Planning on a Budget

Planning on a Budget

  


Does it seem impossible to plan for the future at times - or let me rephrase that - does it seem impossible to plan for the future with a budget at times? It may be hard to keep track of your spending, but it is doable. If you don’t believe me, scroll down because here are some budget strategies that can help you with planning on a budget.

 

Have a motivation

 

The first step with planning on a budget is to of course have a reason behind it. It’s like anything else, if you don’t have a vision or know where the destination is at, chances are you might not finish what you had planned.  As you decide what it is that you are going to save up for, knowing how to budget will become slightly easier. You will have an idea of at least how much you might be able to spend or how much money you will have to be saving each week.

 

Track your Spending


A main goal with budgeting is to of course keep track of how you are using your money. Don’t buy everything you see! According to a study, people’s mental wiring is horrible at imagining future expenses, and therefore this leads to terrible budgeting.  From a psychological point of view, people at times can have spending impulses. One of the reasons for a spending impulse is that they feel the need to reward themselves for the littlest things and so they will go out to buy one thing, but that can result in buying more than was planned.  Therefore, it is recommended to track how much you plan on spending in the week, or have a set amount of cash that you will need for the day. That way, you can leave the rest of your money or credit card at home or in the office so that when you go out you don’t spend more than what you actually need to.

 

Make a savings contribution


When planning on a budget, it is effective to have a savings account or any method in where you are putting a set amount of money away weekly or biweekly. In the world of savings, there are many guidelines, but one commonly used method is the 50/30/20 rule. The rule describes 50 percent as your essentials, such as rent, food, and utilities needed. The 30 percent is considered personal needs like having a cell phone, internet, or having a gym membership. Then finally, the 20 percent is what will go to your savings. However, based on what you are planning your budget for, you can make your own savings guideline. If it’s something big, then maybe save up to 30 percent, but if it’s something small, just save up to 10 percent of your income. It all depends on what the plan for the budget is.

 

Compare your spending to your savings


It might be a scary thought to check your bank account after you’ve been spending so much money, but hey, you can do it! In order to make sure you are not taking money from your savings account, it would be wise to know how much money you are spending. The last thing you would want is to waste all your cash and go into the savings account for money. Therefore, it is a good idea to balance out how much money has been spent throughout the day or week and make sure it doesn’t exceed what you had originally planned to only spend.  Therefore, keeping track of your spending will better help in planning with a budget, it may not be easy, but it is doable, especially if you manage your savings correctly.


You made it! You scrolled all the way to the bottom and have realized that it is doable to plan ahead with a budget- it just requires some will power and a savings strategy. Remember, first find a motivational reason as to why you are planning on a budget, and after that track your spending. Once that is falling into plan, start making a savings contribution that best fits your budget and remember to compare what you are spending to your savings.

Food For Free (Basically with the price they make you pay)

Posted By Jameson Bradley, Tuesday, June 30, 2015

 

Its summer.  We all know how tempting it is to eat out as much as we really want during the summers.  It just seems so easy to pull aside to a fast food place, or say to yourself “I need a treat, let’s go out to eat”.  But all those easy times add up to one pretty difficult time at the end of the summer when you realize you have blown all your money on food.  It’s not even something you can cherish, it’s just food.  It’s gone in about 30 minutes.  But don’t worry, we knew you would have the same problem we have.  So here is a list of cheap places to eat in the Orange County area.  It’s not all of them, just some highlights to check out first.

 

Mexi-Casa - 1778 W Lincoln Ave
Anaheim, CA 92801

In my family Mexi-Casa is practically like a family member.  They have known us all since we were kids, and we know exactly what we want before we walk in the door.  Serving (Americanized) Mexican food, their prices range from about $4-$6 for lunch, and about $5-$7 for dinner.  That’s with chips and salsa and a huge plate of food.  Drinks cost a little bit more, but you really can’t beat the price.  They also have takeout available, but with a little extra charge. Just know where you are going before you go, because it’s a very easy place to miss if you aren’t looking. 

 
Teppanyaki Grill Supreme Buffet - 1630 W Katella Ave
Anaheim, CA 92802

If you looking to go on the pricier side of cheap food, but getting more food than anything else on this list, look no further than the Teppanyaki Grill Supreme Buffet.  Charging around $11 for the meal (drinks are more and lunch is less) they have a wide range of items.  From french fries to garlic bread to a Mongolian BBQ station to stir fry to crab to mac and cheese.  If you can crave it, they pretty much have it.  It’s not the highest quality, but with the price you pay you really shouldn’t care.  Especially when you are going headfirst into your 3rd plate of the meal. 

