Retirement Investing and Maintaining a Budget

Retirement Investing and Maintaining a Budget

The first step to avoid financial debt within retirement <a rel=”nofollow” onclick=”javascript:_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’, ‘/outgoing/article_exit_link’]);” href=””> investing </a> is to

create and maintain a budget. It’s easy, simple and can be fun.


Take an inventory of expenses with a list. You must include everything

in order to get an accurate accounting for your retirement investing.

Don’t forget the simplest of expenses. I.E., purchasing of lottery tickets, gas for the lawnmower, incidentals, etc. A great way is to

keep a log and receipts for everything for a least one month.


Next, calculate income. Your main income, side income, investments,

etc.  Does your income cover your expenses. It should with a surplus.

You may need to add some new expenses in your retirement investing.

Remember, you are investing in your retirement by calculating the cost of everything. Keep in mind that an executed budget will allow you to not only meet your expenses, it will also enable you to pay back

outstanding debt, meet monthly expenses and place money into your

savings or retirement investing.


Reduce your spending habits. You will see this by your log & receipts.

This may seem a little extravagant but you will soon see the importance to it.  Pay cash for everything you can and not use a charge card. If you use a debit card, keep accurate records to record the purchase in your checkbook. You may have to start to clip coupons. Something you may never thought of before. If you don’t need your home phone for a security system, get rid of it and only keep your cell phones. Only use them with plans that have anytime minutes, texts and the like. Keep in mind that these anytime minutes plans only apply to cell phone to cell phone. So if you call a lot of land lines ( who knows why you would) this won’t work for you. If you are still working, brown bag it. Can you refinance your mortgage or are you ready to sell your <a rel=”nofollow” onclick=”javascript:_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’, ‘/outgoing/article_exit_link’]);” href=””> real estate </a> and downsize? Gee, another savings for you.


Maybe you can bundle your insurances. Home, auto, life, health. Check with your agent.


How can you save any monies these days?  Well, first you have to put yourself first on your list of monthly expenses. Before you stroke any checks or online bill pay, you must set a certain amount for your savings account. An additional way to save is to put all your change at the end of the day in a jar. At the end of the month you will have accumulated more than you think. When you’re at the store and it’s time to pay, pay with bills and don’t use any change in your pocket.

You may feel discouraged at first. However a little tweaking may have  to take place every now and then. 


Warning….plastic can be hazardous to your financial <a rel=”nofollow” onclick=”javascript:_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’, ‘/outgoing/article_exit_link’]);” href=””> health</a> . You know what plastic I mean. Your credit cards. If you must, cut them up or keep one in a safe place ( not your wallet) for emergencies only.  Another way to help save is how you use products. You don’t have to pay more for a product that will give you the same results. Don’t be a label  or brand name shopper.


All of these tips will certainly help you in your retirement investing  and planning.


Adjust your attitude and your lifestyle. You will benefit.

Ideas to Choose the Suitable SEO Packages

Ideas to Choose the Suitable SEO Packages

Choosing the most suitable SEO packages can be quite a task considering the huge number of companies offering different packages at different rates. Your choice of a package should not depend on the variety offered or on the packages available.

Most people are in the habit of choosing or looking for cheap SEO packages. While these may look good in the interim, chances are that a cheap package will not get you some decent results as search engine optimization can be quite expensive. To choose the most relevant search engine optimization plan, here are a few things to do:

Consider Your Budget

While you might desire a bigger, better package, how much do you have to invest in optimizing your website for higher search engine rankings. Truth be told, it costs a lot to successfully get your website ranking highly on the search engines. Most search engine optimization companies will often have different and varying SEO packages and the cost of each and every one of them differs.

Your Website Needs

Sometimes, a website has to be completely redesigned or partially redesigned of there is need for it. Factors like link structure out to be considered when considering choosing an SEO package. For example, a website that has good graphic but is lacking in proper linking structure is less likely to rank highly in the search engines while one without designs but proper site-wide link structure is more likely to get ranked highly. A professional SEO company will ensure that both -in this case graphics and proper linking- are merged to create the perfect, search engine loving website.

Methods, Procedures and Tools

Seo packages cost differently as the methods used differ. For instance, one package might include 20 one way links while another will contain 50. One package may boasts of using 15 social media sites while another may include 50. These all influence the rankings of a website.

However, the most important thing is to look for that which suits your current needs, budget and intention. If you can’t afford an expensive one, go for a cheaper SEO package. As you make more money, you can upgrade.

Shopping On A Budget

Shopping On A Budget

Most of us struggle to find clothing for girls that don’t make your favorite five-year-old look like a midget Britney Spears. There are plenty of stores to find age appropriate items like Old Navy, Children’s Place, and the Gap. These stores offer great pieces, for reasonable prices. Always buy items like pants and jackets one size up, so that it can last into the beginning of the following year.

H&M has some of cutest clothing for girls at even cheaper prices than the GAP. Avoid department stores that tend to price children‚s clothing at the same price point as adults. There is no justification for a 4T Ralph Lauren skirt to cost that same as an adult skirt. The one exception is at Macys, which has great deals on children’s clothing during their major sale events.

