Resisted temptation and added $70 to savings

May 17th, 2008 at 05:27 pm

There are two special purchases at Aldi that I've been itching to buy--a paper cutter for $20 and a metal detector for $50.

I decided today that if I could dig up the money to pay for them somehow, then I could just as well afford to move the money into savings instead. I've already spent quite a bit this spring, and our emergency account balances are low.

Still, I always find it hard to put money aside for vague reasons like "emergencies." Maybe playing mind games with myself like this is the only way to get it done.

    WTG!! It's pretty much like what I am trying to do when I go to work [at Cracker Barrel]. I work on tampering the urge to buy STUFF.....stuff I simply do not need.

    I think it's a really good idea to move the money into savings. I am almost tempted to carry around a small spiral notebook in my apron pocket, and anytime I feel the urge to get something, I write it down in my little notebook - item and price. If I am able to come up with the money to buy, I am able to also sock it away.

    Thanks! And keep up the great work. Smile
