Used Goods Are Popular With Consumers for Two Reasons

BUY SOMETHING NEW ON SALE OR BUY SOMETHING USED ON SALE   Not all items at the second-hand shop are used goods but for the most part when you walk into a store that carries products that were donated you can expect to find treasures as far as the eye can see. Both Mrs. CBB and I spend about an hour each week shopping for used goods but various reasons which some people may not understand, care about or think is ridiculous since we are debt free. What are used goods? Essentially, used goods are items that were purchased or hand-down to someone who no longer wants them so they donate them or give them away. You can find used goods at garage sales, second-hand shops, bazaars, auctions and even consignment stores. The idea around used goods is that they are sold for a fraction of the retail cost which intrigues buyers who simply don’t want to pay top dollar when they can get it cheaper. Some people just love the hunt or the walk down memory lane because the amount of vintage you see amazes me. Last week my wife found animated glasses that she collected as a child […]

The Ultimate Guide To Portion Sizes And Your Grocery Budget : The GGC #2 June 11-17

THE SECRET TO PORTION SIZES AND GROCERY SAVINGS IS IN YOUR HANDS   You eat more, you spend more, there’s no round about way to cover this up. Before we start I just want to say that this is not about a diet it’s about a way of life and how eating healthy and with-in the limits of our body is very important to our well-being and our wallet. A PORTION DIET ISN’T A DIET AT ALL… It’s a way of life. It’s so easy to over-eat especially when we don’t take portion size into consideration. Many of you would probably admit to never reading nutrition labels and have no idea what a portion sizes of cereal is. I bet you’d be shocked to find out you probably eat enough cereal in one sitting for two to three people. I know, I’ve pretty much come to realize that portion size is my best friend when learning how to control the amount of nutrition that goes into my body. Since our son was born I haven’t been running as much as I used to and working out has went from every day to a few times a week or when I […]

The Ultimate Guide To Simple Kitchen Downsizing : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #1 June 5-11

TOUR OUR KITCHEN FROM BULK TO THE MINIMALIST SLIM VERSION   Smart kitchen ideas start with an organized clean kitchen for you to prepare healthy meals without wasting time, energy and money. Look around your kitchen and think about the stuff that you have and consider the last time you’ve used it. I’ll wait here until you come back. Kitchen downsizing has become a new trend for 2017 among our circle of friends because they are feeling the dollar crunch. They aren’t buying as much and they are selling what they have too much of, us included. When looking to buy a new house your realtor may tell you to forget about the stuff the current owner has and imagine the room without it. Some homeowners hire a home staging company to help them downsize their belongings to make the home seem larger. When you buy a house the idea of enjoying that large space can easily be chopped when you start filling it up with stuff. Not only do you lose space but you create an environment for more cleaning and dust. We know from experience. We took a proactive approach the last month to tackle kitchen downsizing by […]

Network Marketing: What is it and is it right for you?

Do You Have What It Takes To Make Extra Money We could all use a little extra cash at times and they are various ways of earning that money to supplement your income whether it is through online surveys or simply cutting your neighbours grass. But what if you could own your own business with a minimal investment, requiring as much or as little time as you want to devote to it, work from home and have all the training and support needed given to you for free?  Would you consider Network Marketing? What is Network Marketing? By definition from Wikipedia Network marketing is a strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only on sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit. This recruited sales force is referred to as the participants ‘downline’ and can provide multiple levels of compensation. So basically what this means is you sell a product or service while getting other people to join your sales team from which you receive a portion of their sales, who then go on and recruit more people to join and so on. The more products you sell and the […]
