retail furniture store must maintain warehouse inventory, a showroom, commission salesmen, etc. Medical Issues that Can Be Avoided – Eat right and exercise regularly!  Keep your body and mind healthy!  Major medical problems drain back accounts, increase insurance rates, keep you from working and earning money, and generally guarantee that you will have long-term financial problems.
Prescription Medication – The previous bullet leads directly into this one.  Prescription medicine has one of the highest markups of any consumer good. When it comes to long-term wealth, frugality is the key and it all begins with spending money wisely or not at all.
I quit a three pack a day smoking habit at the end of 2004 and after six months off the sticks, I treated myself by buying a nicer used car with the money I saved from buying cigarettes. Also, if you do a lot of printing that doesn’t require color, a black and white laser printer is so much cheaper over time than an inkjet.
Imagine if gas stations had a printer ink nozzle next to the other ones, and the price was $8000 per gallon on the sign. Although I may overall agree with the post, I also cannot help but thinking that life would be rather boring without wasting money in useless things.
I was hesitant to read below the title thinking I’d probably have half of the wasteful purchases.
I find that the media has hyped up all the things we supposedly need to be happy and to be with the in-crowd.
So not only do I now save that fee, but also avoid being bombarded and brainwashed by mass-advertising. Mostly I manage to get rid of my garbage responsibly but it is sometimes depressing whenever I take a look at what the rest of the world is doing to this beautiful planet! As far as newspaper and magazine reading (and maybe some BOOK reading folks), why not mention the LIBRARY?
I must have been raised right, because I don’t waste my money on most of these things. Sometimes, when you have a chronic illness that is not avoidable, supplements are your best bet.
At this point I would like to reaffirm that I do not disagree entirely, but would also call into question the ability of cheap sunglasses to protect ones eyes from the sun. The strategy is simple – spend money on nothing else in your life, but the few things above. Money spent on quality nutritional supplements is money worth spending as the soil has been depleted of minerals and vitamins which means no matter what we eat we aren’t getting them in our food as much.
Arras is a WordPress theme designed for news or review sites with lots of customisable features. Jared Leto’s turn in Suicide Squad is the latest reminder that the technique has become more about ego and marketing than good performances. Of all the stories surfacing about the new DC Comics film Suicide Squad—from the dismal reviews to the box-office reports—the most disconcerting are the ones that detail how Jared Leto got into his role as the Joker. Watching Leto tell one disturbing tale after another makes one thing abundantly clear: Method acting is over. I bought a PlayStation 4, set it up, heard the game I wanted to play had been delayed, put it away. In the shadow of a steep ridge dusted with gray-purple fronds, I discovered the monolith, which taught me a single word in the language of its alien makers. The Republican nominee’s staffers and party officials will meet in Orlando during a turbulent month, Politico reports. Donald Trump’s campaign and Republican National Committee officials will be gathering in Orlando on Friday for an “emergency meeting,” Politico reports.
In recent weeks, a steady trickle of Republicans have come to Clinton’s side, and a number of Republicans have vented frustrations over the party’s nominee. The history of science has been distorted by a longstanding conviction that correct theories about nature are always the most elegant ones. Imagine you’re a scientist with a set of results that are equally well predicted by two different theories.
This, it’s often said, is just where you need a hypothetical tool fashioned by the 14th-century English Franciscan friar William of Ockham, one of the most important thinkers of the Middle Ages. Occam’s razor is often stated as an injunction not to make more assumptions than you absolutely need.
Agents discovered 68 firearms, including a 3D-printed pistol that was detected probably because of its metal bullets. Last week TSA caught a near-record 68 firearms in people’s carry-on luggage—including a 3D-printed pistol. In tough times, people want more in a leader than intelligence, integrity, or the ability to build really tall walls. According to an evolutionary theory proposed by a pair of psychologists, charisma is the ability to convince followers that you can get other members of a wider group to cooperate.
Each year, I keep a running list of exceptional nonfiction that I encounter as I publish The Best of Journalism, an email newsletter that I curate weekly for its subscribers. A Democratic landslide in November could flip a dozen or more legislative majorities that Republicans captured during the Obama era. Donald Trump’s recent plunge in the polls has tempted Democrats to widen their dreams for a big night in November. But there could be a Trump effect in another 2016 battleground that could shape the electoral landscape much further into the future: the elections for control of state legislatures. The wave elections of 2010 and 2014 that gave Republicans majorities in Congress also handed them the levers of power in state governments across the country.
