I'm keeping track of what I DIDN'T spend...

Didn't stop at JITB or McD's on the way home?
emoticon ~ $4 in the "Saved" pot!

Didn't buy at the bakery when out shopping?
emoticon ~ $6 in the "Saved" pot!!

Didn't order pizza - cooked wisely at home?
emoticon ~ $15 in the "Saved" pot!!!

Even if I can't put the cash amount in a real-world savings account, it WILL show me what I'm saving by working to live healthier. emoticon

SparkPeople just started a sister website about budgeting and other financial topics called sparksavings.com ~ Have you checked it out?

Here's a link to their "Tips" page:
www.sparksavings.com/sparksavings/sa
vi
ngs_tips.asp


I started two goals, one for my Cruise with Kaile in Spring 2012, and an ongoing fund for trips to Colorado to see my newly-transferred DD & SIL.

I like one of their basic philosophies: "Count what you DON'T spend." This will give me extra motivation to pass up fast food, and those inevitable "extras" that end up in the shopping cart! I have a lot of experience dealing with financial matters, and our budget, bills, investments and credit are on target for now, but I'm looking forward to learning more about what this new site offers.

I hope you'll check it out too. emoticon
