Tips to Save for Your Starter Home

by , in



Tips to Save for Your Starter Home
by Alek Sabin

Making the jump from home renter to home buyer is a major step, but with a few lifestyle changes, saving up enough for a down payment on a home can come faster than you think. The key thing to remember when saving up for a home is that the lifestyle changes you make will only be temporary, and they will prove well worth your time and effort when it comes time to finally make that down payment. Here is a look at some simple ways that you can save for your starter home…


Cut Down on Your Rent

If you’re saving up to buy your first home, then rent is most likely your primary expense at the moment. It makes sense, then, to target rent first. If you’re a good tenant, you might be able to negotiate with your current landlord about paying slightly less for your rent every month. When this isn’t an option, be sure to take advantage of any referral specials that your landlord might have going on.

Beyond this, even if your living accommodations are well within your budget, you may want to consider temporarily relocating to something even more affordable, or taking in a renter; you’ll see the savings come much faster this way. The key thing to remember here is this: keeping your housing expenses below the recommended 33% mark every month might be working well for you now, but getting those expenses down to, say, 20% is what will really help you bring in that down payment money within the span of just a few years.

Create a Targeted Savings Account

Your efforts in saving up for a new home will go much further if you channel a portion of your earnings into a savings account designated for down payment savings. Opening up a special account for this purpose only will make your goal much more focused, and you’ll be much less likely to dip into savings on a whim. Moreover, this can serve as a place for you to set aside all unexpected sources of income, including tax returns, bonus checks, birthday money, garage sale earnings, etc.

Find Other Sources of Income

Consider putting in extra hours at your current job if you happen to get paid for overtime, and when that isn’t an option, consider taking up an extra part-time job. You could even start a small business on the side. Just be sure to channel all of this extra income into your down payment savings. It may offer some sacrifice in the short term, but making your goal of owning a home a reality will make your efforts well worth it.

Look for Items to Sell

You’d be surprised at what higher priced items you own but do not use frequently enough to justify keeping. Do you live near public transportation but still use your new car to commute to work every day? Consider selling your car, or trading it in for something cheaper to recuperate the difference. Do you want more and more TV on your computer these days? Maybe it’s time to sell your TV. From electronics to high-end kitchen appliances, you’re sure to find something that can add a significant chunk to your savings fund.

Cut Unnecessary Expenses

If you take a good, hard look at what you’re spending money on every month, you’ll likely find expenses that it no longer makes sense for you to keep up with now that you’re saving. Examples of such expenses include clothing, specialty coffee, gym memberships, online media streaming subscriptions, gas, and dining out often. You can also find creative ways to get lower energy costs by using smart thermostats, or even trying to improve the insulation in your home.

Ask for Lower Interest Rates

If you are consistent on your credit card payments, ask your credit card company for a lower rate. If you have had a credit card for a long time, companies pay off loyalty. Do your homework, learn what other competitors are offering so that you can negotiate with knowledge. Just call and ask. Be polite, but persistent. Make sure to pay off your credit cards on time to avoid paying excessive amounts of interest.

Have a Budget

If you do not already have a budget, make one. If you have one but you are not keeping it, be more consistent. Do not buy things that you have not accounted for in your budget. Be aware of what you are spending and cut back as much as possible (especially daily soda or coffee runs). Start using cash if you can. It will give you a visual of how much you have left and keep you from spending too much.

Find Homes You Can Get at a Deal

If you are willing to think outside the box, there are a lot of ways that you can get a starter home for a significantly lower cost. A major aspect of this is to look for homes that are unfinished, but good enough for you to start living in. A home with an unfinished basement provides a great opportunity for you and your family to move in, if the upstairs will fit you, and then you can finish the basement as your family continues to grow. Another thing to do is try to look past the curb appeal of a home. For example, specific colors on certain parts of a home will increase its value, but you can buy a home with less attractive colors and just repaint it later.

Food Stores: The First Line of Survival

by , in

Natural calamities like hurricanes, earthquakes, and snowstorms are but a few of the major disasters that can most certainly cut anyone's access to
essential necessities, particularly food. In the most trying times during and after an onslaught of natural or man-made calamities, the most important
thing to have may not be your new pair of jeans or your plasma television set; but rather your stash of food at home. Food, along with water and first
aid materials, is a fundamental prerequisite for any chance of survival during emergencies.

