Saved 3k this month!
How? Overtime and budgeting! Yes!
I went out today to do errands even though I had extra money to spend, I didn't want to spend any of it so I went straight home after doing errands.
No coffee. No snacks. No little purchase. 😛
Way to go!! How long did it take you to progress to this awesome maintenance state? :) I've been working at my own path towards minimalism for about a year and a half now, so my recreational purchasing trips have dropped drastically. But when it comes to budgeting, I'm just starting out. Once I get on top of my expenses and have month-old money, I want to put any overtime I get into long-term goals like debt reduction.Reply
Hi Forest Green Guitar (09d39a7ed921) , only one month to save up 3k. This includes regular spending, we actually gave monetary gifts to people and charities, too. We don't have any debt except our home. So that really helps with cash flow. I think once you get a buffer, you start seeing more progress with your savings.Reply
