THIS WEEK - FUN ON THE FLOOR

Image
I was selected to attend an event at the London Frame Studio
organised by Total Greek yoghurt and of course I dragged my
American guest along with me to share the experience.
We were happy/nervous pupils being taught how to Rumba, Salsa
and Tango by the pros - Dee Thresher celebrity fitness expert and
Jesús Reyes Ortiz Jr dance instructor from the US.


 O' yes, it was a PROPER work out whilst trying to not look like the odd ones out
...hard work! However, it was fun and very friendly, which helped us shake off
any embarrassment or pressure.

The class was rounded off nicely with a generous spread of tasty food,
refreshments and other great stuff courtesy of Total Greek yoghurt.
If you don't like the gym, this could be an alternative keep fit method for you.




Now I have the hunger for more Rumba dancing so 'Strictly Come' or 'Dancing with' -
here these happy feet come!

More Fun on the Floor

This time it was fun on the 6th floor, where I ate lunch at the London Ken…

THIS WEEK: BEING FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE

Yes I'm my new bank manager! I have become strict and more in control
of my spending habits because I really want to see my hard earned cash
groowww!

I've needed a little encouragement so I have stuck a few notes around the
house to remind me how to maintain a sustainable flow of cash.

Here are 4 tips that I have taken on board.

1 Don't spend today's money, today's money is for the future

This means that I will save a pool of money which may be
the 'rainy day' funds. If I want or need something big, I will use
money that I have already saved up rather than current money
being 'today's money'. It's not a good idea to spend todays money
as you may not have any for something important tomorrow.

2 Not just one income

Have other sources of income it could be buying and selling a
popular product on line to getting rental income for your parking
space.

3 Take the budget challenge

Plan to budget for a specific period like a 6 months or a year
to help with your saving plan. Start with the grocery shopping
and stick to a list so you don't go off on a tangent.

  • Buy in the sale, always check whether you can buy an item
    cheaper elsewhere.
  • Buy what you need - if you're broke! Buy what you'll use if you
    can afford it.
4 PAY off bad debts

This is the obvious one that should be done ASAP . Debts should be
avoided like the plague. Our credit report will be crucial to getting
on in life. You've been warned! I've heard of people not being offered
jobs because they had bad credit status.  Some companies offer loans
and perks with employment but based on a good credit status.


Hope you found my tips helpful...may be print this off and stick
this on your fridge door.
