  2. Joan,
    I used to work with a lady who always paid for her car in cash. No car payments. She saved money each month that amounted to a car payment and when it was time to buy a new car, the money was in the bank. Can you imagine no car payment ever? There are ways to help ourselves if we have the discipline to do it.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Dear Linda,
      Thanks for writing. That lady you used to work with you who saved money each month that amounted to a car payment was wise and money savvy. That’s great that she was able to discipline herself to do that. What a gift she gave to herself!
      You’re welcome for my sharing. Do something fun for you!

  3. My husband and I did this for a year and we each had a good bit of money for whatever we wanted. I chose a writer’s conference. 🙂 I’m going to send your link to my 28 year old daughter. She needs to start this now!

    1. Dear Jess,
      I am very proud of you and your husband for paying yourself first. It was a good feeling to have a good bit of money for whatever you wanted, wasn’t it? Thanks for sharing my link with your daughter. I hope it will empower her to see possibilities that she has never even thought of before.

      Do something good for you today!

  4. Joan-
    Thanks for another great post! I look forward to your insight as I begin each new week:)! You inspired me to save a little extra this month. Have a blessed day!

    1. Dear Brenda,
      You’re very welcome. It’s my pleasure. It’s fun for me to post articles and interact with you on my blog. I’m glad my words inspired you to save a little extra this month. The trick is not saying you have to use it for however long you determine. If you only use the amount that of interest you earn on the money, it’ll amount up. Thanks for writing.
      Do something good for you today!
      Never Give Up!
