Annual Salary Increase


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My payroll department will take amounts off my cheque and deposit to an employee savings account for me. This year, when I got my increase, I up'd my savings by exactly the same amount. So far, I haven't missed a penny of it - seeing as how I wasn't used to getting it in the first place.

    That's a good way to save and not miss the money. I always round of my checks to the nears dollar. But even if it is just 5 or 10 cents I go to the next dollar. At the end of the year I put the money in the savings.

    My mother did that with her IRA.

    The good thing about what you did is that in your mind you know you got a raise but you know it is being put up for safe keeping!!!
