How our Debt Freedom Plan Prepared Us for the Pandemic

Family Balance Sheet

Our first storm: 2007. The year 2007 held such promise for us when it started, but by the end of the year, we were brought to our knees. As self-employed small business owners, we have lived through some tough months, but in 2007, it was a tough year. For a variety of reasons, our business slowed down in 2007. We spent the next few years building our savings back up to the level we had prior to 2007.

How to Build your Emergency Fund

Family Balance Sheet

We have lived through some challenging months as small business owners, but 2007 was a very tough year for us. By the end of 2007, our business picked up again–thankfully–but not before we practically wiped out our savings with only $2000 left to spare, not enough to get us through one more month. We would not have survived with just $1000 starter fund back in 2007. A few years ago, our van needed four new tires to pass inspection.

Front Yard Landscaping: Spring Clean Up!

Family Balance Sheet

It has been a problem area ever since we re-did our landscaping in 2007. We spent the past weekend yanking weeds, trimming the edges, spreading mulch, and sprucing up our front yard landscaping. We clean up the front yard every April and the project always seems so overwhelming when the mulch is delivered. NEEDED. Weeds. weeds. and more WEEDS. In place of wood chips, we buy leaf compost from our township.

The Cost of Personal Grooming

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Some folks even tan or lighten their skin, but the good news (for spending less on grooming) according to that Nielsen 2007 study is that: “85 percent of people never invest in skin lightening, and three quarters never bother with tanning (spray, lotion or sunbed). That Nielson study done in 2007 found: “that the older the respondent, the less interested they were in spending on products and treatments to enhance their appearance, or delay the ageing process.”. We all do it.

5 Books with Insights that Changed the Way I Think About Money

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Even though we bought a house in 2007, I never once expected it to be a money-maker. When I was growing up, my ideas about money were limited. I figured the keys to financial success were: Get a good education. Get a good job. Buy a house, since it’s an investment. Save money in a bank account (or perhaps a company retirement plan). Work at said job for 30 or 40 years. Retire and work no more. Since then, I’ve changed my outlook a little bit.

A Major Problem with the Modern Day Stock Market

Then, in 2007, markets started stalling. Guest Post Author Bio: This blog post was written by Tony Chou. Tony Chou teaches readers how to invest in the financial markets. He gives out different scenarios, and then explains how to invest in those scenarios, such as How to Invest in a Panic. Investors should have learned this from the stock market crash in 2008, that there is a major flow in the modern stock markets. That flaw lies in computer algorithms and trading.

It’s Too Late – But It’s Not For You

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

I will control how I travel (cars and trains only, no planes since 2007) and what kind of lightbulbs I use. As someone who has been writing about environmental issues on the internet since 2006, (has it really been that long?) I often get asked what I think our chances are against climate change. And most of the time, the questioner does not like my answer. Here’s why: I don’t think we (life on Earth) stand a chance against climate change.

How to Take a Frugal (or Free) Vacation or Trip

I have not been on an airplane in 6 years; I gave up flying in 2007 and now travel solely by Amtrak train or by car. What if I told you I am able to take a free vacation or trip at least once a year?

Adult Children Living At Home – How To Approach It

Psychological Tips for Successful Stock Investing

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Although the positions are now (mostly) back to the 2007 levels, if I had dumped them quickly enough and then bought in after the crash I would be better off today.

I thought it would be fun to take a peek back and see if they are still applicable in the 21st century! Don’t Rely On Your Memory.

Vanity Report: Fighting Summer Frizz

Live remotely close to a body of water, even a puddle, and you can expect humidity you can cut through, that will destroy your blow-out in two seconds flat with an attack of the frizzies, and not even a hat can hide the evidence.
