On Friday morning I bought my last pack of cigarettes and my last monster energy drink. I brought my lunch to work and ate dinner at home.
Psst…If this is your first time at my blog please read this post first.
I saved $20 compared to eating out and made another payment to my credit card.
On Friday I also make some changes in my stock portfolio and will update my holdings soon.
Why did I buy cigarettes again?
Because I wanted to. I wanted to buy my last pack and last drink.
With the full commitment that it will be my last one. Not because I bought it in a moment of frustration and weakness like I did the day before.
This morning I drank my coffee and did not buy cigarettes. I brought my lunch to work. I’m planning on eating dinner at home.
Today’s savings adds up to $30.
I think its incredible to calculate that even though I have not been perfect with my new spending goals I have still saved an estimated $100 in five days.
With a few simple changes in my daily spending habits. I haven’t missed out on anything and still enjoyed myself this week. I don’t feel like I am neglecting myself at all. I have eaten healthier and cheaper food.
It goes to show how much I was wasting on these small purchases.
It never felt like I was spending a lot of money because it is typically small charges.
