The vacation week is almost over, and the $1 cushion is long gone. It's saving time again!

I've been saving cash through my payroll deductions as well. This Saturday we go away on vacation, and I'll have a little $ to take with me. All the bills will be paid during my summer break.

I use an app called Qapital. It rounds up any purchase I make with my debit card and socks that away in a savings account. It also puts a dollar in savings every time my tracker reports that I exercised for at least 30 minutes in a session. And finally, I'm doing the 52 week savings challenge, where you start with saving $1 the first week, $2 the second week, $3 the third week, etc. I'm on week 10 of that challenge.

1 of the biggest lessons I ever learnt in life was from 1 of my first bosses, who said alwas live within your means.
The higher a persons income, then the higher the rate of expenditure, from debt, purchases and commitments.
I have lived this all my life.
Although I have had a modest income, it has sufficed to service a family of 4 throughout my working life.
Cheers Richard

Everyone needs to learn how to live within their means, and to keep a cushion for those days when more is needed.
Emergencies happen when you least expect them!

Here in the US, the struggle over health care is deeply political. D. Trump wants to eliminate policies created by B. Obama, or at least get credit for it by calling it TrumpCare.
How very petty.

health-care costs are always a worry
it is something that can be increasingly needed as people get older
there are over 2000 policies in Australia to add to the confusion

Yes I do! I live in the US, and may be facing a major increase in my health care costs.
I'm glad that I have a cushion, and wish that it was bigger.

Hello Friends, Do you know that it is very important to have an emergency cushion for all those unexpected things that might come up? I think that we are all able to put $i.00 away in the cushion a day right? Well let's do that! Did you put your $1.00 away today? emoticon
