This is the last week of August and right before the Labor Day Holiday. I spent the majority of my life up in the DMV (D.C. – Maryland – Virginia) and being there taught me one thing – Never wear white after Labor Day. So, I made a conscious decision to make sure and wear my white denim jeans, because I did not want to be caught by the rule of not wearing white after Labor Day. Now Really!!!
I guess you would answer this question by giving me your name. You would probably follow by telling me where you are from, probably in what order you fall in the siblings line up. But how does that make you so unique from the next person standing or sitting near you.
Many years ago, I was really good at saving. Now I hope my kids do not think I am blaming them, but once my precious ones came along, saving become much harder to do. I used to be one who could not save a dime, maybe not a dime, but not a dollar. (Not kidding). I was horrible.
I decided that I wanted to become a good contributor to my savings. I came up with an idea where I would allow me to trick myself into saving. I would go to bank every week or every other and get $20 worth of quarters or $20 worth of $2.00 bills. That method worked so well for me that after I had saved about $800 on just quarters and $2.00 bills I moved to Florida, and I still today follow that trick with saving.