The best store to bargain shop for girls is at Target. The options are limitless and the clothes are well constructed with most items in the – range. Plus shopping at target is very acceptable (unlike K-MART), so you can save money without worry about the “cool” factor.

It seems like the designers for boys clothing are hell-bent on making them look like little action heroes. Bargain shopping for these tykes is an art form that few know how to do. Target has great stuff for little guys, with Children’s Place giving the most for your bucks. However, SEARS is also a great place to find cute little items from designers like Sean John and Levi, for very reasonable prices.

Although Old Navy is great place for basics like Cargo pants, the really cool stuff is at GAP. Bright colored lumberjack jackets and knit caps will keep your little guy looking stylish. Another good place is Marshall’s and T.J. Maxx. Usually both these stores have nice suits from designers like Polo Ralph Lauren for such a bargain that you could also pick them up a little toy to make up for forcing them to go shopping.

Further signs of a shift in the market include both Morrisons and Tesco selling energy efficient lightbulbs at low prices, while Asda, the Co-op and Somerfield greatly increased the proportion of in-season vegetables produced in the UK.

But the survey, carried out by the independent group Sustain, says no retailer has yet risen to the challenge of being a truly green business, with even the top performers failing to implement basic measures. No supermarket got top marks for the amount of British in-season produce on sale, while the report noted the “wildly varying performance” in terms of unnecessary packaging and plastic bags.

Larry Whitty, chair of the NCC, said: “The food we eat is responsible for one-third of our impact on climate change. NCC’s research has spotted important signs of progress right across the market … but much remains to be done if supermarkets are to become truly green grocers.”

Meanwhile, separate research being published today by the Climate Group reveals poor consumer awareness of companies taking the lead on climate change. The research shows that two-thirds of people were unable to name any brands that are taking a lead, but said 80% of consumers were making some effort to be green.

1 green onion, chopped

3 tbsp Italian salad dressing

1 tbsp vinegar

1 tsp chopped fresh basil OR 1/4 tsp dried basil

Reduce Your Company?s Carbon Footprint and Save Money

Reduce Your Company?s Carbon Footprint and Save Money

The environmental cost of commerce has become an important part of business in America and the world as we all become increasingly aware and concerned about the impact of our actions on climate change and our environment.  Many businesses are creating sustainability plans, training environmental impact officers and implementing company wide recycling and reduction programs.

For many small and medium sized businesses, the option of hiring a college degreed sustainability officer and staff is really not in the budget. There are however new online training programs which cater to small and medium sized businesses such as But short of taking a course and becoming an expert, what can your business do to be environmentally responsible and reduce your carbon footprint…all while saving money.

Here are 5 ways to reduce your carbon footprint and save some money.

(1) Recycle Toner and Ink Jet Cartridges. These things, which always run out at the most inopportune time, cost way too much and, contrary to what the big companies than manufacture them proclaim with their “send it in recycling programs” – end up in the landfill, usually in the poorest areas of the world.  The technology and quality of recycled toner and ink jet cartridges in many cases surpasses the original equipment manufacturers…and you get to support a local business like yours when you patronize them.   And don’t forget to set your printers to “draft” mode when you’re not printing for official communications…it’ll save you money and toner/ink.

(2) Use Less and Buy Recycled Paper. Back in the early 90’s when email was gaining popularity we all proclaimed that it was the beginning of the paperless office.  But the paper companies weren’t scared. Paper sales went through the roof because now we had more information to print out, copy and share with each other. Now there are a variety of document sharing services, including free ones like Google Docs, while allow immediate sharing of and collaboration of documents without having to print out 5 copies for the group to mark up.  It saves money, time and is much more efficient.

Furthermore, as the quality of recycled content paper has gone up to photo quality level and the cost has gone down to below the cost of “new” paper, it clearly makes no sense not to include the procurement of recycled printer and copier paper in your corporate sustainability plan.

(3) Go Paperless with your invoices. PayPal and Google Checkout both have electronic invoicing capabilities for those of you who process payments via credit card, and for many companies, their PayPal and Google Checkout accounts are tied directly to their corporate checking accounts for seemless, and transaction fee free payment processing.  They both offer a variety of export formats and integrate with popular accounting packages like QuickBooks and Microsoft Accounting.  

No more 3 copy carbon based invoices, no gas guzzling postmen delivering the mail and no more licking envelopes!

(4) Recycle Everything. Soda cans, newspapers, used equipment, furniture and materials (if you’re manufacturing things) all carry a price.  Aluminum cans trade for around $ .80 a pound (32 12 ounce cans = 1 pound) – so figure you can sell them to a local recycler for a bit better than half of that.  Doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you have an office full of Red Bull crazed employees or “Diet Coke Fiends” it can actually add up relatively quickly.   

List your used equipment on Craigslist or Google for a local company that will pick up and “recycle” your used equipment – or better yet, donate it to a local charity and take the tax deduction.  Goodwill and the Salvation Army will send out a truck to pick up larger items and most likely make weekly or monthly trips through your area.

