    17. 17. Homeward Bound <ul><li>Where Do I Start? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Make Up Your MIND! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Start by thinking about your situation. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get real and be specific. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Start listing the things you know need to address; impulse buying, savings, old debts. Write down three of four realistic goals that you can stick to. For example, “I am going to limit my spending at the convenience store or snack machine to $3 a week’. “I will begin saving a minimum amount every paycheck of $25”. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid fantasy-land goals, no one changes instantly, it will only frustrate you. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you need guidance in getting started, don’t give up, you can still buy a home with some work. </li></ul></ul></ul>Brunswick Housing Opportunities, Inc.

Nothing elaborate but keep track of your spending and savings and watch your habits change! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Start by thinking about your situation. Are you ready to buy a home? How much can you afford? Research has shown that when you track what you do </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>it increases your ability to accomplish your goal. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The key is to stay accountable to the process. If you do have a misstep, look back at your journal, celebrate your success to this point and get right back to the journey! </li></ul></ul></ul>Brunswick Housing Opportunities, Inc. April 1, 2010
