A Fruitful Life

Life can throw a few curve balls from time to time, leaving you vulnerable to financial ruin. However, if you learn smart ways to manage your money, you can avoid falling behind.

Recovery

Part of the financial recovery process is eliminating piles of debt. It’s very easy to accumulate debt. However, it is much harder to reduce it. The good news is that there are a few ways to lower debt fast. One way is to refinance your mortgage and use the money from the closing to pay off credit cards. If you don’t own a home or don’t have equity, you can take out a small loan and achieve the same results. Loan companies in Jacksonville, TX provide small installment loans with affordable monthly payments. 

Going Forward

In order to avoid falling into debt again, you need to change your spending habits. You work hard for your income and tossing it away is not smart. Instead, create a budget that works for you. There are many worksheets available for free online. A budget will open your eyes to where your money goes. As a result, you can use it to avoid repeating the same mistakes. 

Spending Less

People who live a comfortable life know how to handle money. They value every dollar they earn and weigh the pros and cons when it comes to purchases. For example, lately, your car is costing you money in repairs and general maintenance. In haste, you may opt to replace it with a new vehicle. However, if you weigh the pros and cons, you may come to a different conclusion. You can fix the car for $1,500.00 versus paying monthly payments of $300.00 to $400.00 for four or more years. This is a method that you should use prior to committing to any big-ticket item. 

Wasteful Spending

It’s not just large purchases that can sap your disposable cash. Small purchases several times each week can cost you hundreds per month without notice...until you go to pay your bills and you come up short. Most people have areas where they waste money. Figure out what you waste money on and reel it in.

Preserving Your Assets

General maintenance of your home and auto will reduce the need to pay out much larger sums of money. If you replace older windows and doors, your heating and cooling costs become more affordable. The same applies to your vehicle, changing things like the oil and filters on schedule will keep it running efficiently, costing you less in gas and avoiding an early replacement.

The Rainy Day Fund

When you live life one day at a time with no interest in tomorrow, you won’t have money set aside to cover the unexpected expenses. Having an emergency fund in place for these times will allow you to pay for the expense without borrowing from bill money or taking on more debt. 

With an emphasis on becoming smart with your money, you can experience a better quality of life. You can take vacations, take a ride on your mountain bike, and still have money to maintain good credit. 

Mens Presents and the Bathurst 1000


Fans of V8 supercars rank the Bathurst 1000 as the utmost of races in Australian motorsports. The Bathurst 1000 draws crowds from fields afar for this spectacular racing event. There are many more knowledgeable people on the actual cars of the Bathurst 1000 than I, but when looking at some mens presents the other day with names such as Hardie Ferodo 500 emblazoned on them, I decided it was time to explore further the history behind such names and the heros behind them. Significance and History of the Name: Beginning at Phillip Island as the 1960 Armstrong 500, the 500 mile race, while comparing which makes had the best combinations of speed, ability, and dependability, also held an opportunity for Armstrong to advertise its products, particularly its shock absorbers.

After only three years of use, the track at Phillip Island was worn down and not suitable for racing, so in 1963 the race was moved to the Mount Panorama track in Bathurst, NSW. (for those who may be interested, the Mount Panorama track is aptly named due to the incredible view overlooking the fields around it!) Over the years the race has changed names due to sponsorships, most recently being termed the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, but the legendary merchandise of mens presents still has names such as Hardie Ferodo 500 and Armstrong 500 emblazoned on it. Cars of the Bathurst 1000: In the beginnings, the 1960 Armstrong 500 was specifically for only Australian made cars, whereas now it has branched out and included cars such as Nissan, Ford, and the BMW. Holden and Ford still hold the significant titles, and the Big Bangers have gone down in history. Famous Names of the Bathurst 1000: While Holden ranks for the highest number of wins for the car make, there are some drivers' names that have gone down in history as legends of the Bathurst race. Names such as Peter Brock, Bob Jane, and Jim Richards have become household names amongst car racing fans. Why is this so? Peter Brock rightfully earned the title King of the Mountain due to his nine victories, and winners of the Bathurst 1000 now receive the Peter Brock Trophy in honour of this legend.

Bob Jane, most commonly known to the general people for his national tyre company, won four successive races, giving him an excellent foundation for his entrepreneurial endeavours in starting his automotive businesses. And Jim Richards? Well, since his beginnings in 1978 until the present day, he still holds the record for the most starts in the race - 35. He has also won the race 7 on seven occasions. Though not as highly ranking as the first three drivers named, Allan Moffat deserves a mention. A Canadian-born man, Moffat is Ford's most successful driver in the race and in 1977 won his fourth Bathurst 1000. While this only barely touches on the significance of the Bathurst 1000 in the world of motor sports, I have attempted to give an overview of one of the greatest races in Australian motorsports and explore the significance of some of those legendary titles I saw on various mens presents - the titles that will be remembered down through the years of motor racing.
