There can be an enormous difference in what each family spends on their groceries, depending on many factors, such as whether they buy name brand, more meat, etc.

The good news is that this allows for a large amount of savings if we decide to be frugal with our shopping. Following a few simple tips will have you well on your way to saving a few bucks.

1.) Make a meal plan. You’ll know exactly what you need from the store before you go.

2.) Watch for specials and coupons in store newsletters, and plan your meals around them.

3.) Make a list and stick to it. If its not on the list, then just don’t buy it.

4.) Never shop when you are really hungry. That way you wonít be tempted to buy things that you don’t need.

5.) Shop alone. Count on your bill being higher when you bring your spouse or children.

6.) Only buy things you know youíll use. For example, if your family doesnít like broccoli, donít buy broccoli in the hopes that theyíll eat healthier this week.

7.) Keep your eyes on the items on the bottom shelf where the prices are lower.

8.) Buy store brands when the quality is the same. Most of the time, it actually is the same product in a different package.

It is pretty easy to be frugal once you realize how much money youíre actually saving with these simple steps. Keep a log of your grocery bills, so you can see how much of a difference you are making. Have you ever noticed that the things you buy every week at the grocery and hardware stores go up a few cents between shopping trips? Not by much…just by a little each week but they continue to creep up and up.

  • All it takes for the price to jump up by a lot is a little hiccup in the world wide market, note the price of gasoline as it relates to world affairs.

There is a way that we can keep these price increases from impacting our personal finances so much and that is by buying in quantity and finding the best possible prices for the things we use and will continue to use everyday… things that will keep just as well on the shelves in our homes as it does on the shelves at the grocery store or hardware store.

For instance, dog food and cat food costs about 10% less when bought by the case than it does when bought at the single can price and if you wait for close out prices you save a lot more than that. Set aside some space in your home and make a list of things that you use regularly which will not spoil. Any grain or grain products will need to be stored in airtight containers that rats can’t get into so keep that in mind.

Then set out to find the best prices you can get on quantity purchases of such things as bathroom items and dry and canned food. You will be surprised at how much you can save by buying a twenty pound bag of rice as opposed to a one pound bag but don’t forget that it must be kept in a rat proof container.

You can buy some clothing items such as men’s socks and underwear because those styles don’t change, avoid buying children’s and women’s clothing, those styles change and sizes change too drastically. Try to acquire and keep a two year supply of these items and you can save hundreds of dollars.

1 of 9 in Series: The Essentials of Finding and Applying for a Grant

Laying out a funding development plan is the first step to becoming proactive in grant seeking and grant writing. Both non-profit and for-profits organizations can benefit from a good plan for getting funding. Here are the parts of an all-purpose funding development plan:

Mission statement: A mission statement tells funders your purpose or vision for being a structured nonprofit or for-profit organization. The mission statement should include the name of your organization, its structural status (nonprofit or for-profit), the year it was formed, and its purpose (reason for organization).

Make this statement clear and impactful, reflecting your vision. If you already have a mission statement, maybe it creates more confusion than clarity. Take a long look at your existing mission statement and ask yourself whether you need to rewrite that statement.

Assessment of funding needs: What programs and services do you want to offer? Where is the funding coming from — internal or external sources? Ask and answer questions about your organization’s financial strengths, as well as its financial weaknesses. Also, consider what funding opportunities are available to your organization and what threats to funding your organization faces.

Funding goals: How much money do you need to raise from external funding sources for each program or service?

Your goals should be global and futuristic; they should describe where you want to be when the grant money runs out.

Funding objectives: What benchmarks do you want to set to assure that you reach these funding goals?

Your goals can’t stand alone. You’ll never accomplish anything if your goals aren’t supported by objectives. Objectives act as benchmarks or reference points; they’re measurable steps that must be taken in order to achieve your goals. And every goal must have at least one objective.

Action plan: What are the annual tasks, over three to five years, that must be completed in order to make your funding development plan a reality?

In the action plan part of your organization’s funding development plan, you need to sort your funding needs into categories of for each program or service that needs external funding or grant monies.

Monitoring and evaluation of funding objectives: How can your organization track and prove that the project’s measurable objectives were met and at what levels? What are your evaluation tools?

You need to determine how your organization will track and evaluate your funding plan’s objectives. In this part of the funding development plan, make sure to mention who’ll conduct the monitoring and evaluation activities and who’ll see or review the evaluation findings or reports.

