I found the easiest way to save money was through an automated draw from my primary checking into my savings account. On top of that, I took some IT contracting work and put all the money from that (which was extra) into savings. In the past 6 months, I’ve been able to save almost $10,000, without altering my lifestyle.
I’ll call this a success.
It is really cool. I have a sizable collection of corks for this very reason.
My ex wanted to do it so she went out and bought a bucket of corks at a garage sale. Me? I’d rather force myself to drink all the wine and earn the cork board. :-)
My friend and I are rebuilding the ‘86 Camaro (pictured here) into a go-fast street car. This is my first real foray into the world of cars, and it has been awesome so far.
I am keeping track of the status of the project on my website
