Money Is A Resource Not To Be Confused With A Power Tool : The Saturday Weekend Review #164

THE WEALTH OF PERSPECTIVE TELLS US THAT NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS   If you love money and I mean REALLY love money don’t ever let it push you over the edge to submerge those you love with a life of unhealthy behaviours which includes embarrassing yourself. My wife and I hardly consider ourselves rich BUT some people may because we no longer have a mortgage, we are young and I earn an good income and love my career. We never use our blessings in a manner which demonstrates rudeness towards others rather we contribute to society in a giving way. Related: How we became mortgage free in 5 years This blog is an example of how we want to motivate others to become debt free while building our own relationship together. The budget never stopped for us when the debt was gone. Throughout the years we’ve used money to help us understand how it affects our relationship and how to continue growing as a couple. Money is one of the main reasons people divorce these days and we don’t want to become a statistic so we work on US. Money is just, well money. Related: Rebuilding Life and Finances […]

Would you rent a converted garage for $1000 to live in the big city? : The Saturday Weekend Review #112

WANTED: A PLACE TO CALL HOME   Some people will rent the weirdest places for absurd amounts of money just to live in the big city. There is an allure of being in the midst of the rich and famous, potential career opportunities or to be close to loved ones even if the price-tag is high.   Capture the big city living dream   Not everyone understands the attraction of living in the big city especially if you can’t afford to live in it. For those that do successfully life can be an opportunity that many people could only dream of. If you are looking to buy a house in let’s say a big city like Toronto or Vancouver get ready to pay upwards of a million dollars to live where all the action happens. The fun doesn’t stop there because buying a house can be just as challenging as finding the right place to rent. We live in the Greater Toronto Area and I can assure you that houses are NOT cheap to buy. A one bedroom rental can run you upwards of $800 a month to more than a thousand plus. On the low end it’s not the […]

Do we ignore the poor people? : The Saturday Weekend Review #67

NOT SHY TO SPEAK UP BUT EASY TO IGNORE   Many of us have a helping hand when it comes to helping the poor by donating your time by volunteering, fund-raising etc. I watched this video this morning called “F the poor” which I will share with you below but what is ironic in the video is how people react to a strong message and what they consider to be powerful words. When people are on the streets going about their daily chores and actually see homeless poor people asking for help many turn a blind eye. No one asks to live in poverty yet circumstances are sometimes beyond our control. Some people even shake their heads in disgust and have nasty words to say like, “get a job” or calling the poor “lazy”. Most often it’s the opposite and they’d do anything for someone to reach out or recognize them. It’s true though, without a job how can you make any money? I can’t tell you what life is like being poor as I’ve never been there and I won’t even try to explain to you what emotions some must feel. I’m sure their motivation has decreased and they […]