At the age of seven, Henry Gustav Molaison was involved in an accident that left him with severe epilepsy.
A documentary explores the promise and perils of the un-indexed internet—a space for hidden revolutions, drugs, terrorism, and child pornography. The truth is that budgeting isn't just for times when your money is tight or your life is undergoing a major transition.
When you're short on cash, a strict budget is the best tool for finding financial stability. If a missed paycheck will make your finances cave in, you must learn how to make proper supports.
Punks wear their tattered threads and studded leather jackets with honor, priding themselves on their innovative and cheap methods of self-expression and rebellion. Hipsters and indie kids try so hard to fit in, but it’s embarassing to have someone point out that fact. But after punk was plasticized and hip hop lost its impetus for social change, all of the formerly dominant streams of “counter-culture” have merged together.
But the moment a trend, band, sound, style or feeling gains too much exposure, it is suddenly looked upon with disdain.
Following trends while pretending to be a trendsetter: Are you consistantly cool and fashionably dressed? Loyalty means nothing, only fashion: Hipsters will often hide their love of uncool things, or cloak their love in a vaccinating veil of irony. I recently went to the closing party of a bar I’ve been going to for about 7 years, since it opened infact. I realize that you have worked hard to write a hate article, and you think you may be loved for it. And the thing you bothered me most with your article is that christians are misguided and atheism is correct. Anonymous up above proves one thing, everyone asks what happens when hipsterdom becomes mainstreamed?
Fergun than you are really a terrible friend, a friend is someone whose company you really enjoy and not just to make fun of someone and talk badly behind their back. I first noticed the graphic on a friend’s Facebook feed last weekend, accompanied by an avid conversation about which body type men find more attractive.
I’m no more likely to look like Marilyn Monroe than I am to be mistaken for Keira Knightley on the beach. PLUS Model Mag Promotes Size Acceptance, But Are Their Photos Really Body Positive?Dear Facebook Friends: Please Stop Sharing This Female-Bashing Gillian McKeith vs. And if you read the article, you’ll see that I am arguing against conformity and against the photo entirely. The point of this post is to talk about what beauty standards set by Hollywood and the media are doing to women’s self-esteem and mental health.
The point is that women should not hate one another because of their sizes, and images such as the first one do nothing but fuel that very hatred.
In reality, there is no justifiable reason to foster any kind of hatred between women at all, regardless of the sizes they wear. I think you missed the point of the article… the reason that compilation is great is that they all represent different body types and are all beautiful. You shouldn’t have to find EVERYONE attractive so some people feel better about their bodies. If that’s what they want to look like, or already do, and THEY are happy with it, then let them be. And we have plenty to worry about in our country, however, body image is something that SHOULD be worried about. Even to this day, at 19 months, she still craves my attention more than anything else, and it’s hard to get anything else done, including housework, and work I need to do from home.
I work full-time but she’s usually by my side all day Mondays, Tuesdays, weekends after 2pm and heck, any other time I’m not at work.
I know some SAHMs that have their kids in pre-school as soon as possible and are basically sitting at home alone for most of the day.


After teaching for eight years with no children i definitely have more housework and cooking, but I enjoy teaching my daughter and getting ready for her to go to kindergarten. All I wanted to do was cuddle my baby and be with her non-stop until I had to go back to work. Hubby wants me to stay home the whole first year our Little One is here, and maybe even longer.
I will say that while being a SAHM mom is hard, being a working mom isn’t any easier.
My day today is this-get her up, make us a cup of chamomile tea, make breakfast, dress and feed her and me, do a Valentine’s day craft, wash dishes, cook lunch for my husband, daughter, and myself, pick up toys, eat with hubby and child till he has to go back to work, do a preschool lesson with my daughter, and put her down for a nap-we also baked homemade crayons shaped like flowers. Magazine and newspaper subscriptions don’t cost very much but not paying for them decreases the quality over time.
But I disagree with the newspaper subscriptions-as technology grows, we lose a lot of things. We really can’t do everything on the internet, and I love reading the news when its in my hands, not on a screen-I trust it a whole lot more. The only things that I do is one prescription (insurance pays for most of it anyway) and eating out a little more than I should (which still isn’t very often compared to the bulk of people). Leto was reportedly so committed to the part that he gifted the cast and crew with a litany of horrible items: used condoms, a dead pig, a live rat.
