Happy 20-20! I am pumped about this new year. Partially because I took way too much time off last year (from the blog) to really think about my time, my efforts and what I want to do and what kind of impression I want to leave on this little blue-green planet and how much more money I wanted to make!!! Hello!
Truth be told, in order to make more money you first have to begin saving more money. Listen, if you spend every extra dollar you earn, it would start to feel like you’re not earning any extra money. Why? Because you’re not seeing it. There’s no proof it was ever in your hands at one point. Oh, yeah, you may have paid off a bill or two. But bills gotta get paid regardless. So if your 9 to 5 isn’t cutting it in the bill paying department, we gotta to get you a new 9 to 5.
But, yes. Saving should be one of the first commitments you make to yourself this new year. And if you’re already saving, save a little more. And make that a commitment every new year. Each new year save an extra $25 a month. Is $25 extra too much to pull? Okay, fine. Then add an extra $5 or $10 to what you’re already saving. Think of it as money you’ll have later versus money you’ll never have again because you spent it on something stupid or you Postmated when you could have easily cooked yourself a meal.
This year, let’s start off when either saving or saving more. We’ll get to spending less later. I promise.
