Tired of Being Broke? Try some Home Economics.


The 30 day savings rule is a simple financial trick that can help anyone improve their money management techniques.

Using this rule is pretty straightforward. The next time you find yourself thinking about making an impulse purchase or simply buying something that you don’t need, close your browser window or walk out of the store because you’re not going to buy that item. Well, not yet, anyway.

With the 30 day savings rule, you defer all non-essential purchases and impulse buys for 30 days. Instead of spending your money on something you might not need, you’re going to take 30 days to think about it.

At the end of this 30 day period, if you still want to make that purchase, feel free to go for it. Alternatively, if you totally forget about that purchase or you decide that it wasn’t worth it, you’ll have saved yourself a chunk of change as you work toward your FINANCIAL GOALS

Pretty easy, huh?

What exactly is an impulse purchase? It can be anything from being to lazy to cook and ordering take out, or wanting the new 72" TV, when there is nothing wrong with the one you have. We have been turned from human beings to humans buying...thanks to mass media and corporate greed at the expense of humanity.

I'm a food guy, so let's stick to this for now. The Pandemic created a new, divided world. The outcome likely didn't entirely go the way the POWERS THAT BE INTENDED. In my opinion, the expectation was to force people to stay home and basically desocialize. Didn't work entirely, yes people stayed home, and ordered take out and delivery food at an astonishing rate. Strangely, the only businesses that benefited were the Big Brands such as McD'onald's, Burger King and other such nonsense.

Not everyone followed this basically self destructive behavior. Self destructive because it epties your pocketbook and slowly kills you financially and physically. Some people actually started cooking, WOW EH!

I started my Private Chef Business in September 2021, just about the time the pandemic was losing it's grip. We felt that bringing the restaurant experience directly to the client would fit in nicely, as the pandemic had shuttered many restaurants due to financial losses. Behind every gray cloud, there is a ray of sunshine. Businesses like ours started Popping Up, not exactly the same, but with similar models. Pop Up restaurants, unique take away and delivery concepts, food trucks and of course Private & Personal Chefs.

That's all folks, enjoy your weekend, and if you still haven't booked your special summer events, give us a shout! Dinner Thyme Private Chef Association.
