Hi All. I don’t think I’ve ever had to budget in my life but now I
do because I have a serious back injury, and I cannot work right
now, and I have $35k in debt that is quickly becoming an issue.
With a six-figure income, a measley $35k isn’t an issue, but now
with no work, debt, a large mortgage, etc., it IS.
I’ve started a web site to collect donations in exchange for
recipes, or some type of entertainment to visitors (again, all new
to me so I’ve asked their help in what they’d like to see in
exchange for (optional) donations…. I don’t believe in asking for
$$, or simply “panhandling,” without providing a service of sorts in
exchange. The site is http://www.injuryfund.com and I’m open to ALL
suggestions. I just put it up so the recipes section isn’t there
yet, which I’m planning to have there as part of the service.
So, my first question to all of you veteran budgeters:
When you first began to budget, what would you say is the single
most important thing (or initial thingS) you had to adjust. Again,
I am new at this. I was the person earning a great living that
never needed to check prices at the grocery, etc. So, besides “not
going out and buy a Mercedes,” (lol) what are some crucial points of
All is appreciated!
By the way, I put up some stuff on eBay too which, hopefully, will
bring in some interim cash.
