some success!

sick of reading bullshit tips on how to save money? I think I finally figured
out how to outsmart myself!

I had a couple of hundred bucks since I had just sold my 2 old iPhones to my cubicle mate at work. CASH is the key! I mapped out how much money I needed to have in my checking account for my automatic bill pay bills - AND WITHDREW EVERYTHING ELSE. yep, a cash budget for our weekly expenses (groceries, gas, etc) and put the rest in a cash envelope (tucked away in my stuff).

Holding and seeing the cash in my savings envelope is really good. And with a realistic budget I don’t need to tap into my savings stash at all.

we now have a good grand in our savings envelope :)

so check this out - my new way to have fun on $0 (yes FREE!) is to spend a little effort in winning concert tickets. totally worked for the Coastline Festival in Tampa a couple of weeks ago :)

so I saw The Neighbourhood, Two Door Cinema Club and didn’t even pay for parking. other groups were there too but I missed them as I was waiting in line for food: Matt & Kim and some others. we left before Passion Pit, I’m not into them.

OMG - here we go again!

So last week was fun, “tight” finances is putting it lightly. I have to figure out how to save some dang money and not spend every dime i have in the bank each paycheck. 

Upon further introspection, i seem to enjoy this state of living or else I wouldn’t be doing it!! What am getting out of this?

I even tried to stashing away some cash recently… but my jackhole husband helped himself to it. “Pissed” doesn’t even come close to my reaction to that move. 

I’m open to any suggestions Universe, Tumbr, etc.

The M.I.N.I. Guide to Black Friday

moneyisnotimportant:

Don’t participate.

It’s a hype tactic used by stores to get you in and make you spend more than you normally would. You’ll buy things you’d never purchase on a regular day simply because “you couldn’t pass up such a great deal!”

There’s a reason that 50” flat screen is only $250—it’s a piece of crap.

So there you go. Short and sweet. Enjoy those extra precious hours of sleep!

YEP!
