SHOP TIL YOU DROP: KNOW WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Two White and Red Star Gift Boxes

“Do buy yourself out of a home.”


the season of giving

As you all are out there shopping for gifts this Christmas, remember that you still have to live after the holiday. And that is something people don’t think about as they yank items off the shelfs. You have a family that you have to care for, so think before you just snatch and buy. We are all in the holiday spirit, then you realize something, “Oh yeah, I’m dipping into my living money.” Don’t get put in the street trying to keep up with the rest of shoppers. But these are generally people hard of hearing because they need to keep up.

know when to say when

How can you tell when you need to stop spending and just go home? I have a suggestion, how about stop soon as the money in your pocket is getting low. That’s right, we tend to shop with our debit and credit cards. Then we get our bill at the end of the money or check the bank balance and realize something. You have went over your budget and now you’re scrambling. This is what I mean by shop with what you have in your pocket. Or if you don’t want to carry cash, then get a debit card. But not a debit card you’ll be using connected to your bank account. Put money on this card, and when it’s gone, you know when to stop Christmas shopping.

they’re doing it, why can’t i

If you make $50,000 per year, you’re not shopping for gifts like the person who makes $250,000 per year. So you know what, know what you can afford. I know what I have to spend and what I don’t. But for some reason, people hate looking at their reality and excepting that reality. So they go deeper into debt because they want to be included. I don’t need to be included in the conversation. So for me, it’s easier to say no to buying over what I have in the bank.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
