Going To The Club/Bar


                                              Hello Family How Are You Today?

Going to the Club/Bar as a frugal/cheapskate is to expensive & crazy.  Do we even put this as part of our entertainment budget anymore? Speaking as an older adult  I remember clubbing with the drinks the people and loud music. Back then it was cheap when I was  into the club scene which was Saturday and Thursday nights. But back then the clubs were free on Thursday night for ladies and Saturday before 10 o'clock it was $7 dollars to get in. The drinks were $5-7 dollars in a nice tall glass and they were not water down as much as they are today. The people were out to party and meet new people. I have met some nice people while clubbing. Some of my better boyfriends came from the clubs Not like it is today. What I m saying is it was cheaper and safer to go clubbing back in the day then it is now.

Today the cover charge for some clubs are over $20 bucks. Let's not talk about the drinks they will run you about $10 and higher for a small glass of watered down liquor. I remember seeing music rapper and the likes go to clubs and buy $100 bottles of champagne and  vodka. I mean bottles of it. That's crazy their bills at the end of the night would be in the hundreds just for liquor.  With the money they are spending on liquor in the club you can do other things and still have money left to buy you  a nice $10  bottle of wine at the liquor store.

You want to be seen in the latest whatever outfit & shoes that you paid a lot of money for. This is a younger person's mind set nowadays. God forbid they come to the club in something that they got at a second hand store. So now you spending a couple hundred to look good for one night. I remember whatever was in my closet on the night I was going out that's what I was wearing. Basically I wore black skirts, pants  with nice colorful tops and belts. I looked pretty and the outfits were cheap.

The music is to darn loud. Especially for my ears now and the crowd. It's way to much for me. Your in a pack house with no room to breath it's 110 degrees  in there.  Wall to wall people on top of you with loud music blasting in your ear and on top of that you paid for this. That's crazy.

Meeting new people. I remember back in the day you could go to the club and meet some decent people. Now people seem to be meeting the crazies. People are in clubs today to hook up. Some of them have no problem going home with strangers for the night. Not thinking if this stranger is a crazy or not.  You can keep that it's not worth losing you life over a possible hook up.

I not even going to talk about the drugs being taken in the clubs nowadays. That a whole  story in itself and another expense to add.

With all this said the clubs/bars use to be a nice place to go relax and spend some quality time with friends and meeting new people with the expenses at a minimum.  Now I know it's not worth it no matter how you look at it money wise or health wise.

To Much For Me

  
                                                     Hello Family, How Are you Today?

Yesterday I was reading this article the top one that say's filthy rich. The story goes like this. This women who lives in New York collects cans and other stuff as you can see in the picture. That's her car by the way she's standing in front of with the graffiti  all over it. This women makes about $25-30 dollars collecting can but.... she's worth 8 million dollars because she owns two brownstones in Harlem that her and her husband got for cheap back in the day. Needless to say she also owns a condo in a nice area that she purchased for $22,000 back in the day.

Now her brownstones are not rented out and they need work but if she were to sell them she would get about 8 million. When I read this story all I could say is wow. She claims picking up cans is a hobby that gets her out of the house and get's her walking.

I mean look at her car it's on it's last leg. If it was me my brownstones would be rented out. I could get about 2-3 thousand a month for the apts if not more. I would at least buy me a new car.  and I know one thing I would leave the can pick up to people who really need the money. Or donate what I make from it.

I am amazed how people with so much money refused to spend some of it on themselves for their betterment or enjoyment. What do you think?

Cheap Summer Parties

Hello Family How Are you today?



                               Cheap Summer Parties Ideas

It's summertime and the parties are easy and cheap/Frugal.  well all like to invite friends over for a good time, Play music, eat good food and have some tasty drinks in the warm weather with out it effecting our pocketbooks to much . So here are some cheap party ideas for the summer.

1.  Throw a  party of your favorite T.V Show. For example Mad Men the theme would be 60's drinks, attire. Or Hawaii Five 0 which would be a Hawaii theme, What about Empire which would be a record label theme you get the point..  Remember the food, drinks and the creativity makes these parties fun.

