How do you do this? Does it work or do you always break into savings?
by putting it into a different account that i don't have ready access to.
I've tried not spending cash in my current account but it goes by the end of the month.
It needn't be a particularly hard to get account, just one that you can't get at day to day.
Maybe have a slush fund in another bank and keep the card away from your wallet.
Turning my phone off helped, and now I don't have a phone because my contract ran out, so I'm not being bugged to go out all the time. Having a really good reason to save helps.
I set up a separate savings account - one without the rubbish interest thing as that means you have to pay to keep it open.
I had to due to the fact that every month I keep getting disgustingly high bank charges, this month it's £135 WTF?
So to stop the painful OD charges continuing I have moved to a separate savings account
just remind yourself how fuck everyone is and how u dont need crap its just going to weigh you down. Also set a value you will save each month and feel like u'll never escape loser dom if you dont.
of spending less money than i earn
I'm going to get better though. I'm determind now.
If you live in London, look into Focus Groups. Easy money for just having an opinion.
I know how much I want to have each week to live off, so after the rent's paid and the money for bills has been put aside I keep that amount in the account and put the difference into a different one.
