Motivation: Part 1

How 12 months of savings adds up!
Saving $50/month = $600
Saving $100/month = $1,200
Saving $200/month = $2,400
Saving $250/month = $3,000
Saving $300/month = $3,600
Saving $400/month = $4,800
Saving $500/month = $6,000
Saving $600/month = $7,200
Saving $750/month = $9,000
Saving $1,000/month = $12,000

I didn’t add up all the posibilities of savings, but sometimes it helps to just take a look at those posibilities.

Saying “No” is becoming easier and easier. Prioritize. If people drop off your friends list, etc because you are committing to better yourself, then so be it. Get rid of the negative, non-supportive folks anyway. With that, I’ve decided to not be tempted to take off on trips that are not necessary. This is a three day weekend and so instead of “having fun” and posting all the “fun” on Facebook, I’m laying low. I didn’t really get the concept of spending here and there and then all of the sudden someone wants to do something and I’d struggle to afford the possibility. Also, just because I have money doesn’t mean that I have to spend it. Repeat that last sentence!
This is the year to save and not feed needs with material things. January is going rather slow because 1) it’s after the holidays 2) weather doesn’t make me want to go outside sometimes 3) re-evaluating takes some energy. I want to come out of this year on top!
