Our Extreme Budget ,Life with Cash


share with you today Friday on how you
can have a financial freedom life it takes just a few big steps and turn it
will turn into baby steps and you won’t believe the difference that it makes come back everyone I’m going to share
with you today about financial freedom and how you can gain it and how you can
achieve it it’s very simple but it can be profound in your life financial
freedom means about getting out of debt as much as you possibly can
so what I do is we were in debt the first thing we did is we took our
smallest debt that we had and we worked on paying that off so the smallest debt
that you had let’s say you had a debt a car loan for $3,000 put all of your
money towards that and pay off that car loan then what money you use to pay off
your car loan you in turn put that into a credit card debt debt is something
that is like a noose around your neck even the Bible talks about having debt
and how debt can be such a hard part of your life but what else can you do
let’s get finding out well everyone the first steps in financial freedom are
reducing your debt and then it’s so simple from there so it is recycle reuse
and repurpose so if you’re not going to be so if you’re going to be paying off
your debt that means you’re gonna have to have money and in order to have money
that means you have to save your penny a penny saved is a penny earned and so how
do you save your pennies even in 2019 pennies do add up so many times people
say oh it’s $5 here and it’s $2 there it does make a huge difference so I’m going
to share with you step 1 pay off your debts step 2 repurpose you’re seeing me
in my canning garage I have not been out of here a whole lot filming simply
because we’ve had a extremely hot summer but in the fall you’re gonna see me out
here a whole lot more and I’m gonna be sharing with you my canning garage as
you know I took a garage that was full of junk got rid of it and I use this
into a little outside kitchen what do we do we repurpose keep all of your jars
these are pickle jars I actually can in these if you didn’t can that’s fine
use them for other things why buy plastic containers to store your food in
at the Dollar Tree even though it’s cheap it’s still a dollar take some jars
of food that you bought save your jars what did Graham will do so what we have
to do is we have to change a train of thought a train of thought is we live in
the modern world let’s be modern but living in the modern world means that
you’re spending more so we have to train our thoughts back to the early 1900s
nineteen fifty four times when ground won’t would take her jars and she would
save them I have been known to stop along the street when I see something
out for free and I grab it I understand some of you live in communities where
you don’t see that a whole lot but here in where I live I get to see it a lot a
lot so it’s really exciting for me also don’t be afraid to put a free
advertisement in your local newspaper I’ve done that many times for garden
seeds or just in general things that I may need it is really amazing how on
Facebook hey Facebook go ahead and say what you need hey does anybody have an
extra large kettle like this candy kettle they could give or loan you would
be surprised don’t buy it new unless you have to
and when you do buy it new think about it first before you click on that button
how I bind things on the Internet can be so much fun too much fun it’s so simple
to look on something and click that button and it’s yours but then you have
to pay for it I don’t use a credit card so I don’t have a credit card to use and
so when I got out of that credit cards were bye-bye now we have one that we
keep in our safe and when we go on vacation like to the mountains or
something it would happen we do have it and use for that way but we don’t use it
for any any items that we mean so here’s my cannon garage 99% of it was things
that were given and things that I found for free and you would be surprised what
you can find is if you have the eyes and you look for it so that’s that is
suggestion number one we use repurpose and recycle no in
America people throw away over 50% of the food do they buy each week food
waste so case in point I had this zucchini and the zucchini was half of it
wasn’t very good I was going to throw the whole thing away but I cut into it
and realized the second part was perfect and fine I can make a huge dent and
paying off your debt who wouldn’t be spending so much money
on food you could take that money and roll it into your dad it circle goes
around and around really it does I know that everybody’s able to glean the kind
of food that I do and it’s been a real blessing I only found out about a couple
weeks ago but did you know a lot of people in my channel have gone to the
food pantries and food banks and asked them hey what do you do with your
leftover produce do you throw it away and I know three of you actually are
gleaning produce imagine that so it all depends on where you are and all depends
on your living situation but for me canning has been amazing
a lot of you asked me about my canning and say well to buy the jars it’s
expensive to buy the lids it’s expensive but for me it’s not and let me tell you
some tips in the beginning of my canning I went to garage sales every single
weekend now I went to garage sales that were very close to my home I don’t go
driving 20 miles away also I had a note and I would give it out to everyone I
knew that garage sale and I said if you can find jars for this price could you
get them for me I’ve been very blessed I’ve had
different occasions where my son in law’s mom found jars for me and that was
a blessing also found a lot of jars for free Craigslist in places like that you
have to be very careful but you can find things I also reuse jars which a lot of
