    Today I was doing my accounts (seeing as I have a tax bill coming at the end of this month).

    Putting rent aside, the two things I spend the most money on are fast-food and SEO (probably everyone knows I buy a lot of services here including link packages, content etc).

    so now I decided to do two things:

    1.cut down all take always - I am going to have home made lunch everyday, and home made meal in the evening - I think this will save a lot per month for me.

    2.im going to focus in on a few well performing SEO projects and ditch the others - I am currently trying to run about 20 sites but its just too much work and not enough focus on any one project to make it excel.
    i always think about this because recently when my partner went to a medium, there was a message from someone (possibly my grandad) that I should take on much less projects in order that I give much more focus to each one.

    anyway, wondering also what you guys mostly spend your money on?

    Definitely eating out/fast foods. It's terrible how much money I waste on food.
    My kids drain me pretty good.
    Hair products take whatever I have left lbvs.

    Lol Shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, leave in conditioner, heat protector, wax, evoo etc. The conditioner gets used up so quickly. It gets costly.

    Gas is not so bad since I got a diesal van - that pretty much halved my gas bills.

    Kids, yep they drain a lot for me also. So does my partner, but she is actually ok with money.

    instead of running 20 sites at once, focus on one site at a time, and making it profitable with it's own sources, then out source the work, and move to the next. Just a suggestion. I reinvest about 20% of my over all, content, SEO, Tools, vps, vpn, proxies, lots of hosting.

    Hmm I'm still a student and doing some YouTube spamming n making some money part time. In Sri Lanka, the economy is really bad n our family also having some financial problems. So one day, I'll definitely become successful online and make my parents happy. Also as a Buddhist, we believe in karma. If we have some really extra money (after some investments like fixed deposits etc for the use when we are getting old) why we just spend them on foods clubs when we can use them to make smile of someone's face or feed hungey people. There are millions of people who dies every second without food. There are lots of talented students who doesn't have money to do their higher studies..lot of really bad things like that. So i'll definitely help them as I can with my extra money. I know my English is horrible but the idea I wanted to tell ya guys is help people. [​IMG]