(5) Offset Your Carbon Footprint with Carbon Credits

While Reducing, Reusing and Recycling is key in preventing climate change, offsetting your carbon emissions is the next great step in the preservation of our environment for generations to come. The Carbon Calculator Math is below, or you could use a Carbon Footprint Calculator at

To offset your carbon emissions simply means to neutralize your part in the polluting of our environment. In technical terms, a carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide emissions.

Certified Projects are developed such as a reforestation project that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced will result in the creation of one certified carbon offset (

Since carbon dioxide emissions are the principal cause of climate change, purchasing carbon offsets is key to promoting a greener environment.

When you offset your personal carbon emissions, you are doing your much-needed part in helping to put an end to global warming and climate change. In addition to making the world a better place, you just might also score a few popularity points with your friends and family.

Going Green at work doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to build a new building out of used tires, or procure all new energy saving computer and office equipment.  It is possible to work towards carbon neutrality without breaking the bank, and then supplement your efforts with cost-effective carbon credits.

Promotional Water Bottles – Advertising That Goes Everywhere

Promotional Water Bottles – Advertising That Goes Everywhere

If you want your business to be noticed but do not have the budget for a big time advertising campaign, then promotional items are one of the best ways to get your business noticed, or to introduce a new product, promote a new service, motivate your employees and thank your customers. From pens to mugs, pewter items and umbrellas, notepads, t-shirts and water bottles–it is all used as marketing and promotional reasons for a company. Promotional water bottles have great advantages that make them suitable for creating hype and buzz on your products and business.

One of the most common reasons for why custom water bottles are the most sought after promotional items is because it is oh-so affordable and won’t break a company’s budget. They are affordable and this is one important criteria you have to look into if you are looking to build buzz. While there are higher priced ones out there, you should go for cheaper types that really stretch your budget to the maximum since you want to make an impact at a very small price.

From polycarbonate water bottles to plastic and aluminum, these bottles cost so much little than the marketing and promotional outreach it does. If your intent is to get your logo seen everywhere, then you want a low-priced and very visible promotional item. But promotional water bottles offer more than economy. These items are some of the things that people use on a daily basis and are carried along anywhere or kept in their office table, in cars, in bicycle bottle holders and almost everywhere else people need a drink, when they cycle, or when they go jogging, when walking, when they go to the park or the beach or just about anywhere. That means that wherever the person goes, your logo or message will travel with them, and be seen everywhere they take your promotional sports bottles.

With the amount of space on the bottle, you can not only show your logo but your promotional message, company contact details and even shop location. In fact, depending on the style of custom water bottles that you choose, you can print on the entire bottle surface. Choosing the right bottle for your campaign is essential. First of all, look for convenient features in the bottle. The more practical and useful the features, the more it will be used–keep that in mind. Think of things like, does the bottle have a carabiner hook and can it fit properly to a hand?

After you’ve chosen your features, next comes the style with which you want your personalized water bottles to be in. This style has to be versatile to fit from the bicycle bottle clips, to cup holders in the car. The more versatile, the better the chances of your bottle being carried everywhere. Of course, with style comes unique designs. Pick bright designs and those that are easily identifiable with your logo. If you logo has yellow, pick a color in a different hue of yellow and it should be a contrast so that you logo is outstanding.

How to Organize Your Kitchen on a Budget

How to Organize Your Kitchen on a Budget

There are many things that you already have in your home that you can use to organize your kitchen. All it takes is a little creativity and imagination.

Old food containers
Yogurt containers are especially helpful for storing small things like corn holders, twist ties, toothpicks, rubber bands, paper clips and push pins. Take a black marker and write down on the lid of the container what is inside. That way you do not have to open it to figure out what you put in the container.

Larger plastic containers from things like margarine work great for helping you organize sauce packets or spice packets. When you use this to organize your kitchen, make sure to store the same kind of packets together. If you have several containers with different types of packets, labeling the side of the container works great.

Glass jars from spaghetti sauce, jelly, olives, pickles or mayonnaise work great for storing items as well. The great part about glass jars is that you can see what is inside so there is no need to bother with labeling them.

Using cardboard as drawer dividers
I have used this one myself before and it works great. Measure the drawer to make sure that you cut the cardboard the right size and then just cut a sturdy piece of cardboard to fit in the drawer. In order to make it look better, wrap each divider in some standard brown craft paper. This is a great way to organize your kitchen drawers and it does not cost a cent.

Shoe boxes
Shoe boxes are my favorite organizing tool. My preference is to use the basic plastic shoe boxes that you can find very inexpensively in stores but you can use traditional cardboard shoe boxes just as easily. I like the plastic shoe boxes because you can easily see the contents inside and often then do not have to label anything. If you decide to use the traditional cardboard shoe boxes, it makes it easier (and makes it look nicer) if you cover them in brown craft paper and label the outside.

When I organize my kitchen, I use shoe boxes for organizing oatmeal packets, granola bars, pastas and a whole lot more. They keep your cupboards neat and are easily stackable so you can maximize the use of your space.

So look around your home and see what else you have in your home that you can use to organize your kitchen. All it takes is a little creativity. For more kitchen organization solutions, go to
