Allegra A.Doing things differently to see different results in 2013

It’s New Year’s Day. Normally ,I would be hitting all the 75% off after Christmas sales and making out like a bandit.

But this time I’m avoiding the stores completely. In fact I did all my Christmas shopping online this year and avoided setting foot in stores.

Of course I love 75% off holiday markdowns but I’m taking a stand and deciding that I want a new apartment more than I want stuff.
In the long run, moving will make me happier than the temporary fun of retail therapy.

There will be a lot of times in the coming months where I’ll have to ask myself, “Do I want this item or do I want an apartment?”
I’m up to the challenge because I’m tired of repeating the same pattern and I want to see changes. 15 months ago

Allegra A.Still Keeping My Nose To The Grindstone

These past few weeks I haven’t been on 43 Things daily like I normally am. This doesn’t mean I’ve given up, it just means I’m hard at work making money so that I can cross a couple of things off of my list.
I’ll never give up until I fulfill my promise to my daughter to get us into a better, safer apartment that is free of electrical problems and drive by shootings. (I’m not kidding about the drive by shootings, this neighborhood is going downhill.)

So, even if I’m less visible, I’m still around and I’m still working on my goals and rooting for you guys as you work on yours. 20 months ago

Allegra A.Inspiration for saving

“Save a part of your income and begin now, for the man with a surplus controls circumstances and the man without a surplus is controlled by circumstances.” – Henry H Buckley 23 months ago

Allegra A.Once you get started it's not so bad..

I think the trick to successfully saving money is attitude.

I think my past failed attempts at saving didn’t work because I felt like I was punishing myself and depriving myself of all the pretty things I could buy with that money.

What seems to have changed this time is that now, when I see my bank balance go up, I feel like I’m buying independence, a warm blanket against economic cold.

I’m not punishing myself, I’m protecting myself against bad things that may happen, like suddenly losing my job.

So far, so good. I feel encouraged and now I just have to maintain forward progress. 2 years ago

Allegra A.I have to think of money as one of my collectibles

I love to collect DVD’s and video games, and books on art, but my love of movies and anime is getting in the way of my 43 T goal of moving out to a better and safer apartment.

So I’m going to make a little game of it and approach saving money a different way. I’ll start a collection of money and instead of adding a new DVD or action figure to my collection, I’ll add money to my savings account every time I get paid.

So instead of a 5 disc set of Family Guy DVD’s , I’ll have the rare and elusive collectible $40 and put it in the bank. Or think of a $20 as a limited edition collectible and leave it sitting in my account.

Becoming a money fangirl and collecting money as if it was video games sounds more fun to me than just calling it saving.
Sometimes to get through the boring and mundane things in life, we have to make a little game out of it. 2 years ago
