SAVING MONEY!

SAVING MONEY!

I am saving money. I am not using my credit cards. I am only using cash. My motto is: No bargain is a bargain if I can’t afford it. So..I am not eating out at any restaurants for 1 year, I am not using my credit cards, I am saving money, and losing weight. 2 of the most wonderful things I ever wanted to do! I had to discover my trigger to buy things. For me, it was emotional shopping. Just like emotional eating. I had to find another way to release pent up stress besides shopping. I had to learn to just walk away from so called bargains. Many credit cards charge 29% interest. And don’t fool yourself…Them salespeople know what they are doing! They get free things when they sell you on store credit cards. I make all my meals at home, and it taste better. My coffee is out of this world too. I use a coffee press. And, I must say it is better than Starbucks. I had to Devise a “Defeat The Debt” plan for me. Knowing my financial numbers, Expenses, Listing all my debts, and listing all my assets. It was then I saw all my Expenses. Foolish things that I don’t need. Repayment on debts. I am now saving more, and tracking my success. More on this hot topic later, and how I am saving hundreds of dollars a month!

    I have tried and tried this way. I have no credit cards at all. It hasn’t been until recently that I have overdrawn my checking account. I was totally freaked out when that happened. About destroyed my self-esteem on that one. I am finding this very hard, the saving money and paying off debts though, as my daughter is growing up. She just turned 10 and is in the “I want this and this and this” mode, but doesn’t want to do chores to earn money, etc. any suggestions?
