$10 Goal

October 28th, 2008 at 08:20 pm

James and I made a decision last night. We are going to go open a savings account next payday, and start putting a minimum of $10 a week in it. So $10 a week for the rest of the year will give us $90 already. It's not a lot but it's more than we have now, which is nothing.

I think it's doable. $10 isn't that much. I'm going on a diet and planning on cutting out soda and munchies (potato chips, candy, etc) and taking that out of my weekly spending should more than cover the $10.

It seems a manageable enough goal. So for the rest of the year, it is our goal, after that it may change. Writing it down makes it real, and putting it out there makes it harder to go back on.

I'm not going to set a specific day for depositing. We plan to start this account at a different bank than our main accounts do that it's not as convenient to get the money. We'd need to make a special trip to go get it. I'll most likely do the deposits on weekends when I go grocery shopping.

Thanks for all the support since I've started here. I think that will help a lot as well.