After you write your funding development plan, stick to it. Before writing any grant requests, first make sure that the grant fits into your plan. Be organized, stay focused, and follow your funding plan’s road map to success and stability.

Conserving Money While in a Tough Economy: Is It Possible?

Piggy bank china

A Recession is a phrase that floods most people with concern and poor thoughts. A recession is another word for a ‘tough economy’. It’s a time historically poor for growing finances, a period of time capable of significantly diminishing your dollar’s value pretty fast. Economic Downturns have been said to also instantly raise the expense of a standard lifestyle. During times like these, people often ask, ‘How can I continue to save during an economic depression?’ The response is: By simply intending to! If you’re creative and need to be clever you can change things. Here are some strategies you should implement to save money during a tough time:

 

Plan your purchases.

By planning your purchases, you’re effectively planning your expenses. This will help eliminate the danger of impulse buying and unnecessary spending. Try to look at the bigger picture when it comes to your basic needs.

Plan for a week’s worth of groceries, for example, so you’ll have an idea of which items you truly need (and want) and which items you can do away with. To make sure that you maximize your planning efforts, consider incorporating items on sale into your planning. If there are foods on sale that week, such as, why not plan your week’s menu using what’s on sale?

 

Implement operation ‘S.P.’

SP is Short for Spending plan. If you want to be capable of saving money through a financial downturn, it is crucial to encourage and use willpower with you and your household. Utilizing your plan as a guide, write a monthly spending plan then adhere to it. If you decide to override it, you really should have a very good explanation for that. Or else, don’t override your monthly budget.

 

Look for great buys and special discounts.

Keep an eye on stores for periodic sales. You will spend less money by shopping for items on sale than for their normal price ranges. While in a recession, it’s just smart spending to look before you buy. Also, look at various retailer and classifieds promotions. Ask for alternate buying choices, if one option is outside of your budget. Grab store rebates and discount coupons too. Take into account shopping at discount outlets also. Every dollar you do not pay out is a greenback you save.

 

Buy in volume.

The goods in your home that are typically in use like paper towels, cleaning supplies, your favorite foods etc., you should look at buying in bulk. Numerous stores offer you items in bulk, meaning you will save funds in the end when you invest in mass quantities of your choice rather than paying for single merchandise.

 

Wait on buying larger expenditures.

A good way to decide if a purchase can wait is to think about it first, when you cannot pay for it out right without regret then, do not buy it. Instead you can plan when to buy it. Case in point, you only have adequate funds for a deposit on a new flat screen but have to use money from your charge card just to buy it. In the meanwhile you will not actually have enough cash money to buy the t.v. for at least 10 weeks. Why go into debt when your goal is to save money? This gift can absolutely wait honestly! Wouldn’t you agree that it’s not a good idea to make a spend without proper resources? Why feel guilty about what you buy. Basically wait until you can really afford what you want or plan out a way to get it later. The worst thing you can do while in a tough economy is not only failing to save but also falling into financial debt.

 

Prevention is the cure.

Just think, there are a number of things you do in your home that are wasting your hard earned dollars every day. Utilize simple measures like restoring and preserving your property and home appliances. Use good quality equipment and cut down on pointless use are capable of doing amazing things for your wallet.
Bring in more money.

 

Now, if after all your attempts to save, you still haven’t saved enough, don’t allow recession get you down. Remember this too shall pass. Sometimes your best efforts won’t be enough. It could be because you didn’t make enough money. Never ask for a raise when you’re feeling desperate or defeated unless you can handle the answer of yes or no after you ask. Also don’t be surprised if you find yourself waiting even longer for a promotion just because you stepped out on a limb and asked at the wrong time. Its alright to take a risk too, since you’ll never know until you ask, right?

 

Alternately if you don’t want to risk asking or waiting for a raise you can opt for a side job, take on extra working hours, or even offer your ability as a freelance worker. The additional money you will earn, coupled with your tough economy-motivated cash-conserving plan, will allow you to continually save money until finally, the challenging times are through.

Time Management: A Proven Blueprint of An Absolute Winner!

Life is full of blissful opportunities that give us a fair chance to get better each and everyday. I know you may be saying ‘yeah right’. Just wait, I’m sure you’ll agree with me after you hear a little more. Trust me, its not the easiest task to get into a routine for most people, i get that. I know all about the challenges that come with having to choose to do what most of us want to do but most people want the structure and benefits of a routine only without doing the work on the front end.

