How One Waitress Annihilated $6K Of Student Loans In Just Two Months

Description

If you're struggling to pay off debt, consider what one waitress did to clear up $6K of student loans in just eight weeks. Business Insider reports Chelsea Clarke started waitressing upon graduating from college, and immediately adopted four key financial strategies. Business Insider reports she hustled for side gigs first. She picked up extra shifts and networked with her customers to land website design jobs. Next, she kept her money in cash. Paying for things in cash immediately caused her to reduce her spending. Then, she used a spreadsheet to track every bit of income and expenditure. That kept her on track so she could adopt her fourth strategy. The fourth tactic was to use her spreadsheet to set weekly goals and, if she met them, to celebrate in an affordable but meaningful way!

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