By taking the necessary steps to store food before any disaster strikes your area, you and your family will dramatically increase your odds of making it
through. Even if you are living in a modern city where most people probably think that strong winds and tremors, among other things, can hardly affect
your way of life, storing an emergency food supply may still be a good thing to consider. One can never tell what will happen when disasters strike, so
there can be no room for complacency even in rare places where food supply
may not likely be disrupted by a calamity.
The basic considerations in storing food in preparation for emergencies include the nutritive contents and the longevity of the type of food. It is
always desirable to store food that will last for an extended period of time without causing food poisoning. The most common food supply that is
convenient for emergencies come in the form of canned goods, vacuum packed goodies and handy dry mixes.


Nevertheless, perishable food stored in your refrigerator is a vital addition to your emergency food supply. They may have shorter shelf life, but steps
should be taken to extend their usefulness and should never be squandered carelessly. Fresh leafy vegetables, fruits, meat and poultry can last for a few
weeks even in the absence of a working refrigerator in case electricity has been cut off.

As for meat, fish and poultry, if these are frozen hard, they may last for a week or two if they are kept frozen for as long as possible. At the first sign
of electrical blackout in your area, you must put newspaper and other materials in your fridge as additional insulation to prevent ice crystals
surrounding your frozen food from melting quickly; thereby, lengthening the frozen state and the life of your meat, fish, and poultry. If all these steps
fail, the next best option is to cook and consume your frozen food immediately.

Fresh fruits and vegetables can last for days as long as flies and other parasites are kept at bay. Keep these foods covered and dry. If there is still ample time to prepare before a calamity strikes, pickling fruits and vegetables may be a good idea; pickled or dried fruits and vegetables will provide you with all the nutritional goodness of vegetables and fruits even during emergencies.

As you start to make your food cache in preparation for emergencies, you should also take into consideration the tastes and food preferences of each
member of your family. As much as possible, your emergency food supply should consist of food that is familiar to you and your loved ones. Your
emergency food stash does not have to be bland and displeasing, and worse, unwholesome.

A good list of food to store for emergencies includes dried fruits, meat and fish. Canned meals, soup mixes, cereals, and noodles can provide
substantial sources of energy. Do not forget high-energy chocolate bars, candies, crackers and chips to keep the kids happy. And while you are
building your food store, include instant coffee, juices, milk (you can purchase milk in boxes that needs no refrigeration until open), sugar and even tea; your body will need liquids as much as solid nutrients so do not forget potable water and food for your pets too.

As much as possible you should try to store food rich in energy; like food laden with carbohydrates and proteins. During emergencies, your muscles
will need all the fuel they can get to function properly and efficiently. Also, try to include comfort foods in your food store; this will be good for children
and adults as well. In the end, food will not only benefit your body but your determination to survive as well; as food will help decrease stress and raise
the hope of survival for you and your family.

I hope you had a great weekend and your week will be the best!
I had a busier weekend than originally planned with a new dog in the house adopted from the Pet Refuge.
Her name is Marie. She was at the Furry Friends Refuge I believe about a year. Best behaved girl and so sweet. She's adjusting to her new home and loves walking and going outside!

 

I had planned to share more on starting your planting but ran out of time and energy. I look forward to sharing more this week along with some great guest posts from Aurora McCausland as well.
Look forward to sharing more soon. In the meantime, make this a simply happy and great Monday!

The Basics Man, The Basics!

by , in

I would like to share an excerpt from my e-book, The Basic Survival Guide I'm working on.
It's very important to Create a Disaster Plan for Your Family/Team.
If you have a family it's very important to have a plan for the entire family. If you don't have a family yet, teaming up with trusted friends is valuable.

What is a Disaster Plan and why each family/team should have one
A disaster is a fact of life that no one can evade 100 percent. Calamities strike when you least expect them and they take lives by the hundreds
(sometimes thousands). Although disasters can be anywhere at any given time, still, you can do something to lessen its catastrophic effects. 

Each family (or even individuals) should be organized and ready when the unexpected decides to show up.
Your family is the best team during disasters. 

First, you all know your strengths and weaknesses and you could bank on each family member’s
strength for the safety of your family. A family disaster plan is a MUST for every family any place in the world.
If you don’t have family perhaps you can team up with friends and others of like mind to create a Disaster Plan, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and have your plan in place.

