Pay Me


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Set aside a small amount money every time you get paid. Do not spend the money. Out of sight, out of mind. Pretend it does not exist, at least for the moment.

I set aside $25 dollars every pay check. The money is going toward new clothes after I lose 50 pounds.

    I save $2.00 a day that I would have normally spent on junk food or somthing else. I just stick it in the piggy bank instead of the candy machine.

    I do the same thing, only I really did forget about it! I have a separate savings account not connected to my checking but I do have 20 bucks directly deposited every week. I'm saving for an awesome vacation for when I reach my goal weight and by the way things are shaping up I'm gonna have a GREAT vacation!!

    That is such a GREAT idea!! What a great motivation to lose weight. A shopping trip that is not going to put your bank account in the red buying new things that fit!! Way to go to all of you that do this!!

    I do the same thing to reward myself for quitting smoking!! I put away 40.00 a week!!!As time goes by the benefits of not smoking just multiply.