 

There always has and will be a simple way to do almost everything. Now one key to getting into an assassin proof routine is to first INTEND IT! I’ll say it again, its easy to create a routine, but you have to do some prep work to put it together first. All routines start with a great idea! Its well known that all people have the same choices to improve themselves at any given time in life, but only if they want to of course.

 

In short, we are the only ones who are responsible for our actions. Obstructions will come and go along the way. The most amazing thing is that we have a choice to do better at anytime and that challenges will come as well. Just think about it, when these life altering situations come, we know we have another great reason to make a real change in our lives and for the better too.

 

Do you think time management will be hard? It will be whatever you make it. I know your schedule is in hyper overload mode plus there is so much going on in the midst of your life. Just hear me out now. Answer this for me: Do you get out of the best fussing and falling all over the place, wishing that you could do something else? Do you gulp down coffee and other stimulants its your last cup of water, only to find that you don’t have any energy in the end? And when you do feel energy, it feels more like an adrenaline rush before a race than real sustainable energy. Hey we have all been there or someone of us have at least.

 

Take a deep breath and know this, You don’t have to rush to do anything. Its time to take your time back and start living balanced and fruitfully. Do you often wish you could be more organized, only your brain isn’t doing what you had planned for it to do for you, when you need it to? If this is you some of the time, even if its only YOU once a month its time to make a change. Its time to take to the bridge, To move a mountain and master this thing!

 

You can do this time thing, contrary to what somebody may have told you.  Trust me when I say this… You Don’t have to like organization or schedules to get into the Art of Personal Time Management.  You just don’t. I know you’re probably thinking ‘why should I do anything that I’m not interested in?’ I hear you loud and clear! That’s some of the best logic but that’s not what we’re doing this for. It’s not about logic and comforting our ‘likes’. It’s about one thing and that’s all! YOU want something different. So you gotta change the game to make scoring possible, otherwise you may never get to the next step on your latter of accomplishments. Is it safe to say that you would enjoy a more efficient day? Alright now, let’s talk about how you can get there.

 

Planning has never been considered a fun thing to do, at least not for the majority of the world anyway. However I’m going to show you why planning is easier than you ever thought it was. Planning is fun, it can be if even it’s not now. Trust me on this,  once you see the benefits of a well thought out and executed plan you, that’s it! You will enjoy the fruits of your labor that much more. Once you have a list of what you want to do better or more efficiently, the next step is to get to work on how you’re going to complete this.

 

Allow me to give an example: For instance if you want to make a simple change like: get to work earlier, you have to plan a new routine to do it. I know you might be saying to yourself…’But why would I want to do that, get to work early?’. I know you may think I’m crazy by now but hear me out.

 

If getting to work early was one of your goals, say to yourself: That’s easy! Now measure the pro’s against the co’s to motivate you that much more! Benefits: The early employee gets all the good stuff. I know you’ve heard the phrase ‘the early bird gets the worm.’ If you’ve ever gotten to work early, you know the perks completely outweigh the negative feeling you may have had about going to work in the first place. Still don’t think I’m serious? Be honest now, could you use a few more hours on the job? I mean to make extra money and to get stuff done. Yes!? OK then here’s how you do it.

 

First you need to decide how early you want to get there. Also work out what you will actually do once you get to work to pass the time as well. Time is money so there is no reason to plan on the fly when you can plan in advance. The Art of Personal Time Management is all about moving step by step.

 

Plans are subject to changing. Its true, all plans you make can and will change in the future for whatever reason. You can have a plan A and B. And if the situation calls for it then whip out your trusty plan C. Whatever you do, you have to do something. So back to the example. You want to get to work early so you can get a running start on all your work. So here’s a way to sketch out your routine: Decide what to wear, pick it out and lay it out. What skills do you use at work? Now, what will boost or balance your skills for work..in advance? Make sure you plan to get enough sleep, maybe you want to get up within enough time to workout and then maybe eat before you start working or eat when you get to work. Most importantly you will absolutely want to leave your home early enough to get through traffic and into your office smoothly and safely.

 

As you visualize the potential of accomplishing this. Take a good guess on how much time it will take you to do it. Remember you can always revert to one of your secondary plans B or C, if you need to. But what exactly is a routine anyway? Let’s see it how it’s defined: Routine: A sequence of actions regularly followed; a fixed program. Other ways to describe what a routine is: regular – ordinary – usual – customary – everyday.

