Shop Your Closet Challenge
- Created on 04 April 2013
I am loving the monthly challenges. Hopefully they are helping you focus and build useful skills needed to slay your debt dragon. Last month, we worked on building our budgeting muscles with the 30 Day Budget Challenge thanks to our friends, the Debt Free Squad. April ushers in the spring season and a great reason to shop in your own closet.

Do you dream of being debt free? Coach Jeff of the Debt Free Squad brings the motivational heat with this final video. This is the final week of the 30 Day Budget Challenge. You’ve reached the finish line, but the work is just getting started. The lessons learned over the last month need to be applied regularly going forward. The more practice you have, the more comfortable you’ll be with operating on a monthly budget. Keep your dream alive and you’ll cross the debt free finish line for sure.
Enslaved by Lifestyle Inflation
- Created on 22 March 2013
Inflation is defined as:
A general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.
Basically, it takes more money to purchase the same item in the future than it does today. As I read, the cause of inflation can be attributed to various factors. Bunches of smart people have yet to agree fully. The term is bandied about here and there, but I rarely lose sleep over it. Lifestyle inflation is more personal. This impacts us in a very tangible way, yet can be just as gradual.
