Cash only living best ways to make good money online

• I survived another week of my job (kind of). I’d finally had enough of processes that didn’t work and had a "come to jesus" discussion with my boss’s boss. I’m surprised I wasn’t fired (or maybe I will go back to work in a best ways to make good money online few days and be off the schedule…Who knows). I am a stickler for processes that are optimized to best ways to make good money online run smoothly and when things don’t work, they need to be fixed ASAP and when people don’t care if things work properly I can get cranky…Seriously, middle-aged, pre-menopausal women are not to be trifled with. On the other hand, I should probably be more tactful when I have something best ways to make good money online to say and maybe try for better timing to discuss best ways to make good money online my concerns ( this is what the tournament looks like every.Single.Day).

• in other work news, I got put into the VIP section for a day best ways to make good money online and holy cow–the amount of money people spend on poker tournaments (this happens to be the biggest poker tournament in the best ways to make good money online world) is staggering! The running list of famous people who came through the best ways to make good money online tournament is pretty impressive and the amount of money people best ways to make good money online pull out–in cash–is amazing (like $50k to $100k for ONE tournament!). I WISH I could pull out hundreds of thousands of best ways to make good money online dollars in cash and slap it down on my mortgage best ways to make good money online company’s payment window, now THAT would be amazing!

• I took our car to the dealership to get the best ways to make good money online oil changed yesterday (surprisingly it is the cheapest place in town to get best ways to make good money online an all synthetic-oil oil change) and was looking around at all of the new cars best ways to make good money online on the lot. I can’t believe that an "average" new car price is nearing $40,000! I paid less than that for my first house! Needless to say, we hope our current car will last for the next best ways to make good money online 20 years or so (at which time we will just uber around during our best ways to make good money online old age).

• I think I got a homeless guy arrested today 🙁 there is a wash behind our house and we get best ways to make good money online the occasional homeless person who will go back there and best ways to make good money online take a nap during the day but when I looked best ways to make good money online out there this morning I saw a guy who looked best ways to make good money online like he was dead or something. His bicycle was a couple hundred of feet down the best ways to make good money online wash from where he was, he looked relatively well dressed and clean cut, he was hanging practically upside down along the side of best ways to make good money online a wall, and he didn’t change position over the course of a couple hours. I yelled at him from our back yard but there best ways to make good money online was no response so I called 311 to have the best ways to make good money online police do a welfare check. The police responded pretty quickly, got him up and talked with him for some time, then the next time I looked they were hauling him best ways to make good money online away in handcuffs! Yikes! Now I feel bad. Unless he was wanted for serious warrants or something in best ways to make good money online which case I wouldn’t feel that bad.

• even though you are debt free, your monthly bills will still keep coming in. Be sure to review your list of bills (utilities, gas, food, insurance, etc) at least annually to figure out if there are ways best ways to make good money online to reduce or eliminate your bills (ie; if you have netflix, you may be able to cut cable TV and just best ways to make good money online pay for internet and use an over-the-air antenna to get local TV stations).

• consider alternative ways to pay your bills. For example, our electric company will either let you pay your regular best ways to make good money online bill each month (it’s low in the winter then super high in the best ways to make good money online summer due to air conditioning) but they also have a plan where they calculate your best ways to make good money online annual electric cost then divide your bill into 12 monthly best ways to make good money online payments so you don’t need to worry about super high summer bills.

• take drastic action to cut your bills. I would love to get rid of our cars and best ways to make good money online just uber around but hubby is firmly against this; doing the math I think it would save us money. I’ve considered getting a tablet and cheap tablet plan (I’m mostly where there is free wifi) then just carrying an off-line cell phone only for calls to 911 in an best ways to make good money online emergency (this would also save money but hubby isn’t too keen on this idea either).

• plan ahead for gifts. Depending on how big your family is, birthday and christmas gifts can turn into a burden. Don’t be afraid to cut down on the gifts you best ways to make good money online give when living on a fixed income or give different best ways to make good money online gifts (like coupons for free babysitting to your relatives if they best ways to make good money online have kids) instead of giving expensive things that you can no longer best ways to make good money online afford.

• always do your research on things you want to buy. I keep two shopping lists–things we really need like grocery items we are almost best ways to make good money online out of and a list of "nice to have" items. The grocery items we buy during our weekly shopping trips best ways to make good money online (hopefully at the 99 cent store where everything is so best ways to make good money online cheap!) and the "nice to have" items stay on the list until I can find the best ways to make good money online item at the goodwill or at online stores with a best ways to make good money online steep discount (I wanted a sling bag from REI which was $40+ dollars but by waiting I found it on a closeout best ways to make good money online sale for $20!).

• seniors have a lot of extra time which is great best ways to make good money online for people who like to travel. There are many ways to travel for free or cheap best ways to make good money online if you have a lot of time. Off-season cruises are much cheaper than high season cruises, elderhostel and servas cater to seniors, and visiting family and friends is often a great way best ways to make good money online to travel cheap (staying with friends or family saves on hotel costs) plus being flexible allows you to find the cheapest airline best ways to make good money online tickets (or you can be adventurous and take an inexpensive flix/megabus/boltbus trip).

• plan to spend more to do the jobs that you best ways to make good money online used to do around the house (hubby is no longer allowed on ladders or on the best ways to make good money online roof so we hire jobs requiring this out these days). Also, while we can do some home jobs, anything with heavy lifting we hire out so we don’t injure our backs (oh to be young when we could do all sorts best ways to make good money online of things without worrying about the long-term health implications!).

• consider moving in with family if this is a viable best ways to make good money online option. In most countries it would be considered weird for elderly best ways to make good money online family members to live by themselves in their own house; usually elders live with their kids and provide free babysitting best ways to make good money online for the grandkids, cook, clean the house, and otherwise help out their kids while living in a best ways to make good money online multi-generational household.

• you may not be able to do as much as best ways to make good money online you used to do physically so consider ways to get best ways to make good money online the things you need done in the most cost efficient best ways to make good money online way possible (instead of winging it if our car breaks down, we have an AAA membership now; many of our elderly relatives have home warranties because they best ways to make good money online can no longer do their own appliance repair; we have a couple good handymen on speed dial if best ways to make good money online we need help with painting or trimming our palm trees, etc).

• if you take a bunch of prescription medication, you should keep an updated list of all medications (name, dosage, frequency) and take this with you each time you visit your best ways to make good money online doctor. Since hubby takes several medications daily we use those little best ways to make good money online medicine holders to organize his daily meds so he doesn’t forget to take them/forget if he already took them (sometimes we both forget and we don’t want him to overdose!).

• if you are on your own, look for ways to protect yourself. If you tend to fall, have a senior alert necklace or something like that; put a message on your cell phone that will tell best ways to make good money online emts what you are allergic to/major medical problems like you are a diabetic/and who to contact in an emergency; my cousin’s son put a camera in her home and she best ways to make good money online waves to him through the camera each morning so he best ways to make good money online knows she is up and about even though he lives best ways to make good money online several thousand miles away.

• give to others. You can’t take it with you so consider giving away things best ways to make good money online to loved ones instead of having them squabble over your best ways to make good money online jewelry and antiques after you die. Spend time with the grandkids (this will benefit them for a lifetime). Help others and allow them to help you (it’s amazing how seniors who live in senior housing communities best ways to make good money online do things to help each other out).