At first, it may seem boring and uneventful to get into a routine. But trust me it’s just the opposite of that. It takes great determination to get to the next level in life. And your routine is one way to revolutionize your efforts to getting things done thus getting to the top of your game faster than ever before!

 

One last tip i want to mention about routines is that your brain is ONLY needed to process why, how to do something and how long it will take to get to get to the next level in your life or project. See once you start your routine and after you allow your brain to do its processing work you can safely ignore it while you’re following your already ‘well thought out’ time management system. Don’t get caught up in the details. Move on swiftly to finishing exactly what you started.

 

The problem that most people run into when they re-think decisions they have already made and entertain the thought to do something different from their original agenda. We all know our brain is just a tool to process information and carry out micro detailed super-duper important bodily processes.

 

The problem with thinking about the already- well- thought- out- plan is stopping what one had started. If you stop a routine you may just fall back to the point you started from. So don’t stop without a damn good reason, in fact don’t stop at all..just pause if you need to for a day or so. Planning is a life-long skill that you will always benefit from! Don’t let your dreams fall through the cracks just because the body or brain doesn’t want to complete or do something we want it to do. You Don’t have to follow your thoughts, EVER.

 

If we want the ultimate success for us, we have to follow through no matter what it takes to get there! Let me ask you one more question…You trust yourself don’t you? I know you said yes, so I’ll say this: If you trust yourself then trust your freakin decisions and respect them to the utmost. Be steadfast! You deserve the best! So give love to yourself by staying focused. If you want it all, you have to give it your all. Bliss and balance to you. What are some struggles you’ve had while trying to stay on your routine, time management game? Please share your thoughts and experiences. Thank you, now go forth and get it done already 🙂

Moon Meditation Testimonials

 

 

1.    I was getting ready to head out and start my day. After careful deliberation of what to eat, and going with the better choice of fruit, nuts, water and green tea as opposed to a pattie from the caribbean store I walked to the light rail.  I left my home feeling and looking my best, asking God to fill me where I feel empty and show me the way.

There was a lady who had a pleasant spirit and we struck up a conversation about her stray cats that she feeds. When I asked her if she was as kind to people as she was to her cats, she said yes and I believed her. She was such a giver, she even gave her drugs away when she was an addict…15yrs in recovery now.

She said I looked like I did really good, kind unique things and asked what I did. I didn’t really know what to say because my life is in a transitional space and so many things in my present seem unsure. I now where I’m going, but the intermediate path has been very blurry.

On the train, out of no where..she told me she saw me making genius sculptures, and I had on these beautiful funky african clothes with long locks doing good things in the world.

This is exactly how I see myself in the future, and a year ago a friend gave me a intuitive reading saying the exact same thing.

So this must be Gods way of telling me I’m on track.

Hey Are You In the Vortex?

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtshW4ECKrQ]

The Vortex of Manifestation

What a great lecture on The Law of Attraction. The first time viewed this video. I was inspired by the way the speaker spoke alone. Not only her speech but she spoke about the same lessons I learned from other teachers in my life. The only difference was the words used to convey the message about our unlimited potential. As the days pass there will be more on this. This video good. Take a look and tell us what do you think of it? Peace, Love and Bliss!

Affirmations Revisited With Joy!

Affirmations are more than a sentence. They are written for the purpose of reaffirming something a person wants to do or remember to do. Affirmations can be used for many things as it relates to the law of attraction they should be used to keep you in line with that which you say you want to attract more of into your life. Always phrase affirmations in terms of what you want rather than what you do not want. The brain cannot evaluate ‘not happy’ without thinking of being unhappy. You get reminded of the words you say whether you adding not or do not want to them. It is important to know what type of intelligence we are dealing with when we speak about the unlimited power within us and the matching stream vibration of unlimited power all around us.

 

Happiness

 

Affirmations can be repeated as many times a day. Pick affirmations that make you feel good. What works for you may not work for another. That is only natural. It is all personal preference. Studies have shown that people who repeat positive words to themselves daily boost their self image to themselves and the world at large. Affirmations are the key to unlocking the motivation that one may lack from minute to minute. It is not enough to say an affirmation if you are not feeling what you are saying. To continue the constant cycle of like attracts like decide what type of energy you want to see more of in your life, then pick your affirmations accordingly. Remember, energy follows thought.

 

 

Here is an exercise to discover what type of affirmations to us: Look at the two affirmations below. Which one will attract more of what you want, and which one will attract more of what you do not want? That is what you have to ask before using an affirmation. OK now for the exercise!

