New series: 10 ways to put money back into your budget without stopping the fun stuff!

The economy has been brutal to many and putting money back into the budget would be helpful to many families. Over the next several weeks, online I am going to write 10 posts covering easy, advice practical methods to reduce your spending without ending your daily Starbucks run, Sonic happy hour or eating out on Fridays. Alternatively, your conscience may speak and encourage you to begin giving more to your church or a ministry in need!

If you apply the ten ideas I will share with you, I believe you will have the potential of putting $100-$400 per month back into your budget. Some of you may know and already be applying some of these ideas, but together they can dramatically help you improve your monthly cash flow.

The first series post will be Friday, May 20th at www.dadcents.com/blog. Please share this with your friends!!!

11-18-2010 Proverbs 18

Proverbs Post #23-

Today I was reading in chapter 18, tadalafil and verse 11 jumped out to me today.  It says:

18:11 The wealth of a rich person is like a strong city, price
and it is like a high wall in his imagination.

“The wealth of a rich person is like a strong city, stuff ” which provides protection. Money can offer protection and shield us from some things.  Our possessions can offer a roof over our head, protection for our bodies and sustenance for our bodies.

“It is like a high wall in his imagination,” offers a different view point that we are accustomed to hearing.  Our money only gives us the feeling of protection, like a high wall, but in reality can be gone in an instant!  Do you have a good job?  Do you have a nice house?  Do you have a large investment portfolio?  They can be gone in moments.

Where do you place your trust?

I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well.  Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts.

10:4 The one who is lazy becomes poor,
but the one who works diligently becomes wealthy.


This is another outstanding verse for parents!  “The one who is lazy becomes poor,” is a great picture for kids.  Do your kids seem to have trouble helping you with chores but then have unlimited energy to go out and play?  Motivation plays a huge role in kid’s laziness. › Continue reading
