Today were going to discuss a little Operational Security. I don’t go down that hole too much, I’m pretty public which I have to be for the site. There are a few tips to help you out though. What prompted this post was a friend of mine on facebook. She has a habit of posting her daily activities. I think this is a terrible idea and I’m going to tell you why.
I hate debt. A lot. I’ve always hated it though not as defined as I now know it. I don’t have much of it and that’s the way I like it. I’ve been thinking more and more about the little I do have and it’s become somewhat obsessive. I don’t like it and want it gone now. I’ve played with facts and figures on how long it will take to pay off and tried to figure ways to speed it up. I’ve racked my brain and laid awake at night have only hate it more. Today I’m going to talk about the evil of debt, missed opportunities and how to work out from under it.
I was talking to a friend of mine recently and he was talking about how happy he is to have just paid off his home. He is in his early thirties and has a wife and two kids. Then he started to complain about work. His drive to work is over an hour each way. He puts $30 in gas in his tank twice a week. So he is spending at least $240 a month in gas to get to work. I know this because I started asking him a lot of questions. My mind was swimming with ideas of the freedom of not having to pay for shelter. I’ll share our conversation with you and some of my thoughts.
I saw on Facebook recently a link to a no-potato salad, a recipe to make knock off potato salad, using cauliflower. I’ve made mashed cauliflower for years and enjoy potato salad so I couldn’t believe I had never thought of this before. I am terrible about following recipes so I skimmed the article and decided to wing it. I used the things I had on hand to make this instead of going out for anything. If your the type to follow a recipe I’ll share mine with you, if you are not just skim and wing it too!