2. Dollar stores, 99 cents stores. Take a $20 and  go wild making up a cool party  theme with the crazy stuff these stories have.

3. Invite the party to the beach or community pool . Bring the  refreshments and the music and party.

4 With the summer  it means out door events and movies. Take advantage of the free movie night or concert nights you have in your area. Invite your friends bring the refreshments and enjoy the event.

5 Where I live in New York they have food truck festival. that's where a lot of different food truck get together in one place and show off what they sell. This would be a great place to party. The food is already there. The drinks would be on you. Sodas and waters and you have a chance with your friends to sample some good food.   Look for events like this to share with your friends and where you can make a party out of it.

6. Find a spot that is not only pretty but unusual and have a dinner party with your friends. Pizza and sides with a nice bottle of the cheap but good stuff does the trick.

7. We all know potluck barbecue, invite  friend they bring some stuff and we have potluck barbecue.

8 Cool summer desserts party. You can see I love sweets why not plan a summer dessert party with friends. You supply the place, a dessert and the drinks, Your friends supply the other desserts and   the fun.

Summer is a time for fun, friends and good eats on the cheap. Keep your parties fun and simple. Simple food, wines and desserts. Remember it all about the company the rest of the stuff is just the icing  on the cake ( see I told you I love desserts). Have a great summer.

Saving For Health

                                                            Hello My Family How Are You Today?

Well today I am talking to you about a personal situation when it comes to health care. I was in the hospital this past week . I had to have surgery for something. The hospital was suppose to keep me overnight, but they have a policy that they only keep you for 6 hours and send you home because the insurance companies don't want to pay for overnight stays any longer. Anyway being a cheapskate when I was introduce to the doctors who would perform the surgery. First think I asked them if they took my insurance because I did not want any extra bills from this coming my way.

I also told the  nurses that took care of me don't give me any medication that is not covered under my insurance plan. Was I being to cheap with my health? I realized that if it's was not for my partner having good insurance I would be  screwed when it came to my medical expenses. That's why I wanted to tell you that you need  good medical insurance and extra money on the side for medications and co pays. I still have to pay co- pays when I go to the doctors but I am ok with that has long as the insurance company covers the rest. And if you have not notice  Heath Care is expensive

So no matter what insurance you have make sure you set some money aside extra for the unexpected medical cost that insurance companies don't pay for.

Debt Free

                                                 Hello Family, How Are You Today?

                       The Feeling of Being Debt Free

 It's GREAT! But at the same time, life goes on. It contributes to one's happiness, but it is not happiness itself.

Being debt free means your stress level goes down. It means you have more options and flexibility in life. The option to save. The option to live a slightly better everyday lifestyle, or maybe some of both.

Being debt free can set off a "virtuous cycle" whereby you take the money you were putting toward debt payments and apply it to savings/investments. As your savings and investments grow over time, your margin of safety grows. So when life's misfortunes come (job loss, car repairs, etc.), they are at least a little bit easier to take. When you're not desperate, you feel more at ease to negotiate that better salary for yourself and/or don't have to snap at the first job offered. You have the cash available to plan and stock up on things when they're on sale, which grows your margin of safety some more, etc.

I guess I really haven't ever been tempted to slip back into old habits. I basically have permanently raised my standards for what's financially acceptable. That means my 'red alert' button goes off long before most other people's. I try not to wait until there's a crisis to solve a problem. When you're saving a healthy portion of your income (i.e. more than 15%) as a normal thing, then that just becomes your standard for "normal"....and when you dip below your usual savings rate, you view it as a "problem" where most other people wouldn't until they were thousands in debt on their credit cards. Much easier to solve your problems when your savings rate has dipped to 10% than when you are running up credit card debt at double digit interest rates.

I think having long term goals also helps. People who like planning usually do better financially than those who don't. I keep track of my net worth and I like projecting the numbers out toward retirement. When you value flexibility and freedom more than the things money can buy (such as freedom to walk away from a job you hate without worrying where the rent will come from next month), it's easier to stay focused on long term goals. Also, when you realize that after the most basic necessities are covered, having more "stuff" doesn't add all that much to your happiness, it becomes easier to save, so buying things you don't really need just isn't that much of a temptation. Try being debt free you might like it . If not you can always go back to being in debt again.