 
Tacos Jalisco - 480 N Tustin St
Orange, CA 92867

If you aren’t all about the Americanized Mexican food at Mexi-Casa, and are looking for something a little more authentic, then Tacos Jalisco is your place.  Take it from someone who lived in the Jalisco area for two years, this is a legit as it gets.  It’s worth the price in its weight alone.  It’s a great atmosphere, and you can do take out or sit down. 

 
Fantastic Café - 1727 E 17th St
Santa Ana, CA 92705

If the above selections aren’t for you, then maybe Fantastic Café might be the place for you.  With a wide variety foods, and an online ordering system, Fantastic Café creates their selling point with fast and friendly service.  They have lots of seating available, and extremely large portions. 

 

The Dollar Menu - Anywhere

No this isn’t a place to eat where everything is a dollar, but when in doubt, just order off the dollar menu at any fast food chain you go to.  Meals are a great way for places to get more money out of you than you should really be giving them.  Try not to order a drink, because that is where they usually get you.  And usually with most dollar menus you can find exactly what you want in a meal, just cheaper.

Most Common Bucket List Ideas

Common Bucket List Ideas

1.Traveling Alone 
Traveling alone is a very personal experience and it allows a person to grow by meeting new people and seeing another part of the world with your own lens. For example, traveling alone to a different part of the world, Europe for example allows a person to learn things on their own without the external pressures of friends or family.

 

2. Climbing the Eiffel Tower
Not many have the opportunity to visit the Eiffel Tower let alone Paris in their lifetime so why not take advantage of the opportunity by going to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The top of the Eiffel Tower is worth seeing because it was once the tallest structure in the world. 

3. Driving a sports car
Many people only dream of what it would be like to be behind the wheel of a Ferrari or Lamborghini. Driving a fast sports car can be a very enjoyable thing especially at top speed on a freeway. 

 

4. Diving in the Great Blue Hole

The Great Blue Hole is located off the coast of Belize in Central America. The Great Blue Hole is essentially a giant sinkhole in the Caribbean Sea. The experience of diving in it is absolutely incredible because you have the opportunity to see animals and corals native to the Caribbean Sea.

 

5. Ride a camel

Riding a camel in Morocco for example, is an unforgettable experience and it is an experience of a lifetime. 

 

6.Travel the world

Travelling to different parts of the world can be an enriching experience because it can give you the opportunity to learn about new cultures and make friends from all over the world.

Catering Ideas for Your Business

Catering Ideas for Your Business

            Catering is all about connecting with consumers and branding your product to the world. Caterers want people to like their catering and tell people about their business. Caterers attending CaterCon in September can benefit from these helpful ideas to promote your product. Here are five helpful tips that can ensure you new clients for you catering restaurants.

            Personal Connection:

Going to an event and being a wallflower is not going to make your business known or get clients. You have to engage and connect with people who are at the events. Networking is a great idea to give your business card and give a little bit of an overview of what your catering services have to offer. Building relationships with businesses can take effort and show salesmanship.

            Food Tastings:

Tastings can be an advantaged because you can showcase your food and let people try it. It can be a great opportunity to get new clients and make it a great marketing strategy. Food tastings can be presented at corporations and provide catering services to them. Food tastings are great to connect with corporations and maybe be their loyal client.

            Press Releases:

Press releases are not only for big corporations. They can be used for small companies and get local people to get to know your catering services. You can easily go to your local newspaper or magazines and write a section about your catering. Advertising your catering services will likely get more people to know about you and recommend to their friends or family members.

            Food Truck:

Image is everything when branding your company. A catering food truck’s image can make the client interested in your food and most likely check it out. The food truck’s image should have style and sophistication without looking dull and boring. Food trucks are an easy access to food and people like to go here for fast service.

Which Vacation Best Fits Your Personality?

Posted By Gennyvera Pacheco, Thursday, April 30, 2015
Updated: Thursday, April 30, 2015

 


"If you had an all-expenses paid trip to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?”

 

Depending on how you or anyone else answers this question, it tells a lot about the traits that make up your character. Don’t know what exactly those are? Time for a personality quiz!

 

This quiz is about the four temperaments, based on the concept of humorism developed by Hippocrates in ancient Greece. It is the belief that an imbalance or dominance in bodily fluids causes different types of personalities, which was then further expanded on by Galen, who wanted to find a physiological reason behind humorism.

 

Galen found four distinct types: sanguine, choleric, melancholic, and phlegmatic. Find out yours HERE! Once you’re done, check out some suggestions we have for ideal vacations based on your result.

