Budget Bootcamp sounds strict but I’m not one to sugarcoat anything when it comes to a financial crisis.

The most compelling evidence of spending too much money will show up in the actual budget numbers. If you’ve been affected financially by the Covid-19 pandemic making changes has to happen. Budget Bootcamp is not just about spending less it’s changing the way you think about your financial safety net. During Covid-19, I’ve been fortunate to work from home and continue to earn my salary.

Sell, donate, trash, or recycle. I know a lot of people get stuck on deciding where to donate. I’m fine with going to any donation center, but I know some of you want to go somewhere local.

Time and time again, you have told me that you just need a clean, simple, and effective method for keeping track of all of life’s details: from important family info and home improvements to maintenance schedules, pet care, favorite family meals and so much more.
