1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gasoline.

2. Today I am thankful for a productive Sunday. I cleaned the whole apartment and even mopped the kitchen floor — I can’t tell you the last time that happened!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was go antique shopping.

4. I will consider this week a success if I practice yoga every morning, even if for just 10 minutes.

5. I consider myself an introvert. I really enjoy being around people, but find more energy by being alone and resting. I prefer to be more in the background than the center of attention.

  • My mortgage definitely ate up my spending!

  • It’s a very wise decision to have an eagle eye on our weekly expenses. I think,at the end of each week we should calculate our total weekly expenses and analyze how to reduce our daily expenses. We can estimate a budget for the week ahead! and try to stay within it. All these savings will contribute to our monthly savings to a great extent.