 

SANGUINE

·      Santorini, Greece

o   Distinctly recognized by its famed architecture, Greece is a very joyful and historic destination. Visit stunning Preveli Beach before heading to the famous city of Santorini for breathtaking views, and of course, go look at the majestic Acropolis, featuring the Parthenon. A trip like this is one that no book or movie could prepare you for.

·      Toulouse, France

o   With cheery buildings made from terracotta bricks lining the streets, you’ll definitely think you stepped into a postcard as you travel through Toulouse. Walk around the picturesque city or opt to do a cycling tour down the Canal du Midi. And of course, who could forget the food and wine? You cannot go wrong with the restaurants here, though Le Genty-Magre is a fantastic choice to enjoy classic French cuisine.

 

CHOLERIC

·      Cape Town, South Africa

o   Get in touch with nature and wildlife in beautiful South Africa! Explore the many parks around where lions, elephants, and giraffes roam free, and make sure to take in the iconic backdrop that you’ve probably seen countless times in pictures. Make sure to visit Cape Town, a city rich with inspiring history. Monuments like Nelson Mandela’s prison cell and the District Six Museum are sure to leave visitors with much to reflect on.

·      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (city)

o   Rio is arguably most known for Christ the Redeemer, the large statue of Jesus Christ with arms outstretched towards the city. Beyond viewing the statue, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Rio has plenty of other things to offer: amazing food, bustling city life, and amazing beaches. In particular, check out the ever-so-busy Copacabana Beach, where locals and visitors alike gather together at the border of warm sand and crowded intersections.

 

MELANCHOLIC

·      London, England

o   An immersive experience where modern structures like the London Eye meet historic art museums like the National Gallery, London is the place to go for those of you who consider yourselves more introspective. Spend a Saturday morning lounging in Hyde Park or shopping through Borough Market, then go to world-famous Shakespeare’s Globe and catch a matinee performance of anything from Shakespeare’s own repertory or maybe a more modern play.

·      Machu Picchu, Peru

o   Want to climb towering green mountains and hike a path lined with ancient ruins? Then Machu Picchu in Peru is the place for you! Built during the Inca Empire, Machu Picchu is a hot spot for tourists from all around the world. Though it may seem like a spot better suited for the choleric crowd, its rich history and awe-inspiring structure is definitely perfect for melancholic folks.

 

PHLEGMATIC

·      Phuket, Thailand

o   The Thai islands have been often considered as one of the most tranquil places abundant with beautiful natural sights to see. White sand beaches and clear waters can calm even the most stressed of city dwellers, and put the calm phlegmatic personality at its best. The clear waters are also great for snorkeling and learning more about marine life. Another enlightening experience in Thailand is visiting the temples in Phuket, which are often found within alleyways throughout the city. One of them, aptly called the Shrine of Serene Light, is a fascinating example of getting in touch with Taoism and its influence in Thailand’s history.

·      Bali, Indonesia

o   A list of serene destination vacations would not be complete without mentioning the Indonesian island of Bali. With lush vegetation and seas bluer than the sky has likely ever been in Southern California, Bali is the place to go for ultimate relaxation. Take the scenic trek to Air Pranas Banjar to the pools filled with water from natural hot springs, and pinch yourself to make sure you aren’t dreaming.

European Sports Venues to See Before You Die

Posted By Jess Simpson, Tuesday, April 28, 2015

 

 

With the greatest stadiums in America in the books, I would be remiss not to look at the great stadiums that can be found abroad. A look will be taken into the great stadiums of Europe, where soccer reigns supreme. The passion found in these venues equal anything found stateside. For the more worldly sports fan, these destinations can’t be missed.

 

Wembley Stadium: London, England

 

For those looking for a European sports trip, this is the stadium to see above all others. Wembley Stadium is the largest stadium in the United Kingdom and second largest in Europe, seating up to 90,000 visitors. Wembley Stadium, much like MSG, has hosted legendary concerts as well as epic sporting events. The stadium is host to the English national soccer team and is the location of some of the biggest games in soccer and rugby.

 

Camp Nou/ Santiago Bernabeu Stadium: Barcelona/ Madrid, Spain

 

These stadiums are worth linking together just as the two host teams are linked together in the annals of history. Barcelona and Real Madrid are two titans in the history of professional soccer. The passion that the fans have for their teams is unmatched in the soccer world and seeing any game is worth the trip, but a “Classico” between the two is where the real show is. No sporting event delivers as spectacular results as consistently as a match between the two giants and is worth watching even for those who do not take interest in the sport. One piece of advice would be that if you wear the gear one of the teams, it would be smart to go to that team’s stadium, as the fans can get rowdy.