 

 

“People do not listen to me.” or

 

“Everyone enjoys listening to what I have to say.”

 

 

Smiley head happy

 

Next you will see how to turn your list of wants into affirmations. Make sure you are thinking of your personal wants so you can create your own list too.

 

 

Keep the following points in mind when crafting your affirmations

 

1) Phrase your affirmations in the present tense. Write them as if you are enjoying them right now.

 

For example: If your goal is to attract more love, a suitable affirmation might be: ‘I am surrounded with more and more love everyday. I feel love all around me’.

 

 

What are your dreams and desires again? Your affirmations should reflect what you want more of in your life.

 

 

Here are some examples of a goal and the affirmation crafted specifically for affirming …

 

 

1) Goal: abundance in all areas of my life

 

Affirmation: I am abundant in all areas of my life

 

2) Goal: stability

 

Affirmation: I am stable in all areas of my life

 

3) Goal: I want to win

 

Affirmation: I am a winner!

 

4) Goal: I want good health

 

Affirmation: I have ideal health

 

5) Goal: a husband and 3 beautiful children

 

Affirmation: I am enjoying my loving husband and children

 

 

6) Goal: to travel the world

 

Affirmation: I am joyfully traveling the world anytime I choose to

 

 

7) Goal: as a successful business executive

 

Affirmation: I am a successful business executive now

 

 

8) Goal: a healthy relationship with my family

 

Affirmation: My family relationships are happy and healthy

 

 

 

This may seem like a challenging exercise to some, but with practice you will be constructing your personal list affirmations in no time. The key to writing affirmations is to write with intention. Feel the positive vibration of being revolutionary in your life! Taking action is awesome!

 

 

More affirmations:

 

* I am living in the home of my dreams

* I have unlimited resources now

* I am completely healthy

* I am enjoying my ideal relationship

* I have the perfect career now

* I am financially independent

 

 

To attract this and more, write some affirmations and simply allow the universe to respond to your most desired thoughts. Saying affirmations out loud has been known to be preferred by some. However, saying affirmations out loud has nowhere near the same impact as repeatedly hearing the same words inside your mind.

 

 

So where do you place your affirmations now? Place them wherever you will be reminded of them.

 

 

Areas to place your affirmations:

 

 

1. mirrors

2. everywhere you frequently pass

3. car dash board

4. pocket

5. cell phone

6. desk

7. head board

8. wall(s)

9. refrigerator

10.notepad

 

 

Only when you choose have the Resolve and Determination to lead a Happier and more Positive life, will you be Naturally inclined to use a Healing Process of Positive Affirmations. You cannot “force” yourself to be Happy. However, you CAN choose to be Joyful at anytime. When you make this Choice, you can Reinforce and Invigorate the process with living and eating balanced. Healing and Positive Affirmations look good on you. Remember~ Affirm the peace within you, Visualize Luminous Images all day and Feel Sparkling Rays of Strength and Courage within and surrounding your Being! You can do it!

Introduction to the Law of Attraction

Manifesting happens everyday whether we want it to or not, we are always attracting things and people to us. The absolute key to Manifesting without missing a mark, is to do so with confident intention and complete awareness.

There is so much an individual can do to transform their present situation into a one that is more rich with experiences, peaceful and resourceful. For ultimate success we should be mindful of several items from day to day. This may seem like a heavy burden, but trust me it is just a bit more than you may be doing right now.

You will see, this is small measure of work to do. I do promise, this new process to be worth every single moment for you. It is true, Most people don’t think they have the time to add even one more detail to their daily routines. I will show you that changing your thinking is the first step restructuring any situations.

There will be some reprogramming that will need to happen on your part to see results sooner than later. You will see your life reshaping right before your very eyes, as you enter this process with new information.

Making a change has never been as rewarding for us on the inside as well as the outside. The changes we make now have the chance propel us to a constant balance that so many beings seek. The keys to co- creating are in you. Once you experience the direct influence that you have on your world, that is it. You can have the life you knew you were meant to live right here, right now. Full of good health, resources and surrounded with all that you want.

Before we can have abundance in our lives, we have to make some assessments to highlight past patterns but, Also to identify the areas we should do differently. This cannot be overlooked if an individual wants to be proactive in the world. So again the beginning of Building and Maintaining Abundance is is to process our current perception of reality with a fine toothed comb before we can expect to see any lasting improvements in our lives now or in the future. The next document will detail a couple of options to do so.

