How Is the New Year Treating Your Resolutions?Posted: January 10, 2012
Yesterday, I noticed the gym was emptier than last week. Some people must have given up on their resolutions already. Wow. It only took 7 days.
I will admit that there are some resolutions I posted on this blog that I’d like to kick to the curb. For example, I decided to save $20 of MY personal spending money every month. There’s a billion things I would love to do with that measly sum of money.
If I had not resolved to save it, I would buy a new shirt or some snazzy organizational bins. I’d sample a few tasty drinks from Starbucks or a bottle of wine. Yet, what would those purchases leave me with at the end of the year? Nothing. So, I’m sticking with my promise to save….even if Target, the Mall and other sneaky businesses do entice me on a daily basis. Next year, I will have an extra $240 in my pocket. I know that is not a lot, but it’s better than nothing!
Sometimes, I need some inspiration to save. I find that reading other money-saving blogs encourage me to quit spending money. Here is a link to a blog I recently found, down$withdebt. Happy reading!
