Secrets of Success

Left-Overs On Payday



I get paid by direct deposit and on payday I check my account online. Looking at the balance, I transfer any money left over from the previous payday into a savings account; even if it is only $20.00. You will be surprised at how fast this can add up. my savings account is actually a tax-free account where I can stash up to $5000 without paying taxes on it. Nice! emoticon