Primarily, your family/team should be able to point out specific disasters that are common in your area. It would be silly to prepare against tornadoes

when they do not, or have never even occurred your area, in the first place.
As a family/team, you should know what disasters usually strike in your community. Although it’s best to plan for any type of disaster, on top of the
disaster plan should be your plan when the most common disaster strikes.
As a family/team, you should be able to agree on what to do and whose role is what when the calamity happens. Each should have an equal task in
countering the catastrophe. A disaster or calamity is not the time for strife and not carrying one’s load.
Again, being prepared way ahead of the disaster is imperative. It is ridiculous to start talking in panic just when the family is coming face to face
with, say, a flood. Bear in mind the necessities that could be cut off when calamities happen: no telephone lines (or worse, no cell phone signals), no
electricity, or no water. Your plan should center on establishing the most important part of survival—food and asking for assistance if this is an option.
Note: If you go into panic you will make mistakes. And when disaster strikes it’s not the time for panic.
You will be shocked how many people are prone to panic and the incidents of those who have even lost their lives due to panic.
If you and your family/team are at your home during the disaster, it is due to martial law, terrorism or other situations not related to natural disasters
and want to go to a bug out location (being a place you and your
family/team have worked on as a safe place to go). Before you go to your
location, attempt to get all the information you can gather. Ask who, what,where, when, how long, etc. If phone, cell phone, television, radio and
computer are down, you may have to be creative to get this information.
You want to know who is in control and get the best understanding of the situation around you as possible. It depends on situation around you where
you can go to get this information. If television, social media, cell phone, etc is available use them to find out information and still act carefully but
informed. Ask neighbors if you think it’s safe to do so. Even if you don’t find all the information you’d like you may get enough to help you make wise
decisions about your situation and what actions to take or not take.
At the very least, quietly watch and observe, let panic go and make wise decisions. If you have to postpone going for an hour, day week—do so! You
need to choose carefully your best time to leave. Ideally, it would be good to leave before the disaster if at all possible.
Hopefully if you are not able to leave and must postpone,you have prepared with a supply of water and food supplies in case of such a
situation.
Of course in a tornado, earthquake, flooding, and other natural disasters the type of danger is different than martial law, terrorism or a breakdown of law & order around you. Unless it should happen simultaneously or shortly after. There could be natural disasters that happen simultaneously.

I say the above to get you to think really out of the box!
If you’re at home and are not able to go out—don’t panic. Although if the situation warrants, help can take time to arrive, most probably it will, and
the best thing to do is to wait it out and have ample food while waiting for help. If this situation warrants no help be prepared for it.
Here is a simple checklist that is necessary for your family’s or team’s disaster plan (but you could add more according to your family’s/team’s
needs):
1. Know what type of natural disasters plague your community and base your disaster plan on that. Pay attention to the ‘signs of the times’ around
you. What’s going on locally, politically, in U.S. and abroad. Pay attention to the Terrorism alerts, and medical epidemics, just to name a few. In other
words pay attention to the world around. Don’t panic or be fearful just be wise and act accordingly.

2. Know if your community has a warning system. If yes, can you recognize it at any given minute?

3. Think of the people who cannot fend for themselves and who should take care of them during calamities (the elderly, disabled individuals, even
pets).

4. Set a place where your entire family/team could meet in case your home caves in or is destroyed by a disaster. Have a plan A and plan B.

5. Have escape routes. Do not limit it to just one. Have at least two.

6. Post the emergency numbers where a flood cannot reach it and where it is safe from fire. It should be in a conspicuous area and everybody in the family/team should know where it is.

7. Set up a time for the entire family/team to practice the disaster plan at least once a month or more often so that everyone would constantly be
reminded of what they are tasked to do and how to be alert in their roles.

8. More than being physically and mentally prepared is to be prepared with necessities (food and some toiletries). Arrange a kit where there is
ample food and water for everyone (at least 72 hours would be good), soap and also some spare batteries. Always include a flashlight in your disaster
kit.

9. As a family, you could enroll in classes that specifically deal and discuss how to prepare your family against any disasters. A CPR or first aid
class would be a necessity.

10. The last one on this list is very important: Tell your children what to expect during calamities and how not to panic. Let them know the warning
signs of a potential disaster and how to contact you in case you do get separated.

Aside from all these necessary things to prepare, it is also better if you constantly keep a prayer in your heart that you and your family be kept safe
from any harm during catastrophic moments.

