Start the New Year off right by getting rid of pesky calls on your iPhone:
To block incoming calls:
- Go to recents.
- Look to the right of the telephone number.
- Tap the blue circle with the letter i in the center.
- Scroll to very bottom of screen.
- Tap block this caller.
In the future, when the person with this number calls you, they will hear the phone ring. They can leave a message if they like.
You will not be bothered by hearing their incoming call nor will you ever have to listen to their message.
You can remove the block on their phone number should you choose to.
Take time to identify which calls you truly want to block. This is a simple way to regain control of your life. Give it a try and see for yourself.
Turn off your phone during meals.
This is another easy way to avoid unwanted calls during family time.
Turn off the TV during meals.
You know how hard it is to hear the person taking to you when the television is blaring in the background. Mealtime is family time, no matter how small. Many of us endure long commutes to and from work and may be pretty tired by the time we walk in the door.
It is important to create a safe harbor in our lives. Our homes are supposed to be our safe harbor. It is up to us to create that space.
The above quote sure is true! How many little bills or daily expenses do you have that rob you of cash for your emergency fund?
How do you get your money under control?
- Pay yourself first.
You pay yourself first by setting up a savings account with automatic deposits from each of your electronically deposited pay checks.
- Open a checking and savings account at a CREDIT UNION.
- Open a 401k plan at work. Check if your company will match you.
- Buy company stock with employee purchase plan.
- Start small—start saving some of your pay check today!
I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
