Time for some weekly encouragement that I am taking the right steps to take control of spending and debt!
What did I do this week? Just a few things, but every little bit helps!
- I used a gift card (that I’d been saving) for some random purchases that came up. I’d gotten a Target gift card recently, but didn’t blow it right away on some candles like I originally wanted to. Instead, last night I bought some things I need (packing tape, shoe inserts, sunblock) and didn’t have to spend “real money” on them!
- I put 10% into savings. I earned money from both my paycheck and house/dogsitting this week and right away, I put 10% towards my emergency fund.
- I sold some textbooks and made about $130. Now is the time to list those textbooks if you haven’t already! I would know because I recently bought my own!
How have you saved money this week? Anything goes, as long as it’s helping to keep savings growing and spending shrinking!
