Power of Money When Flat Broke

Power of Money When Flat Broke

The Power of Money When You Are Flat Broke Hi- my name is Kim and I have a problem. Well, not so much a problem as an obsession. Do you ever think about the money you spend, no matter when or where? I told my hubby this morning that I feel like my life is a fixation on money. If I say, I need to go to the grocery store, it’s really saying “This is about money”- if I say, I need to work on my website, “This is about money”-or even, the dog’s nails need clipping, “oh, wait, that
