A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello Everyone,

Sorry this issue is late in coming out. We have been on a trip last week
and we just got in this weekend. This was the first time in a long time
that we didn’t have to do email work while away. It was great!

While visiting the forum, I noticed we have several new answers to existing
posts. Thanks to all of you, who regularly view the posts and answer when
you are able. Without your contributions the forum would not be as
effective as it has become.

Remember, the more The Frugal Life News subscribers the more collection of
frugal knowledge that will be available to all of us. For this reason, we
would appreciate it if you would pass The Frugal Life News on to your
friends! After all, it’s how we grow!

Until next time,
Randal

FRUGAL FINANCES

“WE ARE IN A BETTER PLACE…”

On her latest book tour, Suze Orman, author of six bestselling financial
self-help books, makes this observation…

“Today we live in a world with more unknowns than I have ever seen in my
life.” — Suze Orman

Here is a letter from a current client whose family has experienced one of
these “unknowns”, and, by preparing for the “unknowns” by taking care of the
“knowns”, she and her family were able to weather the storm.

“Dear Greg,
We didn’t know my husband would lose his job. He was called and let go
without any notice. Because we had paid off many of our debts we made it
through.

We immediately cut back even further than we had before. I began to budget
groceries, etc. I guess I thought before I was cutting back… but now I
see places where we kept spending money we could have used to pay debts.

My salary was just enough to pay all the bills and buy groceries. We didn’t
have any extra money for our payoff accelerator.

My husband has now started his own company. We’re hoping soon we’ll see
some of the benefits of his hard work. We’re not getting a check from his
new company but it is paying for itself.

I wanted to start fresh looking at our income and see if I can come up with
$$ for payoff accelerator. We’re still living on my salary – but we have
fewer bills.

I want to get back on track and become debt free as soon as possible. This
has helped me to realize that the only way to be safe is to be debt free.

If we had not paid off many of our debts last year, we would have had to
sell our home or our retirement property to make ends meet.

This was a very stressful time for our family but through our faith in Jesus
Christ and the practical advice we received from your program we are
beginning to see the light.

I think we are in a better place and hope we never go back to our loose
spending habits.” — Janet Seay

Paying off known debts enabled Janet and her family to survive the unknown
surprise layoff. Such a close brush with disaster re-kindled her desire to
get Debt Free as quickly as possible, understanding thoroughly that this is
the “only way to be safe.”

Payoff All of your Debts in 5-7 Years using the money you
ALREADY make!

FRUGAL TIPS FROM OUR SUBSCRIBERS

CHIP CLIPS

My son when he was about 10 came up with this and it works great. Ya know
those hangers ya get when you buy skirts or toddler clothes that the pants
are hung on. Well I had a bunch of them and really didn’t use them but
didn’t get rid of them. I have bought chip clips from the stores but they
don’t hold up real well and one day my son was looking for something to keep
the chip bag closed with. He broke the end of one of those hangers off
slipped it over the bag and pushed the little medal piece down and we had a
new chip clip. They last for years.
