20 Garage Sale Tools You’ll Need To Attract Buyers

SELLING YOUR STUFF IS COMPARABLE TO RUNNING A BUSINESS- EITHER YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY OR YOU DON’T.   Local garage sales for 2017 are slowly popping up as Spring has finally arrived but you’ll find the end of May into June, July and August the biggest garage sale months of the year. Typically garage sales kick-off on the Victoria Day long weekend at the end of May when most people poke their heads out from inside closed doors. It’s as if it’s safe to come outside. For those eager sale seekers there are people who host a garage sale as soon as the birds start chirping at the end of March. Spring cleaning is in full-swing with windows opened to let the fresh air circulate through the musty wintered house. This is also the time homeowners and renters realize they have far too much stuff. Mrs. CBB and I decided that this summer we were going to hold our first CBB garage sale and get rid of stuff once and for all. I’m a firm believer that any time I’m out to make/save money that I treat whatever I’m doing like it’s a business. A garage sale is a […]

6 Simple Ideas To Generate Cash Money When You’re Broke

THERE’S ALWAYS A WAY TO EARN CASH MONEY PROVIDED YOU’RE READY FOR A CHALLENGE   There are some ways to make cash money when you’re broke but don’t expect to be rolling in the cash without some hard work. With Spring around the corner there will be more opportunities to make cash money rather than shovelling snow and praying you win TV Bingo. Wishing on a star is the worst way to earn cash money because you’re risking losing money you already don’t have to spend.   Cashing out the Cash Money   The first thing someone does when they are broke is find every possible source of cash money then could have. A friend of ours who was strapped for cash went as far cash in her RRSP’s so she could pay off debt. I don’t recommend going this route if you don’t have to however depending on a few factors such as age such as this might be an option. If you are under 30 you’ll have a far better chance of getting back into the investing game with many years to accumulate as opposed to being close to retirement age.

Both mental and physical distractions while cooking can produce a ruined meal, injury, death or damage to your house or apartment. Don’t turn your kitchen into an episode of Kitchen Nightmares. It’s so easy to get caught up in everyday life that when we get home it’s tough to turn off from the work day. How we choose to try and do that may affect the way we prepare meals in the kitchen and potentially your wallet depending on the outcome.

Change Your Financial Behaviour From Zoom To Panoramic View : The Saturday Weekend Review #163

LET YOUR MIND TAKE THE WHEEL   Changing your financial behaviour to take on a frugal perspective is the first motivational step to help you to achieve your money goals and become rich with freedom from debt. If your financial behaviour consists of creating debt and losing sleep over how you will pay for it then you need a wake-up call and you need it now.

Just as a photographer may pan out to showcase an entire landscape it’s important to view your finances from this perspective. Simply zooming in on one aspect of your debt hoping things will change for the better is not the only solution. Look at your financial house from all angles to successfully carry out a debt reduction plan and build the wealth you dream of. Too many people these days think that money grows on trees with low interest rates enticing us to shop. With the availability of credit it’s easy to get into a vicious […]