Not the technique itself, which has fueled many of cinema’s greatest performances and can be a useful way of approaching difficult roles. Not only does that total beat the better-reviewed Deadpool (84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), which I loved, it smashed the August box office records previously set in 2014 by Guardians of the Galaxy, which I really loved. A year later, I set it up again, preordered the game, downloaded it overnight, and woke up early on Tuesday, August 9, to leap immediately into the cockpit of a dinky starship crashed on the surface of a poison planet, my 100 percent unique starting point in a virtual cosmos that is—the game’s makers assure us—functionally infinite.
On Wednesday, the Clinton campaign also formally acknowledged anti-Trump Republicans in an effort dubbed Together for America.
Called Ochkam’s razor (more commonly spelled Occam’s razor), it advises you to seek the more economical solution: In layman’s terms, the simplest explanation is usually the best one.
That pistol was about five-inches long, plastic, and nearly made it onboard a plane in Reno, Nevada.
They want someone who can make a compelling pitch and inspire a sense of urgency—someone with charisma. These researchers found that exposure to charisma increased generosity: Subjects who saw a ted talk by a charismatic speaker later gave more money to a stranger than did those who saw an uncharismatic one.
A landslide victory for Hillary Clinton, they now believe, could bring with it control of the U.S. Thirty-one out of the nation’s 50 governors are Republicans, and the GOP now controls a record 69 out of 99 state legislative chambers.
Twenty years later, a surgeon named William Scoville tried to cure him by removing parts of his brain. As revealed through Dittrich’s extensive reporting and poetic prose, Molaison’s tale is one of ethical dilemmas that not only influenced his famous surgery but persisted well beyond his death in 2008. Use Accurate DescriptionsWrite down your expenses by what they are rather than where you purchased them so you'll be able to figure out later how much you spend in particular categories.
B-boys and b-girls announce themselves to anyone within earshot with baggy gear and boomboxes. Hipsters cannot afford to maintain any cultural loyalties or affiliations for fear they will lose relevance. I thought you were rebelling against status-obsessed drones who are now working their way up the real power hierarchy.
But haven’t you noticed that hardcore atheists are just as annoying as fundamentalist Christians?
You can’t jump into the indie side of consumer culture and think that insulates you from the repercussions of materialism and consumption culture.
They are constantly acting and trying to (passive aggresively) impress eachother and everyone else, all the time.
You are a really bad friend and I just hope your friends will see in time just how bad a person you are. Then I saw it on Twitter, shared by famed yoga teacher Kathryn Budig, who encouraged her fans to feel better about their bodies. Feeling good about our bodies is the whole point; too many women let body image hangups drag down their mental and physical health because they feel judged by ridiculous standards. I, after seeing the image originally posted by a male in my social network, I knew it is an issue for men, women’s body issues. They will get done when I’m up at night due to being 24 weeks pregnant and not sleeping. Your house gets ten times filthier ten times faster when it’s you and the kid(s) at home. I also know lots of moms who homeschool and are basically doing a full-time job at home while having all the housework undone constantly. I will say someways it doesn’t seem like there is much if a break as when they are resting in the afternoon I am trying to prep dinner, workout and usually clean up and do laundry. He was less than a week old when I went back to the office to collect my personal stuff and I remember one lady asking me how I liked the life of luxury. Being a SAHM would be phenom if I could just have a break maybe a day a week to get my bearings.
Several of the comments talk about not getting any time off, any time to yourself, no time to shower, etc. Now that she finally went to sleep, I will shower, do laundry, and start on supper, hubby home at 5, then supper, bathtime, pick up same toys again, bedtime! When fresh, nutritious food is so enjoyable, it makes no sense to get less for more money in pill form.
