[M]Y NEW GOAL for this month is to save money, which, as it turns out, will help me get closer to one of my older goals.
I have put about three nanoseconds of thought into this, and still come up with a non-financial way I’ll benefit from a month to save.
I think I might be a little more trim and healthy if I save for a month.
If I make a conscious effort to save money, I won’t be as tempted to stray from my diet.
I shouldn’t say diet if I want it to stick.
I guess it’s a lifestyle change.
Despite the fact I know how important it is for me to stay within a certain range so I can move easier, the struggle with weight has been part of my life for a while.
I guess the urge to save has also been a part of my life for years.
Since 1998, when I started a savings account, I’ve been a pretty good saver.
I think it’s important, because I never know when life will hand me a basket of lemons.
However, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve also been an impulse buyer on occasion.
Sometimes, I am a little less wise with money than I should be when the impulse to purchase hits.
It’s hit a lot this year, though not all on impulse, and it’s time to save again.
There are still goals I haven’t met, goals I’ll move closer to with a month to save.
Aside from those, it’s always good to be able to make lemonade when life hands out lemons.