Spring Clean Your Mental Health

by , in

Guest Post by Aurora Mccausland

Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes that time of year that inspires us to declutter our homes, spruce up our yards, and sweep up those dust bunnies that have been collecting for a little too long. Although it’s always important to tidy up our living spaces, it may be the perfect time to consider cleaning out our mental and emotional spaces as well.

Just like that garage filled with items you’ve either forgotten about or just never use, our thoughts and feelings need a little decluttering too. It feels good to walk into an organized home, or to enjoy a freshly cleaned floor, a mental spring cleaning can give you that same enjoyment. A boost to your psyche, a sense of accomplishment, and a giant weight off of your shoulders. Here’s a spring cleaning checklist to get you started in tidying up your mental and emotional spaces!

1. Take Time for Yourself
Start off by giving yourself some more alone time. Take time to make an internal inventory of your mind and spirit. Sometimes what clutters up our minds are the unnecessary ways we spend the precious little time we have to ourselves. Find an external act that will help promote self-reflection, like yoga or meditation, and get back in tune with the inner you. Plan out a vacation from technology. So much of our time is spent looking at screens. Try and spend some time visualizing how you want to feel in your life and amongst those around you.


2. Write More
The pen is mightier than the sword. Instead of attacking our character, and self-worth outwardly, let’s choose to be kinder to ourselves. Identifying our emotions and writing out our thoughts can help clear out those emotional spaces. We can make these emotions feel far more manageable.

You might not even realize just how much emotional baggage you’ve accumulated over time until you’ve starting writing everything down. Next time you’re feeling burdened, write it down on paper. Give yourself prompts. Ask yourself questions about how you’re feeling, why you’re feeling it, and how you’d like to feel in the future.

3. Move Your Body
You don’t need to suddenly decide to hit the gym everyday, or even to aquire an at-home gym to easily enjoy the physical and mental benefits of movement. Simply getting up and moving around is an excellent way to release stress, boost your energy, and improve your health overall.

Try to make an effort to get your body moving a few times a week. Most importantly, find activities that you enjoy! It’ll make it easier to find time for them. Whether it’s hiking, swimming, a walk around the neighborhood, or lifting weights. Strengthening your body can strengthen your mind, and moving your body can help you think.

4. Take Things Slowly
If you’re like most people, from the moment your alarm rings in the morning you’re rushing out the door. You might be forgetting little things, feeling tired at work, or entirely overwhelmed by the small stuff. It’s likely that you’re just not giving yourself the breathers you need in life. In those moments you probably feel more frantic than free.

Remind yourself that life is lived a day at a time. Whenever it feels as though life is getting the better of you, remember to take care of yourself and your mental state. No more suppressing your feelings because there’s no time for them. The time you make for your mental health is just as important as the time you make for the external world.

5. Forgive Yourself and Your Faults
It’s often easier to overlook the faults of others, but not the ones in ourselves. Over times, we tend to collect all of our negative self-reflections and evaluations. The, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m bad at relationships”, or the “I’ll never be happy”. This often comes with dwelling heavily on our past mistakes, and it clutters the present. These self-critical thoughts, feelings, and emotions are normal, but you shouldn’t let them trap you.

An Emergency to be Prepared For

by , in
As I'm been thinking on Emergency Preparedness one type of emergency came to mind. One that can be overlooked as an emergency to be prepared for-Fire! Heaven forbid we'd ever have to deal with this!
A fire that takes place creates an emergency and is one to be prepared for. Here's a few areas to be prepared.
You can be prepared by purchasing high quality smoke detectors and check their batteries often. The smoke detectors need to be placed in strategic places throughout your home and loud enough to be heard.
There are also smoke detectors available for those who are deaf that use strobe lights as well as those with lower decibels for the elderly who may not hear high pitch sounds as they age.
Also having a plan in place if there should be a fire that let's everyone know where to meet upon evacuation. More ways to prepare coming later!

Good evening. How's your day been? Have you considered preserving your eggs but haven't known how! Don't let the title deceive you. You can preserve your eggs for anytime of the year and be ready for fresh eggs in the winter as well.
In this very informative video Caroline shares how to preserve your eggs for possibly up to 8 months.
P.S. store bought eggs are washed. If you don't have your own chickens considering purchasing from a farmer and be sure they don't wash the eggs. It washes off what needs to be on the shell. Watch and learn more.