The rest of the world actually has to search for stuff, and the way the EU is pushing Canada, and the states ripping canada off, soon we’ll only get to see canadian content on an actual tv. To get into the character’s twisted mindset, he also watched footage of brutal crimes online. But Leto’s stories show how going to great lengths to inhabit a character is now as much a marketing tool as it is an actual technique—one used to lend an air of legitimacy, verisimilitude, and importance to a performance no matter its quality. I haven’t seen it, but I’ve sat through the preview roughly a dillion times this year, and Jared Leto’s cackling psycho hipster routine did not improve with repetition. Then, I went roving on the planet’s surface—layered with deadly miasma, no big deal—to gather the minerals required to fix my ship. At the Raleigh-Durham International Airport this year, officers caught one passenger with an inert rocket-propelled grenade in a carry-on bag. For decades, scholars have struggled to define this X factor, but they are developing a better idea of how it works. And thinking about a charismatic person (versus an acquaintance) made people more likely to cooperate with a stranger.
I could not read or note every worthy article that was published last calendar year and I haven't included any paywalled articles or anything published at The Atlantic. Senate and dramatically shrink the party’s gap with Republicans in the House—if not flip it entirely. The gains the party made in 2010 were particularly crucial, as they allowed Republicans to dominate the redistricting process that occurred after the decennial Census in a way that locked in their gains in the U.S. It’s a story about more than just the life of one man or the root of memory; it’s also about how far people are willing to go for scientific advancement, and the human cost of that progress. But it is rare, if not impossible, to find an individual who will proclaim themself a proud hipster. What we do need is greater diversity in body shapes and sizes in movies, TV shows and magazines.
And no singular beauty ideal will ever be good for women, so let’s promote diversity instead of comparing one uniform ideal against another. There are men being brainwashed to one size is better than another, beauty and personality didn’t matter. I feel to pushed to look like bloody Marilyn Monroe or Kim Kardashian by MEDIA and people like you but I fight against it. DH gets a taste of my M-F schedule on days when I have to work away from the house on the weekend and it completely exhausts him.
I was also awake at 5 am for about a year straight before I finally kicked that nasty habit!
But sometimes I take a day off here and there from work to stay at home with my son (because it’s JUST my son now, and not the other two) and if I could stay at home with him every day I totally would. I have never been a surgeon or an air traffic controller, but I imagine those jobs are harder than being a SAHM of a small child (or, eeps! We had always split housework up (him doing a majority of it because the way I do it is not good enough!), until I had my first child. I am a SAHM of a 4 mo old son and before him my hubby used to think I may be able to get back to work in 4-5 months.now the condition is so crazy that I have sworn off work-life for next few years till I can get my bearings right as a mom! Growing up my Mom was a single mother, and had to work a lot, so I never really saw her, thus leaving me closer to my grandfather and my aunts.. Hands down, tougher job to be a stay at home mom than it was to get my Master’s in teaching while pregnant.
Most people exist to watch tv, smoke, drink, gamble, and buy new and expensive items, so it’s enjoyable to see other people out there are on the same page.
First of all, I find clicking through online articles and links to be much less fulfilling than opening the morning paper and scanning full articles, Second, I love newspapers and magazines, and I know that in this highly-digital world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain a paper. You know the ones like frappachino, macchaito etc which cost a lot more plus those shots of vanilla or caramel (which means it’s fast becoming a syrup drink NOT a coffee) that are charged even more extra for. Multiple transaction costs plus forced sale outweigh the additional expense of maintaining a larger home. Computers will continue to be used and improved-so much so that people are now starting to read books online.
Leto’s Joker is the latest evidence that the prestige of method acting has dimmed—thanks to the technique’s overuse by those seeking award-season glory or a reputation boost, as well as its history of being shaped by destructive ideas of masculinity. When the film scored a horrible 26 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, I figured I was in the clear—OK, bad movie, don’t have to see it, back to waiting for Black Panther.
In 2014, someone in Northern California tried to smuggle a knife wrapped in an enchilada (an act TSA described as delicious not malicious). Everyone he met, every conversation he had, everything that happened to him would just evaporate from his mind.
It’s an odd dance of self-identity – adamantly denying your existence while wearing clearly defined symbols that proclaims [sic] it. Your fancy, designer shoes were probably made by orphan children in the Phillipines and then shipped over here at great expense to the environment… but not your conscience apparently.
Gillian McKeith photo before it, or the recent PLUS Model Magazine photo shoot, I know the intention of this graphic is good. Most women don’t have the 21-inch waist Elizabeth Taylor had at the height of her fame. You can’t say that Keira is anorexic, she has ALWAYS been fit like that, she is naturally tall and slender. Someone with an eating disorder when younger can have complications for the rest of their lives.


