A New Month - New Goals

March 3rd, 2007 at 12:39 am

My goals for March:
(1) Total grocery/toiletries/pet food spending under $200.
(2) Walking 3 miles - 6 days a week. Will add $18 to savings/week
(3) At least 50% No Spend Days
(4) Implement a new way to save money every week.

Two days in and:
(1) Groceries Spent $14.27; $185.73 left to spend
(2) One no spend day (yesterday) and one spend day (today)
(3) Strategy for saving money: I'm starting with an easy one: Paying all bills online through the biller's website rather than by mail. I have done this sporadically in the past and for some I do every month, but recently I have been finding I am paying the small bills - the phone, the cell phone (a requirement for my school), the water bill, the gas bill, and another miscellanous bill here and there. On average about 6 a month - with the new rates in effect, I could easily save $2.40 a month not doing this.
