A Quick Overview........

February 1st, 2009 at 12:59 pm

Well after lurking around here for a while.I've decided to finally get the ball rolling on getting my financal issues in order. I always thought that since I was 29 that it was too late to achieve a dent of any kind in the amount of debt I've amassed so far. But reading the blogs on here has made me realized that it is never too late.
The first and foremost of my goals is to quit smoking, I am a pack a day kinda smoker ugh! This I feel is not only vital to my health, but my financal health as well. Kicking this habit might very well save me hundreds in the months to come , but thousands in years to follow as well.
My second major goal is finally fix my driving license sitiuation, not having one for over 5 years. I've always worked within walking distance of my job site, but now I work 7 miles away. Due to the fact I've neglected this problem for so long ,it will more than likley cost me to the tune of $1500.00 to repair.
My goal of 15 NSD is very feasible since I'am single and there is a kitchen at my job where i can store and cook my lunches if need be.Plus by planning my meals and brown bragging, I hope not only to save money but lose weight in the process.
I will not be able to save much until March, but once it comes I will hit the ground runnning.After reading everyones blogs on here, I now know it can be done!.

    I was thinking cold turkey. Mainly beacuse my grandfather just had heart surgery mainly due to complications due to smoking. Every major arterty in his heart was clogged. Frown
