It’s the first of June, which means it’s time for my regularly scheduled programming about how my Year of Saving is going, etc etc.
I’m changing things up a bit this month.
Why, you ask?
Because I am tired of writing blog posts that say the same thing: it was a good month, spent more than I should though, not sure what’s in store for me in the next month but hey hopefully I’ll spend less money!
It’s getting boring. And drifting away from the whole point of this thing.
So, I want to start taking a look at my habits.
The best way of doing that is to start from the very beginning… and to take lots of notes.
For the month of June, I’m on a shopping ban. I don’t care if it’s something I’ve used up or one-in-one-out or an amazing sale or whatever. I’m banned from buying anymore stuff. The only things I’m going to spend money on in June, besides necessities like rent and groceries, will be things like dining out or late night cab rides home. Because my social life and personal safety are important to me.
I have rules in place, lists that are practically begging to be written, and a whole system set up for how I want this to work if I’m successful in June and want to extend it, but first things first. Let’s tackle June, and then I can think about how I want to move this forward.
Here goes nothing!