And he is only caring for one baby, not trying to maintain a house and business at the same time. I love that I get to stay at home and I can still freelance for the newspaper when they need me. I get so much more done that way, since I’m not working all day long, then coming home to cook, clean, do laundry etc etc in the few hours of daylight left.
If you are happy being a working mother, and it’s the best fit for your family more power to you. I appreciate the fact that I am able to be a stay at home mommy right now as I know I will return to teaching when our children are school age.
Instead of working 8-10 hours a day I was now nursing that long AND not sleeping etc, etc, etc…. He stopped doing anything around the house and with his commute and schedule, he NEVER did night duty in the early days (she was bottle fed, so my boobs were not required!) not even the weekends.
I work harder to keep the house running smoothly than I ever did as a grad student, and I was an A student.
Instead, we get a proliferation of sources that report information without fact checking or doing any back research, and the amount misinformation floating around increases dramatically. Budget by the Month, Not the PaycheckThis forces you to think slightly longer-term than your bimonthly paycheck, but not so long-term that you're likely to get derailed. I walked in and was immediately greeted by a room full of hipsters who I have never seen before.
Their opinions are so quickly made with little to no effort, true conviction, research, or experience, they truly are arrogant. In a way, the women on the bottom half of the photos have figures that are more impossible to obtain: not only do they have wasp waists, they also have proportionally large busts and hips. I feel for young men, who feel they need to be in the closet about the type of girl who is his preference. Depending on your natural body type you will look very different from the same type of work out and diet. Weight and body image concerns are only rising and spreading to the male gender and as well as every race there is. Definitely something worth experiencing (if you can and want to) so you know what it’s like. Staying at home is so much more work than my job was but I wouldn’t change it for anything, even if I have to pick up all the books that my son throws off his bookshelf 4 times every day. In fact, my hubby had to fly to Florida for 4 days for his grandfather’s funeral, so I took the week off from work to stay home with my son.
I can only imagine how challenging it must be to try to find the energy at the end of a long day to go get groceries, do the laundry, cook, clean and find some quality time with your family. We just had our second and while pregnant I was able to finish my masters while being at home as well. But mostly i love the time i get to spend with my kids, because all too soon they will be off to school, and i wont get the tea parties, and the art projects, and the lets color my sister with chalk moments anymore.
Why pay more for an exotic sounding marketing named drink when good old coffee roast is still on the menu?? You can easily carry it with you and access it at any time, and electronic failure won't cause you to lose your data. It is hard, I can’t imagine what being a homosexual is like, people pretending to accept you cos if they ostracise you they are discriminating. They will be begging to go back to the office by the end of the day and leave the hard work to us. I know a lot of moms, myself included, run errands just to have an excuse to get out of the house and break up the day. I found no job more tedious, stressful, yet achingly boring, enlivened by occasional moments of sheer transcendent joy. I do think that saying that being a SAHM is easier really depends on how many kids you have and what you are doing with them. But the fact that we are all in the same boat and that you have put it on words, makes the journey lighter. When I take vacations, I don’t go to some lavish resort where I lay on the beach in peace. The listed stuff would be considered by many folks as “essentials” like insurance, nutritional supplements and medications, and second-rate entertainment! However, notebooks can be misplaced, and meticulous record keeping can be ruined by the swift tip of a nearby glass of water.
Come to find out the bar was put on some sort of Indie dive crawl list with advertisements for cheap beer & liquor, since they had to get of stock.
As long as you eat when you are hungry and doesn’t stop til you are full and get fresh vegetables and protein and all you need from your food it is absolutely nothing wrong with being slim. Everything takes ten times longer though, and you’re always having to mentally plan the day around meals, snacks and naps. But society really does think stay at home moms have such a luxurious life and picture is shopping, dining and relaxing. Even after 15 years of pat-downs, beeping metal-detector wands, full-body scanners, and shoe removals, TSA found more than 2,500 guns in carry-on luggage in 2015, more than 80 percent of them loaded. Perhaps most importantly, it's easier to make mistakes by hand, and it's more difficult to track your long-term spending and savings patterns with a notebook. If you have high expenses one month, you can look forward to the following month when, for example, your car insurance isn't due.5.
I would look like Keira (or maybe I should say Shakira as I have rounded hips like her and my body resembles hers) if I didn’t binge on sweets quite often. It’s exhausting, but there are plenty of opportunities to kick back with a book, too.
