7 Things Not to Give Up When You Are in Debt (and paying off debt)

paying off debt

  I still remember the shock of realizing how much debt we had – after all, it is not every day you hear you are in $160,000 of consumer debt. How is so much debt to be paid off? (I am not big on suspense, so I’d tell you: we paid off $160,000 of consumer debt in three years, and we have lived debt-free since February 2013.) But let me get back to when I found out we are in so much debt. At first, I went numb. Later, I got angry. I was furious with my husband, with myself, […] Read more »

Paying for Long-Term Health Care Utilizing a Reverse Mortgage

Wisdom might come with getting older, but unfortunately so can physical and mental ailments that leave an elderly individual entirely dependent on the medical system for maintaining their health.

According to the loan experts at All Reverse […] Read more »

Understanding These Two Types of Risk Will Help You Invest Better

When you talk to a financial advisor, either to get advice about retiring, getting out of debt, or even how to invest, you will likely hear them use the term “risk tolerance”. In some cases, they may even give you a risk tolerance questionnaire to fill out. Higher risk tolerance means you can take more risks with your investments, which usually means higher returns. However, your risk tolerance is not the only type of risk you need to think about as you also need to think about your risk capacity. Why Understanding Risk Tolerance Is Not Enough Before investing, you […] Read more »

Fist Pump Friday: I Love You Like A Blogger Roundup – 4/30/21

I went grocery shopping yesterday.  On the surface that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it out of the norm for me because normally Saturday is grocery shopping day.  Here’s the thing: Everybody goes grocery shopping on Saturday.  The stores are super “peopley.”  It’s not a big deal when the list is short, but when I need a lot of things from several stores having to squeeze through people loitering in the middle of aisles starts to get on my nerves.  I start to get that, “I just wanna be done,” mentality.  When this happens I may not think […] Read more »

Be Mindful Of Your Spending…or Else!

Let’s try something a little different today, EOD Nation. Instead of a single subject blog post, I’ve got two quick hits for you. Both are personal experiences I’ve had in the last week. Both are good examples that you have to keep your eye on your money at all times. Free Sample Machine or Marketing Ploy? “Would you like a free sample?” said the machine at the end of the dairy aisle in Walmart. Each time I passed, it squawked at me. After several passes I noted the product being advertised. I found myself interested in checking it out. The […] Read more »

How to Get Out of Debt and Improve Your Mental Health

Being in debt can be worrying enough, but when that debt becomes unmanageable, it can have serious consequences on your mental health, relationships and all aspects of your life. Unfortunately, in 2020 Citizens Advice estimated that 6 million Brits fell behind on their priority debts due to loss of income. They also estimated that the average person would take almost three years to pay back just these debts — assuming that they used their entire disposable income to do so. Managing Debt If your debt problems lessen, so will the feelings of worry. The road to financial freedom can be […] Read more »

Fist Pump Friday: I Love You Like A Blogger Roundup – 4/23/21

Happy Friday, EOD Nation!  I’m so excited about this weekend!  I’ll be firing up my smokers for the first time in months.  Last night I smoke chicken legs, Saturday I’m doing briskets, and on Sunday I’m doing pork shoulders for pulled pork and another brisket that has been swimming in brine for about a week for pastrami. Oh and I’m bringing some of the brisket over to a friend’s house on Saturday night for food and game night. Fist pump for smoking meat, fun with friends and my favorite posts of the week!

4 More Things I Gladly Pay For

I’m a huge fan of DIY. I’m willing to do things that I’m familiar with, but I’m also more than willing to learn a new skill, when it makes sense. Having my lawn thatched last week reminded me of a post I wrote awhile back listing things I don’t mind paying for. Here’s another four things for which I gladly pull out my wallet. Garage Door Spring Replacement Above every garage door is a big spring. The tension of the wound up spring helps lift your garage door. When it wears out, it breaks. When this happens you might be […] Read more »

Fist Pump Friday: I Love You Like A Blogger Roundup – 4/16/21

I opened my front door to find my neighbor waiting with a piece of paper in his hand. He had contacted a lawn service to thatch his lawn, and they were coming the next day. He handed me the number stating since the guy as going to be in the neighborhood he’d probably be willing to do more yards while he was in the neighborhood. While I opt to do my own fertilizing, I gladly called the lawn service and agreed to pay $100 to have my lawn thatched as well.  I would rake my whole yard, but it would […] Read more »

Being Actively Involved In Medical Visits Can Save You Thousands

Modern medicine can do miraculous things. But the cost of those miracles can be enough to send your blood pressure through the roof. Doctors understandably tend to be cautious when diagnosing health issues. Sometimes, asking questions and getting a second opinion could save your thousands of dollars. Personal Experience My wife saw a family medicine doctor on a Friday afternoon for some pain she was experiencing. The doctor had an idea what was causing the pain, and stated the treatment was likely antibiotics, but ordered blood work to be sure. About an hour after returning home, the doctor called very […] Read more »
