Pay Yourself First

This Sparked Me!

Every time your paycheck comes in - treat it like it was a business income and pay yourself (the main employee) first. It doesn't have to be a large amount but you will be surprised how it adds up over the year and how you never really miss it.

    I like this idea - even $5.00 a week adds up to $250.00 a year. I know I can find something to do with $250.00 at the end of the year and I really won't miss the $5.00 each week. Thanks! emoticon
