Ok, one year I decided I needed to start saving even if it was just a little because it would be better than not saving at all. Well I was trying to figure out a way to save out of every paycheck and one day I took notice of how little was taken out for Medicare taxes so I told myself I would match this amount every paycheck and at the end of the first year I had saved $550.70 . This was money I didnt miss and I didnt have to touch(Although I took $100.00 out to get me a few new shirts:~)!
