10 Money Categories

Posted by edieg@att.net on August 7, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

Happy Money Magic Monday, fellow learners. The money tip for this Monday is to track your spending by using 10 categories. The list is in alphabetical order except for the #1 category because SAVINGS should always be paid first. Send me an email at tlc@50statesclub.net if you’d like some ideas on how to prioritize your savings or if you’d like help in tracking your expenses. Here are the 10 categories:

  1. Savings
  2. Debt Payments
  3. Education
  4. Food & Dining
  5. Giving
  6. Hobbies and Entertainment
  7. Home
  8. Money Management and Taxes
  9. Personal Care
  10. Travel

For personal books, I prefer to use Quicken. It is the most comprehensive tracking system for your personal books. (I also highly recommend Quickbooks for business books.) Let me know if you need any help in getting started in using either of these tools or in maintaining your personal books. Happy Monday!

Best. Summer. YET!

Posted by edieg@att.net on July 26, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

Hello, learners. I posted on Facebook a bit ago that I couldn’t go into details but that I was having the best summer yet (I’d say ever, but you never know about the future). I started the post by saying I couldn’t go into details, but the friends kept asking me for details. So, I […]


B.P. Back Pocket

Posted by edieg@att.net on July 22, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

The Learning Club’s inspiration is to increase Back Pocket Skills. These are skills you learn to enhance and better your life but that you might not need on a regular basis. So, they are in your back pocket in case you need them.  For example, you may not ever have to perform CPR on someone, […]


The New Phone Books Are In; the New Phone Books Are In!

Posted by edieg@att.net on July 13, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

That’s what Steve Martin said in The Jerk when he anxiously awaited to be listed in the new phone book because that meant, “Now I’m somebody!” Anyways, a new class list is in for a list of Master Classes that The Learning Club is offering in July. This is so exciting to have MATH classes […]


Wayr (Where) Vs. How Wednesday

Posted by edieg@att.net on July 12, 2017 in Happy Day of the Week |

Sometimes people admonish sensitive people to get a thick skin. However, what most don’t realize is that sensitive people can be keenly aware of their surroundings and can know things without understanding the source of that knowledge. Sensitive people know how to assess situations and to read subtle clues to know when reality is different […]


What have you learned, Dorothy?

Posted by edieg@att.net on July 3, 2017 in W.H.Y.L.D. What Have You Learned, Dorothy |

If you are a frequent reader of The Learning Club posts, you’ve deduced by now that the themes in The Wizard of Oz bring lots of inspiration to these posts. WHYLD is the new spelling for wild. It asks the question that we should be asking ourselves repeatedly on the road of life. “What Have […]


Two Questions!

Posted by edieg@att.net on June 20, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

I know of an accountant who asks potential clients two questions. 1. Where did you go to college? and 2. To what charities do you contribute? Your first reaction, which is totally normal, may be very put off by these two questions, but really, his thinking is unique and kind of refreshing. First of all, […]


The Silver Medal in the BFF Competition

Posted by edieg@att.net on June 8, 2017 in Home Economics |

Jerry Seinfeld has a story about his problem with the silver medal in the Olympics. You win the gold, and you go down in history. If you win the bronze, well, at least you won something. But, instead of thinking of it as 2nd place, that silver award is like saying, “No one lost better […]


Take Time

Posted by edieg@att.net on May 19, 2017 in In a Category All Its Own |

Hello, fellow learners. For most learners, especially me, there is nothing better than a great seminar. I went on one today. The criteria for judging a seminar as great comes down to one ingredient: it makes me better. There are all sorts of ways to get better – in our habits, in our careers, in […]
