I was often told that my life would be a great story to tell. What’s so great about my life? Nothing.
I hate to admit, but at the age of 30 I am completely disappointed in myself. I’m disappointed that I’ve constantly blamed the people I love for my circumstances. I’m disappointed that I never listened to the good advices that people gave me. I’m disappointed that I’m not to my full potential. I’ve dreamt big dreams but I never put my all into anything. So what am I to do?
I don’t think I have a huge amount of debt compared to others, but I have debt. Debt is like this crazy Venus fly trap that slowly closes down on you and saps you of your ability to live. I feel stressed when money even comes to mind. I get stressed and frustrated when I constantly try to figure out how to get out of this mess. Actually, I just want to run away. When I get my paycheck, I spend it right away. That’s my problem.
So in order to get somewhere, I’ve created this blog just to document my journey. Feel free to read along because I know other people are in my situation or can relate. Feel free to even comment for some advice.
I read in a book that in order to truly start making money I need to eliminate bills as much as possible.
This is what they look like:
T-Mobile: $200 per month
Lowest I can make it: $100 per month
Action: Pay off $1609.75
Gas: $120 per month
Car Insurance: $65 per month
Gym Membership: $21.05 per month
Best Buy: $2496.00
Food varies, but I’m hoping that I could eventually factor that in. My problem has always been money. I’ve always purchased the latest gadget. I always ended up trading my things for something of lower value. I was never really satisfied. My soul is literally craving for something and nothing seems to work. In order to get out of the mess I am in, I need to most likely lower my T-Mobile first. The other part of me is saying that I should pay off Best Buy each week until it’s gone. Interest builds up after all. Either way, the first step is to just pay something.
Here’s my journey towards making that $50,000.
