It’s crazy to think that life was so different…20, 15, 10, 5, 1 year ago.
My tagline for my blog… “riches to rags and dealing with it” was my way of handling the downward spiral of my life… fiscally. As for my morale and overall happiness, it has definitely been an upward bound. Never in a million years did I think that I’d be able to be in a situation where I was able to pay for my own luxury car. The two slips below are the BMWs that were leased under my name. Granted I was with an exer and the car was initially for him, my mom ended up covering the payments when they car came back to me. This is a funny sidenote… I remember that loser tried to claim that it was “his” car but covering the rest of the name minus the B to prove it. First of all, without credit in this country, you are nothing.
My situation right now isn’t ideal. I’m still working, however I am able to take accountability in the monetary choices I make. I think hard before a purchase. If my cart starts off at $2,000, by the time I actually purchase something, it has dwindled down to one item or nothing at all.
I’m completely transparent with Bear because he’s been the one really assisting me in keeping me accountable. If I don’t money, I don’t have money. I need to budget and allocate accordingly.
Life is completely unexpected.