The 5 Step Process to Attract Abundance

The 5 Step Process to Attract Abundance

Learn the Art of Attracting Abundance using The Law of Attraction. These two laws make a perfect pair! The solution to everything we desire, want and need. Is in using a word that will active everything at once. The word Abundance covers everything!

1. Start by writing down two goals- to start the process. Think carefully of what it is you want to see or see more of in your life. Dream big, do not hold back.

2. Next, Keep the paper on your body as you go through your day, Then visualize having the desired goals already feel it, experience and enjoy the joy in your body of acquiring these two things all day.. do this at least 6 times or more each day..take 3-5 minutes each time to focus on them..see pictures of them… smile as much as possible too..

3. Verbalize these words several times a day

In the car (KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD), in a bathroom mirror, anytime anywhere

4. Say thanks to the source. It does not matter whether you believe a particular spirituality or not, what is important here is to give thanks for what you are about to receive,and while you are expressing gratitude, you are also showing the universe that you no you are not making your blessing happen alone. Moreover, when giving thanks you are acknowledging that something higher and bigger than you is partnering with you to make things happen in your life and that you are a joyful co-creator.

The 5th Step is to Say YES to abundance! Smile inside and out. Be open to receiving the energy that you sent out, only this time- the universe will return the love by completely reflecting the light back to you in a magnitude of ways. Watch.

Top 10 QUICK Ways To Make Money!

 

 

Hey~ I was thinking about the millions of ways to make money on and offline. I have had my share of businesses over the years, starting with when i was first born. I’ve always thought like a business person. Money can be made legally 24/7 all it takes is confidence and some research then ready, set go!

This topic came to mind. As i went through my start up businesses in my head. So here’s a small list of somethings i found from researching around the internet and speaking to some go getters. Remember you are the one who makes the it happen. You can make your business as big or small as you want to. It’s all up to you! What a beautiful thing:-) Choices~ There are more than 10 but i chose a few for you.

 

 

1. Sale stuff on Craigslist~ I’ve done this before. It’s very simple to set up. Check their website. Look at the endless opportunities to sale what you have to others who may need your inventory of excess stuff more than you. You can sell any and everything. This site is also great for giving items away from free too. Just post and people will show up. I know i just used it to sell and give away a load of stuff.

2. Sale to motorists~ We have all seen them standing on the medians in the street selling water, clothes, pies, food, soda, flowers and fruit. This is a way to make some fast money, all you have to do is step outside and do it. While you are in the street, Be safe too.

3. Hold a garage/ yard sale~ This is a popular one. Put a table outside and get to selling. That’s all there is to it. Make it easy and put a sign out weeks ahead of time too..Before the sale make sure you get change too.

5. Sale food out of your house and/or car~ Look up Sam’s club or other bulk buying stores. Plan your meals, think of your clients and schedule it after careful research. However, if you know you can cook. You can start tomorrow using only paper plates and foil lol. I used to do this also. I love cooking and sharing food. There is no limit to what you can do here.

6. Rent out your house~ This is a no brainer. I suggest you heavily interview and make sure you get the right person before you make your final choice. For some, Its easier to hire a company to do the leg work of finding prospects that need a home. They will interview them, bring them to your space, show them what you have to offer (while you’re home of course) these placement companies do not cost too much.

7. Make stuff to sale~ This is a piece i created by hand. It’s a Sunshine bag. Simply make something you enjoy making and show or tell others about it. That’s all there is to it! trust me, someone wants what you have to offer. why wouldn’t they? Exactly, you’re mad talented. No doubting allowed at Bliss Returned :-).

8. Set up and sell at the flea market~ So easy! To set up at least. Making money may take some chit chatting but who can’t do that? Go for it. Call your local flea market and make a trip there as well to check out what others’ are doing. Bring something the public wants and just do it!

Flea market in Madrid.

9. Become a dog walker~ Hey i could not leave this one out. It’s easy for those who love animals, especially if you meditate on a regular basis, are very patient and loving. Someone out there needs what you have to offer. It takes a certain kinda person to do this but hey, you have what it takes. If you want to walk the dogs- go do it:-) place an ad, hang a poster, tell people everywhere.

I hope you enjoyed this. Friday is a day for lighthearted fun. So here is my contribution to that reality. Joyous evening to you and yours. Next i’ll write my thoughts on dating ;-D
