It doesn’t have to look exactly like this.
Keep A Finances Journal
A record of your financial history is meant to do one thing- keep you accountable. It will explicitly show you where your excess money is being squandered. No more buying Snickers on your way to and from work, even though it is just a dollar a day it adds up to thirty dollars a month or 360 dollars in a year! That is enough money to buy a small refrigerator or a brand new television.

Sometimes you stumble across a blog that steals your heart. This was definitely the case when I found Sequoia’s blog. (There is a link to it at the bottom of this guest post! You must check it out!) She is an amazing writer, and the topics covered on her blog go right along with everything that I feel is important. Not to mention that she always has wonderful pictures to accompany each post!
This guest post that she has so wonderfully supplied for my blog is amazing. She highlights the importance of financial security. This is a MUST for those hoping to work on being prepared. If you don’t have your finances in order, you can not think seriously about getting ready for the future. The thing that makes her post so credible is that it is the true story of what happened to her family several years ago. She has applied principles from Dave Ramsey, who I am a huge supporter of. Enjoy this awesome post, and take her advice to heart! Continue reading
Now I know you all remember Patrice Lewis, from Rural Revolution who provided us with this amazing guest post a couple of weeks ago! Well, I got to talking to her, and found out that she is currently working on a book all about preparedness. She hopes to finish her book in upcoming months, and as soon as she does, it will be made available to purchase as an E-Book.
Patrice is such a great writer, I simply cannot wait for this book to come out. In the meantime though, she has provided another post, and the cool thing about this one is that it is taken straight out of her book! So think of this as a sneak preview of what is to come! After you read the post, you will realize how awesome this book is going to be! (And don’t worry, I will let you know when her book comes out so you don’t miss it!) Continue reading
