My Binder System for Organizing Some Important Areas of My Office and My Life

Family Balance Sheet

I had to chuckle when I saw my training calendar from 2004, the year before our first daughter was born. I keep binders for many different areas of my life. They keep me fairly organized where organization is very important to me and my sanity. My recipe binder is a very important part of my kitchen. It is full of recipes from magazines, friends, and online that I have collected over the years.

How to Save Money by Downsizing

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Statistics released by the National Association of Home Builders show the average home size in the 1970s was 1400 square feet; in 2004, this had blown out to a whopping 2330 square feet, almost twice the size. I don’t know about you but I have a habit of always wanting and buying the biggest and the best. Often this is a stretch financially but I have always had the belief that you buy the best and you get the best result. Of course, this is not always the case, unfortunately.

More Drilling is Not The Solution We Need for Our Energy Future

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

According to the Energy Information Administration back in 2004, opening an Alaska wildlife refuge to drilling would only lower oil prices by less than 50 cents a barrel. We cannot drill our way out of our pending oil and energy situation. There, I said it. There is no way we can actually drill enough holes in the earth to meet all of our current (never mind future) energy needs. It’s not possible.

19 Awesome Freebies Things for College Students

Coupons Do Work

I remember, not that long ago (I graduated from college in 2004) that being in college is great but the cost is expensive. That is me talking to him in 2004 in London, England. For example, I went to University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada for a year. I remember I had spent $800 Dollars (that was the USD amount as they had converted it for me) and I didn’t have that money in my bank account. I had to call grandma for extra cash.

What Is National Financial Literacy Month?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

There’s Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Grandparents Day, Nurses Day, Bosses Day, Administrative Assistant’s Day, Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Black History Month and now – since 2004, Financial Literacy Month. On March 28, 2012 the Senate passed Resolution 409 that officially recognized April as National Financial Literacy Month.

8 Ways to Prevent Identity Theft

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

According to an inspection done by the US Postal Service in 2004, there were over 10 million cases of identity theft in one year alone. If we pause and think, there are many activities we do in a course of a day where we put our personal information at risk- from writing a cheque to charging an item in person or on the phone. You and I may not think twice about these transactions, but someone trying to steal your identity would.

Why We Left Traditional Health Insurance

Family Balance Sheet

In 2004 when we were researching policies, we weren’t parents yet, but fully intended on having children. It really deserves a whole separate post and if today’s insurance environment was the same as 2004 I might explain further, but it’s not, so I’ll move on. Health insurance is a touchy subject. This post is not meant to be taken in a political way.

Medi-Share Update: One Year Later

Family Balance Sheet

We had high deductible health plans from 2004 – 2016 and contributed many years to a health savings account. This is NOT a sponsored post. However, links to Medi-Share’s website are referral links. I only suggest products that I believe in, and this is my honest experience and opinion of our first year with Medi-Share. Health insurance is a struggle for many people, and for us it became a big source of anxiety at the end of 2015 when our insurance company went out of business.

Needs vs. Wants

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

According to Aquatic Net , there are around 8 million pools in residential homes as of 2004, not even counting the over 5 million hot tubs. It seems like a straightforward lesson to teach, right? You either need it or you don’t. Yet much of what we all consider necessary for our everyday life either didn’t exist or wasn’t considered a need just one generation ago. Some of you may take umbrage at things I consider wants, and that is OK.

Selling Your Investment Property?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

At least that is they way I interpret the following advice from the IRS - which may be out of date as this was published in 2004 – 10 years ago. Not everyone is cut out to be a landlord or landlady. If your relationship with that investment property has soured, maybe it is time to sell. You bought the property in hopes that your renters would pay your expenses while the property appreciated. Now that the market is (somewhat) recovered – time to collect on that appreciation!

An Update on Medi-Share – September 2017

Family Balance Sheet

We have had high deductible health insurance plans since 2004 and during that time, we only hit our deductible one year. As open enrollment nears for many health insurance plans, I thought this would be a great time to give you an update on Medi-Share, the health sharing ministry that we are using in place of traditional health insurance. This is our first year and we unexpectedly put it to the test over the summer. So far, the ministry has been working seemlessly.
