We use Passion Planner and teach Financial Peace University at Adult Life Training, Inc. Up until this year Passion Planner was also helping us through their “Get one, give one” philanthropy which helped us place planners with each of our participants. Passion Planner makes a nice planner, and this video https://youtu.be/yLSDevykCSQ shows you how to put it together with FPU to kill off your debts and take control of your finances, then invest effectively so you can retire and live like no one else.

If you have not yet completed FPU, or want a refresher,  join me at My Zoom Virtual Class starting Starting Tuesday, May 5, 2020 7:00 PM EDT. The Zoom meeting link will be sent to you before the class. Feel free to message me your questions or sign up at http://fpu.com/1116938 !


Now that you have your Stimulus

Stimulus payments should should have been in your checking account Wednesday! Now that you have that money, how are you using it?

When the lock-in ends, will your life resume stronger than you were before? Or will the mortgage company or landlord hand you a bill for 3 month’s payments that you have no hope of paying?

Here are some hints:

  • (1) Buy just necessary food first,
  • (2) then pay utilities,
  • (3) then pay rent or mortgage for shelter,
  • (4) then buy gas or bus tickets for transportation.

Just make minimum payments required on everything else. Put the remainder of your stimulus payment into savings so you are more sure that you can pay the next set of bills. If you are laid-off work, consider doing some short term pickup work for cash – Kroger is hiring. Check IndianaCareerConnect.com.: there are at least 2013 position(s) open RIGHT NOW in Fort Wayne.

When it’s over, make sure you can get on with life!

When the lock-in ends, this month, next, or whenever, you will avoid the hurt of loosing your shelter – a big new TV or a paid up credit card won’t feel like it is so important then! Your credit rating won’t save you! You don’t need a bank or landlord or utility company handing you a bill for four month’s and demanding that you pay right now or else!