What Do You Say

                                                     Hello Family How are You Today?

 Some people say being a frugal/cheapskate is about the money. Some say 's it's about the adventures when it comes to  finding ways to save. Some say it's in them and they don't know how else to be. Regardless of why you are a frugal/cheapskate you just are. An I am glad you are your like me. But what happens when your  financial goals are met, you home is paid off, you have no debt , your health is good and you have a nice piece of cash in the bank.. What happens then.? Do you stop and think what is the reason for me saving all this money after my basic needs and goals have been met.

Money to me is freedom. I used to hate getting up early in the morning walking to the bus stop when it was dark. Passing  skunks and raccoon's in the street heading  home after a night out  looking for food. I use to hate having to bring in a doctors note when I was sick to my employers or calling in sick when I just did not feel like working. I felt my life was not my own it was my employers and they could do  anything they wanted with me between 8-4 Monday -Friday and  they did to. I worked my butt off saved as much money as I could and after reaching my saving goal and  with help from  family . I told my employer  " I am out of here" and that was 5 years ago and I don't regret a minute of that decision. Yes I am scared of my future with the money I saved and invested. Hoping that it will last me until I don't need it anymore.  I am scared about my medical insurance  when and if I no longer have it . But while I worry I still enjoy the life and freedom god has given me.

I want you to see that saving money is the price your paying for your freedom. Think about all the things that you want to do but can't because you have to work. Now think about doing all those things because you have your freedom. Makes a big difference.   Is spending money or stuff you don't need or really want  more important then having your freedom. For me it wasn't

To Much $$

                                                Hello Family How Are You Today?

I was reading this article yesterday about Jeff Bezos the worlds riches man. I first thought if that was me I would not want the world to know how rich I was. That could lead to people wanting to do scary things to me or my family. Also one could not spend in their life time 150 billion dollars. What would you spend it on or do with it? After you have purchased all you wants and needs? Also my last thought would be does one person really need all that money we are talking 150 billion dollars. To me that's way past scary money it's frightful money. The article I was reading also stated in order for Jeff to be broke when he passed  away he would have to spend  about 5 million dollars a day. Who the heck could spend that kinda money in a day . If he needs a place to put some of his money.  I would love a condo in Vegas if he would like to donate to the cause.

Half

                                                   Hello Family How Are You Today?



What do you cut in half to save?

 Laundry Detergent- Fill 1/2 the amount suggested.

Dishwasher  Detergent - fill 1/2 as suggested
 
Napkins - usually 1/2 will do

Ice cream, use a cup or  mug
rather than dish or bowl

Serving (portion size), decide how much you want, then take 1/2, don't go for a refill

Pastries, cut in half; leftovers for tomorrow.

Vacations - look at your master plan, then evaluate w/ a reality check (especially if driving). If you are gonna be hurrying just to make tracks, consider 1/2 a trip and enjoy yourself.

 Cut juice/Gatorade with water (it's usually too sweet, anyway).Toothpaste.Soap.
 
When I used to buy facial   face cleaning cloths (like  Olay or the generic), I cut those in half

Admission tickets into special events and coupons for restaurants - I try to use 2 for 1 deals as much as possible. One person pays full price, the other person is free.

Hotel rooms. Sometimes you can get 2 nights for the price of one. 

 I cut in half my aluminum foil. You don't need all that foil to wrap something.

I also personally cut in half my dinners when I go out to dinners I save the rest for lunch the next day.

I cut in half my bars of soap really how much soap do you need to wash up with?

Grateful!!



Hello Family So How Are You Today?
Well today I am not talking about saving money I am talking about being grateful. I was watching a documentary on the Philippines and how they live.  The people who live there are dirt poor and they struggle everyday with the things that we take for granted like running water and food. I was watching this story about these kids who were fathered by foreigners  because their mothers were selling  a good time to these  foreigners  just to put food on the table. I watched men from different parts of the country stop by father a child and get gone. The whole thing was so sad. It go me to thinking that the things that I fuss about when it comes to money  is small compared to how some people are living around the world. 
So yes  I am very grateful to have been born in a country that allows me my basic needs and some luxuries if I want them. Thank you god for your blessings.

