Oh Yeah, one more thing I am doing:
Besides actually cutting back my costs (see above post, I am actually trying to SAVE money….
As I am paid weekly, I am now putting an entire paycheque (or as much as humanly possible) away during those 4 months a year where we have FIVE Friday’s. Based on my weekly take-home salary, I am actually putting away a couple of thousand dollars a year- just based on the nature of the calendar… who would have thought? LOL
Now that I have quit smoking, I am now paying myself a MINIMUM of $5 per day into a jar, which I can not see the contents of. Any extra cash I find myself in possession of also gets deposited into this jar. After even a short time, I am not really sure how much is in there. It will make a nice surprise over the course of time, when I can deposit it into an interest-bearing account, or to pay off more debt. Sounds weird, but out of sight, out of mind and therefore, out of my spending hands! LOL
I am very interested in hearing from other’s who also found ways of paying themselves….
