I’ve found that carrying cash realllly helps with this. That also means that I leave my credit cards at home. I know that means I don’t have an unlimited amount of money in an emergency, but I do still carry my debit card, which has enough on it. I’ve also found that only carrying the amount of money I’ll need for the day is helpful. If all I’m doing is going to work and then home I won’t carry any cash, which means I can’t just stop at dunks to get coffee.
I feel like this is working really well so far. We’ll see how it holds up over time. 3 years ago
Pretty much the only time I don’t floss at night now is when I’m sick or drunk, so I’m marking this as complete! 3 years ago
was actually “Who You Know” by Theresa Allen (I think that’s her name? I forget, but it started with an A).
Now I’m working on People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. It’s about a librarian so I love it already. Plus I understand a majority of the jargon which makes me feel smart. 3 years ago
I got rid of some more clothes and a bunch of my books. I really feel like I’m ALMOST there. I think once I’ve moved into my own place and completely organized all my belongings I’ll be able to check this off as complete. Here’s hoping this will be done mid-September. 3 years ago
I don’t know if I have enough discipline for this…I really looove sleep and I always end up sleeping past my alarm… 3 years ago
Just passed the $500 mark for my savings account. I really want to save up 3 months’ salary for emergencies. Slowly but surely. 3 years ago
This means saving up for things before buying them instead of using credit. Credit cards need to be reserved for monthly recurring bills (this way I’ll still get SOME rewards points) which I will pay off immediately (at least, this is the hope).
I feel better about buying something when I’ve saved up for it anyway. I’m currently trying to save up for a bunch of kitchen stuff for my new apartment. I have a few months and hopefully I’ll get a pretty decent discount through work.’
I’m going to start working on this goal by trying to use cash only. Going to try to go to the ATM this morning before work. 3 years ago
I have a job right now…and I feel secure in it. But I really want a library job again. So I’m going to start looking/applying more often. And keep my fingers crossed. 3 years ago