The majority of us I believe are working our butts off, however I will admit I do know some SAHMs who have full time nannies, babysitters and housekeepers..lol and there priorities are WAY different than mine! Plan for Both Fixed and Variable ExpensesFixed expenses are items like rent and health insurance, and variable expenses are things like utilities and gas. Working moms do the same as SAHMs – get up before the kids to shower or shower at night. I was a teacher of underprivledged kindergarteners before I was a SAHM, and the class of kids was hard, but not much harder than 1!
If it didn't, you can download Open Office to get a free spreadsheet program that's compatible with Excel.
Some costs, like groceries, can fall into either category depending on how much self-control you have.6. It is just sick to say that that is better for me than to stop it because I would look like Shakira does.
Ha, there’s your life now, in one line, except, add in you frantically trying to work while she sleeps. If you use a spreadsheet to track your income and expenses, you're less likely to make mistakes, and you can easily do calculations like how much you spent on groceries for the entire year. Plan for Occasional ExpensesBudget for expenses that only happen a few times a year like gifts, car insurance and doctor visits.
The only difference is that when we are working, we pay a pretty penny to have someone watch our children. In addition, a spreadsheet can keep a running total of how much money you have left to spend in a particular month that adjusts every time you enter a new expense into your spreadsheet. An annoying thing is that people don’t understand that Jennifer Lopez for example probably has a stricter diet and work out HARDER than Keira Knightley. Financial Software, such as Quicken and Microsoft Money: The obvious drawback of these programs is that they cost money and may have to be upgraded (for a fee) every couple of years, particularly if you get a new computer with a new operating system.
There is no excuse for going into debt because you didn't realize that Christmas happens every year or that you would need a bridesmaid dress or a tux when your best friend gets married a year from now.Your budget can be more or less detailed depending on your level of self-control. He walks past me and since it was a short sleeve shirt, I could see he had a LARGE equal signs on the back of his arm just above his elbow.
They keep track of your bank and investment accounts for you, for example, sparing you from logging into all those accounts. Can entertainment be grouped under miscellaneous, or do you tend to spend so much on movies, restaurants and concerts that this needs to be its own category?In addition, budgeting is a little different if you have a steady income versus an irregular one.
The down side is that if your computer gets stolen or hacked, you might wish so much of your personal information wasn't so readily available.
If you're paid hourly or on commission, are self-employed, work seasonally or are a student, you probably won't know how much you're going to make until the month is over.
It is her body type that makes her curvy, she can STARVE before videos to be able to show off her tiny waist since her hips are big any way from the way she is built and the way her body works and where she loses fat.
You will still have to cover certain expenses no matter what, and if you've been in the same line of work for awhile, you probably have a good idea of the minimum amount of money you're likely to make.
Also, since they're Internet-based, you can access them from anywhere - you don't have to be on your home computer. Budget around that minimum and you might be pleasantly surprised at the end of the month if you make more.Budget ExampleOur budget spreadsheet is easily adjustable to accommodate different budgeting needs and styles. Some people might not feel comfortable giving all their information to an online service, and no matter how well-designed it is, any online system could have weaknesses that hackers can exploit. Because in 6 months when his girlfriend gets preggo and their families push for them to get married, you KNOW they will.
However, if you're just using it to calculate the running balances for your savings and grocery, bills and other expenses, it might be a nice tool to have.
All you have to do is change the income and spending categories to reflect your personal situation.
Bottom line, I probably wouldn't have felt so out of place in my own bar if it were filled with any other subset of cultures. Keep Track of Every Expense, Including the Small OnesIt's easy to remember how much you spent on rent or your mortgage payment, but for other expenses, you'll want to save your receipts.
This makes it easy to plan in advance as well as look back on past months and see how you did. If a gang of black people, Indians, Asians, punks, preps, etc filled that bar that night, I think I would've had a better time. If that drives you crazy, put all your purchases on the same debit or credit card to make record keeping easy. Keep in mind, though, that the transaction descriptions on your credit card statement aren't always crystal clear, and you may be left wondering what exactly is that $19.17 purchase.
Don't forget too, that you may be charged for each transaction, and if you don't pay off your credit card on time, you'll be accruing interest as well. Update Your Budget - DailyTracking your money this way will take minimal time, and you'll be less likely to forget something.
