The 1 thing that I do want to mention, is this money saver that I'm going to do immediately! I will be $1378 richer by the end of 2014! :) This is news to my ears, because at the end of the year, I am always broke ass!! With Christmas gift buying and celebrating in all the holiday cheer, there's never any money left for any extras! I read this article on The Broke Ass Bride about 14 ways to save money this year! It's very practical and really puts things realistically into perspective. Every week of the year you put the amount of what week of the year it is. Week 1 you put $1 in, Week 2 = $2, Week 3 = $3, and so on all the way until 52 weeks. Totaling $1378 by the last week of the year. I am excited to do this, because it's hard to put yourself on a structured money saving plan.( well for me anyways)
Here's a helpful reminder to look at and help reach your goal!
Another money saver that I do is when I'm in the car and going to McDonald's or some other fast food joint, and there's couple dollars change I put it on the side and save it for things like parking money or for those rare occasions that I do valet and need some tip money. It had come in handy on more than 1 occasion this past year, and boy have I been grateful for those few extra bucks.
For my first parting shot of the year, I wanted to share a rather hard to see shot but one that I find symbolic in hopes to a great year!
This was my drinking cup on New Years ever, after the big bang at midnight when I went to grab my cup I was surprised to see that I had pieces of firecrackers in my cup! For those of you that don't know, in Hawaii for New Years there are a lot of customs and traditions that we partake in. One being popping firecrackers to ward off evil for the new year. Being the big traditionalist that I am, you can see why I am excited to have firecrackers land in my celebratory drink!
Cheers to 2014!!
It's going to be a great year!
