Extreme Budgeting $31 Dollars for 21 Days [MADNESS]

extreme budgeting

So I have just reach back to New York City from my vacation in Jamaica.  I can’t tell you how much fun I had for you just won’t believe me.  Being back in my country and living the simple life and be around the person who gave me life was just a wonderful thing.  My mom is like super cool.  She might be a bit stiff here and there, because she is a very structured person and strict, but even she let loose as be both enjoyed our dual vacation.

It felt good to have my mom around again, breakfast, lunch and dinner, served to me like a king.  Okay okay, I know I am not supposed to have my mom working I should be catering to her, but we haven’t seen each other for over 3 years, she missed me.  As I missed her as well.  But enough of my vacation, I will get back to that, let’s jump into my new challenge for the holiday/christmas season.

So the topic is “Extreme Budgeting” in which I need to do to purge myself for the financial dip I went in slightly for my mini vacation and my year overall objective.  So we are going to dual combo this challenge.  Extreme Budgeting and Extreme Dieting, it’s not really extreme, but I am calling it so via it’s sound more interesting don’t it?

Snapshots of Jamaica [Vacation]

Jamaica Photography by RawMultimedia Beautiful Vacation

Jamaica as you may or may not know is a beautiful country and island.  I was fortunate to be born and raised there, and is very proud of my people and my heritage.  Great people such as Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey ( in which I grew up in a community named after him called Garveymeade), Oliver Samuels (comedian & actor), one of my greatness musical inspiration Beenie Man (whom won a Grammy for his musical talents), alongside many other great and wonderful people whom you may know or not know, were born within my small island I call home.

I didn’t get too festive with my stay as I went to visit family, and hone in on some rest and relaxation, I managed to capture a few photos while I enjoyed my stay.  I am going to share a few photos I found interesting to me.
