I figured I would do this blog entry to let you know what I am currently making other than my regular salary.
And most would ask, why do you want to work more than your normal salaries if you have decent jobs etc…
Well here is my explanation for this.
As you all know, we are on a 10 year journey to becoming financial free. And although the jobs we work would probably get us there and we have paid off all our revolving debt.
It would most likely take a bit more than 10 years to do.
Here is why…. We started this much too late in life.
Now I know many of you will understand this.
Now I won’t say that we were all bad. Most decisions were made because we were living on one income for a family of four, however, there are some instances that we could maybe have done better with our cash if we had had better knowledge on the subject instead of doing like everyone else we knew and just hoping for the best. Or hoping to win the lottery.
It’s funny how you will overspend on the stupid stuff.
10 thousand items from the Dollar Store, but you seldom invest in the stuff that could actually help you.
Such was the case with us. For years now, every time summer comes around, my husband says.
“I should buy a bike. I use to love biking as a kid.”
But having been $60,000 in debt kinda stops you sometimes from the bigger ticket items thinking that somehow, the death through a thousand cuts (buying a whole bunch of unneeded cheap crap) would somehow make it okay.
Hubby knew there was something wrong when the garbage kept getting strewn around the front yard…. So we baited the live trap and found the cutest thief. Second one this year. No worries, he got relocated quite easily.