Overseas Living



Hello  Family Happy July 1th

I was watching  a few videos yesterday  that talked about moving Overseas because the cost of living is cheaper. One guy moved to Twain and one moved to the  Philippines. In their video they both gave you a glance of what it would cost to live there. Like in  some Asian countries you can get a nice looking apt for about $250 dollars a month. The food ins some of these  Asian countries is pretty darn cheap . For example a good steak dinner would cost you about $9. but you can eat for less then $2 a day in some countries. The  Philippines is about the same cheap living and eating but.... The health care I am not so sure about. Yes the dentist and doctors might be cheaper but what kind of doctors and medical staff are you getting for that kind of money.
There are  some draw back to living in a foreign  country like the dollar rate and the language. The living conditions. Let's not forget the different insects that they have over there that we don't over here . I hate bugs!!!

My questions to you is with a nice social security check or a pension . Knowing that the U.S is expensive to live. Would you ever consider  moving to a cheaper place like a foreign country so that your money could go further?
Let me express that I have seen the good side of living in a foreign country but I feel the bad side of living there would outweigh the good ones.  What do you think?

Cheap Vacation

                                                 Hello Family How Are You Today?


 Saw this in my e mail today and I wanted to share it with you. NCL is offering Free stuff at sea and the deposit is only $1. I think I could find a dollar. All I have to do is rolled some coins. I was looking in to cheap cruising out of  New York. I try not to pay no more then $2000 for two people with a lot of perks for my $$. I did not see anything that I liked but I am still looking. 

 For a cheapskate like me if I can get  free stuff and cheap cruising that would be a great vacation for me because my hotel, restaurant and  entertainment is all in one place.  Plus I am going to places that I have never been to sounds good to me.

Good Movie

                                                        Hello Family Happy Monday


 Over the weekend I picked up this movie about J. Paul Getty one of the riches men in is time. I am talking this man was cheap. He did buy a lot of stuff but he didn't spend on what he thought was unnecessary staff.  Anyway his grandson get's kidnapped.  The kidnapper want a lot of money to return him. This movie was very good and it taught you a lesson in how all the money in the world could not buy you happiness and love.  Getty was a hot mess in this movie. If you like movies about money and craziness then I would recommend you  watching this. Trust me you will learn a thing or two in the end. I know I did.

Summertime



                              
                           
Hello Family How Are You Today?
          
Summertime is here and The Vacations should be cheap & easy
                                   
Think about short 2-3 day trips  Places where you can go and relax near you that would not cot a lot of $$.  A place that you can drive to within say 2-3 hours. For me I go to Atlantic City it's about a 3 hour drive from NYC and it offer beaches, restaurants, good food and the hotels gives me free room and discounts on my food. If I am lucky I get gambling $$ to

What about taking the kids to amusement parks that are not so popular for the summer. I was looking on youtube and I see a lot of places that have parks and places to stay cheap. Places like Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky. These places you can stay and have entertainment for your children at less then it would cost you to go to Disney world

Look for cheap 2-3 day cruises. I have seen them for under $1000. It's a cheap and relaxing vacation. Especially if you live inn or around Florida you can cruise for almost  next to nothing.

Looking in to companies that offer day trip in and around where you live. I used to see a bus company where I lived offer day or overnight  trips to people. They would go to Washington, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania  These places were a couple hours away from New York by bus and the prices for these trips were cheap at the time 

Family if you get along with family that live out of state why not ask them if you could visit for a day or two. That way you stay with them  no hotel cost. But do offer to pay for the food and anything extra the week your staying with them.

Look for cheap deals like airfare. I always see where JetBlue is going when they have a $59 one way deal. Hey I can go to west bubble if the place has a hotel and it's cheap to get there.

This is a short list of suggestions. Just because we are frugal/cheapskates doesn't mean that we need not take a vacation. You need to enjoy your life that's what we are frugal/cheap for right so that we can enjoy some of the nice stuff in life.

