  • I do this too.....I get paid monthly, and I take my cash out on payday. Anything that I have left over at the end of the month goes for me! This technique has made me be VERY frugal! That's a good thing! - by PATINTX
    Yep, that's what I do too. Using the cash makes me think harder about what I might need later in the week. - by STORMTMB
  • I really do like this idea. I do something similar by taking out the odd amount from my second job paycheck such as 333. or whatever it is. It has worked for over a year and my savings has greatly improved!!!!!!!!! - by NURSEMATE49
  • That's a good start.
    I would like to follow this. - by JAMBUTTER
