Today marks a bench mark in my world of finances and how to save money. Taking money seriously. Saving money for a vacation, a birthday gift or maybe even some thing nice for your self. As it happens most people get paid on Fridays, me, personally want to go spend some money at the end of my five day week.
Some idea’s to break it down, is easier said than done but here are some ideas:
1.) Taking out the exact amount needed for the weekend.
2.) Hiding 5-10% of cash in a secret spot.
3.) Before going out and about shopping on a piece of paper your list, on the bottom write down your estimate of spending of all items.
These are my top three things I do on my Friday or Saturday morning to ensure my self that I won’t go over my limit.
An interesting fact is we used to write checks more often, now transactions are done by credit card. This makes things really easy just to swipe and go. Taking out cash will save you money in the long run and you will know, in hand, how much you have.
To watch out for ourselves is key to success is take charge of our money, finance. “Where time is money, and money is time”.