 

Allianz Arena: Munich, Germany

 

If you visited the above European stadiums and are still hungry for more sports tourism, Allianz Arena is for you. This stadium is a robust venue that hosts another titan of world soccer, Bayern Munich, and is quite the spectacle. The surrounding facade is covered with inflatable air panels that are illuminated at night to provide a show that you will remember for a lifetime.

 

With another set of destinations, you are now set for a sensational sports experience in Europe. From the grand stadiums of Germany to the historic fields in England, the possibilities are endless. Though these are the most recognized stadiums, there are many more that I would encourage anyone to discover for themselves. So go out there and continue your sports adventures.

American Sports Venues to See Before You Die

Posted By Jess Simpson, Tuesday, April 28, 2015

    

 

For sports fans, there is nothing quite like watching a game live. The tastes, the smells, and the people make the experience of live sports unmatched. The great thing about sports is that there are so many historic venues to visit. For those fanatical sports fans, there are some special places that you should visit before you die.

 

Fenway Park: Boston, MA

 

Opened in 1912, Fenway Park is the oldest stadium in the MLB. Home to one of the most storied franchises in baseball, the Red Sox, Fenway is one of the more unique stadiums in the league. This is due to their extremely high left field wall called “The Big Green Monster.” It has been called “a shrine” by former pitcher Bill Lee and watching a game there is quite the experience. One key part of the Fenway experience is the singing of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” by the whole crowd in the middle of the 8th. Whether you are an experienced baseball fan, or a newcomer to the sport, Fenway is an experience that can’t be missed.

 

Wrigley Field: Chicago, IL

 

Host to the Chicago Cubs and second oldest (1914) of all baseball stadiums, Wrigley Field is arguable just as storied as Fenway. While Fenway has the Big Green Monster, Wrigley Field has its own defining feature in the ivy that grows on the bricks that make up the outfield wall. The unusual wind patterns coming from Lake Michigan means that games could change from a pitcher's park to a home run launch pad in the blink of an eye.

 

Lambeau Field: Green Bay, WI

 

Opened in 1968 on Lombardi Avenue, Lambeau Field plays host to the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are one of the oldest and most historic teams in the NFL and the only major sports team that is owned by the local community. The field provides a great experience, but it is best in the end zones, where home players who score do the “Lambeau Leap” into the open arms of the fans. If you plan to go in the winter months, make sure to bring extra layers, the field didn’t get the nickname, “The Frozen Tundra” for nothing.

 

AT&T Stadium: Arlington, TX

 

The home to the Dallas Cowboys is the newest stadium on this list, having opened in 2009. Where this stadium lacks in legacy, it more than makes up for in spectacle. Nick named, “Jerry’s World” after flamboyant owner Jerry Jones, AT&T Stadium is the largest stadium in the NFL and can hold up to 105,000 visitors. Complete with a retractable roof and a massive jumbotron, this stadium is a luxury venue that is worth the trip.

 

Madison Square Garden: New York, NY

While this stadium is best known for hosting the NBA’s Knicks and the NHL’s Ranges, MSG is home to many other teams and events as well. From major prize fights to historic concerts, Madison Square Garden is among the most prestigious venues in America, transcending it’s sporting event use. Opened in 1968, this version is the 4th venue to bear the same name and is the oldest venue in New York today. Whether catching an exciting game or seeing a concert to remember, Madison Square Garden is definitely a venue to visit.

 

Staples Center: Los Angeles, CA

 

Nothing can match the glitz and glamor of a game at Staples Center. While a newer stadium, opened in 1999, the Staples Center already has it’s fair share of history thanks to highly successful Lakers and Kings teams. The flashy style of the stadium is only matched by the style of play the host teams display. While the Lakers may be in a down period, the Clippers are picking up the slack and playing an exciting brand of play that fits the stadium and makes it a key destination.

 

With the stadiums listed, you have some great destinations to begin an epic sports tour journey. There are so many sporting venues out there that a list like this could not begin to cover them all, but these are the absolute best. Now go forth and conquer, sports fans, and create memories to last a lifetime.

Practicing Gratitude

Posted By Jess Simpson, Thursday, April 23, 2015
Updated: Thursday, April 23, 2015

 

 

 

For those who are like me, what separates the highly productive and successful is a fascinating topic. Among other reasons, mindset seemed to be the one of the greatest separators. While there are myriad aspects of mindset that can be focused on and improved, I found gratitude a surprising one that many successful people shared. Contrary to popular opinion, many high achievers practice gratitude on a regular basis and believe it is a major contributor towards success and happiness. Beyond the obvious, there have been many academic studies that show that there are legitimate health benefits of gratitude as well. That being said, one might not know where to begin working on this mindset. With that in mind, I researched the best activities worth trying that can improve this essential emotional muscle.

