Learn How to Recession Proof Your Finances
These penny pincher pages will show you how to deal with bills and debt and still have a life.
Our world runs on money and therefore holds a lot of power.
I look at money three different ways
- It buys freedom. Freedom from the boss, bills, house payments, etc.
- It offers security. If there's money in the bank, you know your bills will be paid and there will be food on the table.
- It's said that money can't buy happiness. But, it sure can buy your way out of financial misery and if you're a happy person to begin with, money is icing on the cake.
So, how do we become a penny pincher and learn to manage our money? Especially during these uncertain economic times.
