Gather Your Money Little by Little!

Proverbs 13:11 (New International Version)

Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.



Provers 21:5 (The Message)

Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind.



What are you doing today to make your money grow? What are you doing today to save your money? You might say "well, what can I do to make my money grow, how can I save money?" My answer is this "gather your money little by little!!"



If God tells us that "careful planning puts us ahead in the long run", I believe Him! If you are like most, saving money is the last thing on your mind, but it shouldn't be. Situations happen everyday that need our attention, and often times need our money; you get a flat tire, you have an unexpected bill to pay, or your child needs something. What do you do if you don't have a surplus, how do you handle those situations?



For those of you who don't know where to begin as it relates to saving money, let me throw a couple of different scenarios at you:




  1. Try packing your lunch everyday for 1 week and put the money you would have used into a jar, and at the end of the week see how much money you saved. Most people spend about $6 a day on lunch, which is a saving of $30 a week, just for packing your lunch. If you feel comfortable doing it after a week, try doing it for one whole year, and see how you save $1,560 almost effortlessly.

  2. But what if you say "Kellee, I'm already doing that, I pack my lunch everyday, how else can I save money?" My answer would be this: you can have your payroll company deduct $25 out of your paycheck every week, or $50 every two weeks, and have that money go directly into a saving account. Get a saving account without an ATM card, so you don't have easy access to your savings. And don't touch your savings unless a real emergency occurs. In doing that, you will see how your finances grow by allowing it to gather little by little. Which will in turn put you ahead in the long run!

I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!


Have a Most Prosperous Day!!

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