Yard Sale Season


                                                         Hello  Family Happy Sunday

Hello Family. Yard sale/Garage sale season is here and here are my thoughts on it. Now is the time to get your money right and hit the yard sales hard and heavy. Because this is the place where your gifts are coming from, Your graduation gifts, wedding gifts, holiday gifts, just because gifts. I have seen people in my area selling brand new stuff for pennies that would make great gifts. So be on the look out for your gifts this year in yard sale/garage sales.

Also have one yourself to so you can get back the money you will be spending at others people's yardsales/garage sales. When your out shopping take your water, something lite to eat and no more then $ 25 to spend. That's what I do so I know in my mind that I can not go over $25 for the day.

2. Consider ordering fresh flowers from your grocery store and making  your own bouquets and table arraignments. Buy a few flowers get  some ribbons and see what you end up with.

3. Make your own food for your reception. Enlist your family help, but it wouldn't take much to make your own. You can make a salad , lasagna and bread, mixed veggie bowls, meatballs will feed 250 people. You can also get a  sheet cake from the big warehouse stores.

4. Look for your wedding dress and your brides maid's dresses in thrift store or off the internet for a better discount. I have seen my local thrift store with a large selection of wedding dresses at $50-100 dollars depending upon the details and the size of the dress.

5. For church decorations be creative and shop at craft stores to see what you can get and do to decorate  the church and reception.  You can get your ribbons, flowers, lace, table cloths designs  at craft stores.  You can ask the people working there what your looking for they might have some great ideas for you.

6. Don't forget your local dollar store for your wine glasses, decorations, plates and dishes, lighting. They have a ton of stuff in their inventory that you can use for your wedding day.

7 Wedding invitation you can search for some nice ones off the internet or make they yourself and go to staples to have them print it up for you. What I am seeing now is that people who are getting married are using  the internet to send the invitations. there by  skipping on the postage fees.

8 You could get married at the courthouse and have a small dinner for just the immediate family at a local all you can eat place. If you just want the basic's for your wedding.

9. For music for your wedding pick a local band or DJ and barter with them for their services. Or get a friend to make you some mixed music  cds and get a cd player  and have one of your guest play DJ for the day. changing the cds when necessary.

10. Look on Craig's list or offer up for items from someone else's wedding that are being sold for cheap.

11. For the reception for your drinks have wines, beers and juice. cut's down on the cost of expensive liquor.

12. If your doing party favors, go simple. Most people do not do much with the party favors from a wedding.  Why not put  candy in a little cute container or small vase with a ribbon around it  by each plate with  a printed paper on them saying date/name of the bride  and groom.

13. Doing your make up and hair for the bride and bridesmaids can be done by doing it yourself or have a friend who's really great with makeup and hair see if they can do it. if you must use a professional see if you can get a group discount. Same with getting your nails done think group discounts.

14.  Taking wedding photos use a professional and try and get a discount if he does the photos  and videos. You can also try and get a photographer that is just starting out I bet his prices would be better then the more seasoned one. 

15. Car services to the wedding. Forget the limos and fancy cars. Have  friends with a nice classic car drive you to the church.  who care what the bride rides up in as long as she get's there on time.

Lazy

                                                    Hello Family How Are you Today?

Is being lazy costing you money?

I was reading something yesterday about being lazy and here's what it said. By being lazy it's costing you money and this is how.
1. Your are eating out in fast food/restaurants most of the time and not cooking at home.

2. Your buying your kids to many video games and not showing them how to play outside and use their imagination

3. You miss opportunities to make extra money because you don't want to do more then you have to.

4. You leave the investing and saving to others because you could not be so bothered doing it.

5. Buying more gas for our cars instead of taking alternative transportation9 biking, walking, Catch a ride with friends)

6. Buying food we can grow ourselves.

7. Shopping for clothing and such without thinking about the price. You just walk into a store and get what you need no matter the cost.

8. Not paying any attention to our retirement funds & services that our employers offer. Your just winging it until retirement.

9 Not pay attention to our money, Your just throwing money at things just so it could leave you alone.

10. Not paying attention to our health is the biggest waste., Bad health mean spending a lot of money to have your health corrected.

I am sure you can think of more these are just a few that I read about.
