I believe I am going to save money. Its nice to not worry about it, when you have it saved up. I’m trying to piece together what it will take to save extra cash, without having any real impact on me. For one, I will cut out going to the Bunny Ranch LOL I will also no longer purchase soda anymore – it has no benefits, and costs money. Only exception to this, is RockStar or NOS when doing an overnighter.
MS Money sucks it hardcore. I spent a good two hours to try to customize it to my income flow, and it’s dumb like “OMG NO MONEYZ!!1” and it upselling its MSN Premium crap too. I think I’ll try Quicken. Good thing I didnt spend money on it, and just get it from the internet for free. 😉
Anyhow, I need to add more non-linear features to how I manage time and money. I currently just run variable figures in my head, and it doesn’t help. I think I’ll start making use of AOL® Calendar and BillPay more than I do now.
My way to save money:
– Less public outings (ie, Bunny Ranch)
– Stop going to eBay so much, isnt always cheaper
– Conserve more when driving when gas exceeds $3.00 a gallon.
– Turn off computer when not in use
We’ll see how this goes. In fact I’ll rant on gas prices, next.
