Stopping Payments

February 21st, 2007 at 11:18 am

I finally went through my statments and found a payment for 9.99 that was being taken out for something I thought I cancelled a long time ago. That is over $100 dollars that I spent on something that I never used. It is esay to forget those things.

Low Spending day- All I spent yesterday was $5 for parking at school.

Dollar Box

February 20th, 2007 at 12:34 pm

Here how it works: I have been putting my dollar bills into an old wine box whenever I got home. I never counted them until today. I figured that it would be better if I didn't. Since I am on this new journal I counted it today and will be updating the count every week.

Dollar Box Count


Now that I have this amount I will be transferring it to a money market fund.

Starting to Save

February 20th, 2007 at 11:23 am

Today I started this blog to help me in my savings for an engagment ring for my girlfriend. This has been a long time coming and my lack of willpower in saving has been a problem.

However if I make it known to the world then my mission might be easier. So today I want to let people know where I am and update everyone weekly to let them know how far along I am.

Wish me luck.
