It’s so easy to get consumed in the habit of buying all the things you’ve always wanted once you start earning your own money. At least that is what I am currently going through right now. I am finally earning more than minimum wage and I have gotten so caught up in the ability to buy things that money goes by so quickly. Sometimes I stop to think “How the HELL did I survive off of $100 a month when I was unemployed?!” It seems nearly impossible to go a week alone without spending $300!! Ugh and lets not even get into it with SAVINGS!!! To say the least, I don’t even have a savings account opened yet I know it’s irresponsible but I just can’t seem to have enough to open one yet!! I’ve been telling myself for weeks now “Okay THIS paycheck I’ll open a savings account” and here I am today without a savings account FML!! But I am DETERMINED!!! I want to move out, get a new car and start traveling this year. This year is the year!!! I know it and I can feel it!! 😀
Anyone have some good savings methods that help you save ?? I have started off with not buying lunch during my lunch breaks so I guess that’s saving me a good 40-50$ a week So I’m taking baby steps but with so many bills it’s so hard to budget for savings right now especially since I want to start with a good $500 in my savings. Maybe this is where my issue lies, I should just start and put $50 in a savings lol. Agh adulating sucks!!
Well I hope you have a beautiful day!
