Make Your Highest Priority Money Disappear

Day 113 of 180 – Trekking Up the Money Mountain

Action Tip: When you did your spending plan, did you notice that broad categories that you would like to have were missing? Was savings one of them? Did you spend all of your money and didn’t have enough left over to save?

A trick that worked for me was to make the money disappear. How? Pick a certain amount you want to save each paycheck, have that money automatically directed into a separate savings account. You don’t miss what you don’t see.

Now, you will have to adjust your spending, cut your lifestyle and/or increase your income to fit into the amount you take home.

Live below your means so you can live your dreams.