 

Gratitude Journal

 

One good practice would be to record the things you are grateful for daily. From personal success to the people you meet, or even an ongoing positive part of your life, you could write anything as long as it is a sincere thing you are grateful for. While the time of day is not as essential so long as it is regular, there are two main schools of thought as to when to practice this activity. Many will say to write in your journal the morning, in order to start your day right. Others will say to do it at night to put yourself more at ease before you go to sleep. Personally I prefer working on my journal in the morning, but any time is good so long as it is consistent.

 

Recognize Negative Situations

 

As with any mindset, gratitude is something that needs to be worked on and does not just happen to you. There will be moments, and people in life that will set you into a negative mood, and that is fine because it is a natural reaction. The key is recognizing those triggers and emotions, and how we react to them. Take some time to reflect on what has set you into a negative mood and think of ways to be positive and grateful in order to combat negative emotions. While a positive reaction is good, being proactive and learning from your negative situations is the best way to alter your mindset easily.

 

Turn the Negatives into Positives

 

Once you have worked on recognizing what triggers negativity, focusing on how to react to them is the next step. Whenever one of those negative moments trigger, whether they be an annoyance or a true problem, changing your perspective can be useful. Rather than having negative thoughts, ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?” or, “What is there to be grateful about this?” Simple questions like these can affect how you see bad times, and how you go about your day (and life) going forward.

 

Compliment Others

 

Compliments are a form of gratitude that most don’t think of. When you are genuinely complimenting another, you are actively thinking of something about them that you are personally grateful for. Giving at least one compliment daily is another activity that forces you to operate in a mindset of gratitude. The best part is that it puts another in the same mindset so you are getting twice the work done.

 

These are just a few practices that can change your mindset for the better and help take you down the path of success and happiness. There is a wealth of information available on this topic and if these tips don’t help I would encourage anyone to look for something that does. Hopefully this post was as uplifting to read as it was to write. Now go work on your gratitude today and leave the world a better place than it was yesterday.

Creating Habits for Success

Posted By Jess Simpson, Thursday, April 9, 2015
Updated: Thursday, April 9, 2015

 

 

The day-in-day-out consistency needed to become successful is often difficult for many who look to advance their careers. Many seek out motivation through videos, radio shows, or even books. While this is a great thing to do, it has a flaw. The flaw is that motivation is not a lifestyle, but a state of mind. While one can make efforts to stay motivated, it is not practical to think you can be motivated at all times. There will be moments when what you should do and what you feel like doing are on opposite sides. Perhaps the best way to combat these feelings are by creating good habits. When habits are established, your state of mind has less power over what you do. Here are some habits you can work on when motivated that will carry you through the times you are not.

 

Focus yourself in the morning

 

The morning is a great time to set the path of your day, making it a prime time for focusing yourself on what is to come. Meditation and reviewing goals can be a great way to do this. One ritual that can be successful is to write down three things you are grateful for, three things you are excited about, and three things you are motivated to do. It puts you in a good mood, gets you motivated, and focuses the motivation on a few clear goals.

 

Write down your goals

 

Feeling overwhelmed can completely derail anyone from motivation. Having set goals are a great way to stay focused. Starting with setting your goals for the year, you can break it down into shorter term goals. They let you take things one step at a time and give you a clear path, which leads to confidence and generates motivation from within. Reviewing them often helps keep you on track, even when motivation isn’t there.

 

Prioritize your tasks

 

Sometimes the various tasks and distractions in life can derail you from the path you set upon. It is important to make a habit of setting time to prioritize your tasks. This habit is especially effective when you are guided by clear goals. Whether it be daily, weekly, or monthly, prioritizing tasks can sharpen your focus on what is most important. This focus can help you finish tasks faster and allow more time for the other things that would have dragged you away from what needed to get done.

 

Exercise

 

This is not a novel idea but is often overlooked and should be stressed. Regular exercise is important for keeping up high energy levels, which helps you stay focused. Along with the energy, good health can also keep you positive in tough situations.

 

The above actions are not tough to do, but the key is consistency. Things that are easy are sometimes easy to ignore. While motivation is not static, it can be a great tool to utilize when it is high. Investing your motivation into establishing good habits can increase productivity and success, even in the absence of motivation.
