There are many ways that you can save money. I hope to be able to help you find some solutions or simple things you can do to help cut the amount of money you have flowing out. As you may have already seen on this site, the focus has been on ways to make money, and reviews, but there are other areas that have been neglected that may also be helpful to you. So, I am adding a new direction for you to follow here on my website.
Consider some of the simpler things involving money as you read this. Are there other areas this website may go? But, first, I would like to ask you a couple of questions before I move on…
A Couple Questions For You…
How much do you pay for a cable television subscription?
How much are you paying for your cell phone bill?
Do you have the option of bringing your trash to a recycling center or do you have to have it picked up by the city sanitation company? Or are you paying a company to pick up your trash at the curb? Unfortunately, I am paying for the curbside pickup.
How do you travel around town running errands? Do you plan it so you can do many of them together at once…to help minimize the driving and fuel usage? Or do you run back and forth from home constantly eating up the gas in your car? My wife and I do a little bit of both…
How about eating out…do you do it? I am sure you can find ways to budget your grocery shopping and still save costs because now you plan it out and are cooking for yourself.
How many credit cards do you have? And are they at their credit limit and now you are paying interest every month? I know I am still doing this but working on it. I have an idea of how to save you money on the interest rate and pay down the debt faster than just paying the minimum payment each month.
It is insane if you think about the many ways that you can save money and reduce the amount of outflow each month.
How Does This Relate to Making Money Online?
Now, you may be wondering how does this relate to making money online?
It is related in many ways, first, you must know what you have going out and what you have coming in. If you don’t then you will remain on the vicious cycle of simply staying in debt forever owing someone else.
One thing that most of us don’t realize is there are Biblical principles in place pertaining to money or how we worship. The Bible teaches that we “cannot serve two masters”, in a sense the constant drive to make more money can be an inhibiting factor in our ability to worship God. Do not forget that I am a Christian guy and am not trying to be preachy here, just that writing this is my way of reminding myself also.
Keeping our finances in order allows us to be able to focus on the things in life that are truly important to us. Time with our families and time in church instead of at work on a Sunday. I fit the bill in that last statement…now, I am forced into taking Sundays off by my employer. So, here I am attempting to do what you are trying to do as well.
There is a way to keep our own finances in check. We always seem to stay in the cycle of paying off a credit card and then using it all over again. All while we tell ourselves, “I’ll pay it off at the end of the month”.
WRONG!! We never do that…at least I know I don’t. Can I ask you this question…do you?
Time to Be Honest With Ourselves
Now, be honest with yourself here…you don’t have to tell me or anyone else… Just so you know what you are or are not doing. Stop and think how many times you wish you had more money to be able to do the things you love to do.
Making money isn’t the only way to go. There are ways to save and that also falls in line with making money online…and that will discuss here as well. There will be more blogs about it. This is just an intro to the additional direction this website is about to take.
So, far I have written about what it would be like to make more money, by talking about what it would take to be happy. And whether money can do that for you.
I have also mentioned a few of the steps involved in creating a website and what tools there are to help you do that.
I have also done a few reviews of some of the legit and not-so-legit ways to make money online. My favorite method is Wealthy Affiliate…if you care to see what it is about.
So, What Else Is There?
I also have some other ways to make money online, and a few simple ways to help you get yourself out of debt to be able to pursue some of the different ways to bring in more income…that is…if you are interested. I hope you are.
My biggest interest is helping others do what I am trying to do here…and that is to get out of debt, build savings, and create passive income online…why?
One big reason, so you can do the things you want to and if you have a family…to do a better job providing for them. That is my “WHY” …what’s yours?
You need to figure that out so that you have a goal to set and put yourself in the right direction of earning what you really can. Not to mention… not having to be held to someone else’s determination of how much you make.
I mentioned Biblical principles earlier, mainly because I am a Christian man and believe firmly that the Bible guides us in many ways toward a better life. Not, necessarily for ourselves, but to make things better for you and anyone else out there.
I use the Bible as my basis because that is where my belief is. But, if you stop and think about it, the same principles are found in many secular books and guides that help you to not be in debt to anyone else. So, if you are like me and believe in providing for your family and do not want to be in debt for the rest of your life, then join me here.
Or, if you decide it isn’t for you that’s fine too…be prepared to see some money-saving tips and how to get yourself out of debt. You will see that even if the money-making ideas aren’t what you are interested in. Try some of the other tips and suggestions soon to be here to help you free up your current income.
In a Nutshell…
My make-money online ideas and reviews were a great feature and may be OK. But, stay tuned for more to come…I want to help you in other financial ways as well. So, the money-saving methods and debt reduction ideas will be a way of adding a new direction to this site.
Just think, if you decided to do the same thing and try to make money online…this could work for you as well.
I wish you the best in all you do!