people don’t do but I reuse jars that I find at the grocery store my thrift
store has jars very reasonably priced and every once in a while they have
off sale I clean out what they have I’m still getting jars and using jars to
this day because I’m able once a month to glean large quantities of food I am
able to can that so I’m always getting jars my food isn’t just hoarding from me
we live off of my food plus I give it to my children
and I had my food here if someone would need it my food is something that I
cherish canning I enjoy it it brings back the memories of Grandma fanny and
so canning has been a big thing for me also tractor supply in our area has
other canning supplies 50% off at the end of the season some people in
Oklahoma told me that their Walmart also has jars and lids on sale in fact a dear
friend of mine told me she got lids for a dollar a box when they were on
clearance sale you just have to really look and when you find it
you got to buy a lot of it about a year of lids that I always keep stored up you
know it’s all about what is your priority in life and so if mine is food
and mine is saving food and now I won’t have to go to the grocery store at all
hmm now I just got to find a way to get some milk but this is one way that I
have really had gained financial freedom and that is gleaning food and growing my
own food back in 2007 we were over $300,000 in debt and I share with you in
practical ways in over a thousand videos how we got out of debt and how we had
financial freedom but the key is to learn by your mistakes by your mistakes
in other words you don’t make the same mistakes twice
and we haven’t we don’t use the credit card and we don’t buy things that we
can’t afford and we don’t buy much of anything and I would be honest with you
it is a sacrifice you have to change your mindset it was very hard for me the
first month was almost impossible the second month I got a little better the
third month was a little bit better and then if
fourth month it got really bad again and to wean yourself off of the modern way
of thinking oh it’s old and it’s yucky get a new one but soon it becomes your
lifestyle and you’re never too old to learn these things you know maybe you’re
not in debt but you’re 65 years and older and you’re realizing that your
money it’s not going very far a lot of my people that watch my videos
are 65 years in order and living on Social Security but living on Social
Security means that you go without I understand that younger than you all but
I do understand that and living on Social Security sometimes people have to
choose between their medicine and the food and I want to share with you ways
coming up how you can live an abundant life on Social Security not the hype of
Social Security where people just talk about it in order to try to gain views
but real living off the Social Security you know there’s so many people out here
on the YouTube land that I live off the Social Security but yet they live a very
very extravagant lifestyle I’m talking about the people who live off of Social
Security that niven older older homes people that don’t have anything extra
and that’s my that is my burden and that is my passion is to reach out to those
people because I know what it is like even though I didn’t live off of Social
Security I lived off of no money no money whatsoever I’m living off of no
money whatsoever I live very cheap because that is a choice that I decided
to make and that is a lifestyle I just decided to make but also I’m living this
lifestyle I am able to relate to all of you and and through that that is what my
passion of my channel is it’s sharing with you an abundant life on nothing
nothing not abundant in life want fancy cars or abundant light on big houses or
going out to eat at fancy restaurants it’s having abundant life or nothing you
know it seems like it’s a play of words doesn’t it now to have abundant life you
would think it would be you would have abundance of
things but it’s not true at all in fact the good old days were not good at all
but they were good old days because it was in the heart the good old days they
struggled a lot of people talk about how they struggled and it wasn’t good then I
understand that their struggle was severe and they don’t like when I say
about the struggling being good and being abundant it’s a mindset it’s a
mindset which I am trying to share with you struggling is not fun it doesn’t
it’s not fun you know when I see people my age or I see friends or I see you
know my relations that have nice things and and and can do all these things it’s
not easy but does that bring happiness true happiness yes money can help you
money can make your life easier but in turn making your life easier do
you become more softer do you not hear the pleas of others where is the empathy
that is one of the things so many times when people have an abundance of riches
an abundance of things that the material world offers they like it in their heart
empathy for others they can drive down the street and see someone and say well
they’re there because they chose to be there their life chose them there but
where is the empathy where is the evidence and
we’ve all makes mistakes in her life but do we learn from those mistakes that’s
the key or do we keep making them over and over again and so I can’t wait to
keep showing you live an abundant life or nothing and you know what in turn it
looks like you’re pretty rich if you ask me I’m rich in love I’m Richard friends
I’m rich in family and I’m rich because I learned to live a contented life and
you learned it as well take everyone and let me know in the
comments below suggestions you make on getting out of
debt and living a contented life with financial freedom and not just financial
freedom but freedom in your spirit as well bye everybody
