Doing better

October 17th, 2006 at 07:34 am

On my paycheck last week, my overtime was on it! That was about $350 extra, which gave me enough money to pay off one debt in full. Now I can focus on the others!

I've been working on correcting small behaviors that are hurting me financially. Every day I used to stop at the gas station to get a cup of coffee. (Which I suppose is better than stopping at Starbucks, like I used to!)

$1.09 x 5 (days per week) = $5.45

$5.45 x 4 (weeks per month) = $21.80

I bought a 36-count box of Folger's coffee-in-a-bag for $6.85 and a bottle of peppermint mocha creamer for $1.99, which should last me all month.

$6.85 + $1.99 = $8.84

This is a total monthly savings of $12.96

I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but $12.96 x 12 = 155.52 (provided I stick with it!)

    Little things like that really add up, good for you!

    I'm going to start doing some of these small behaviour changes also. My first one should save me 10 a month. But saving 10 for one small change is going to add up. Keep it up!
