I'm a cash girl!

There is something very psychological about holding cash in your hand. I know that there really is no difference between using my debit card to pay and cash besides the physical element but when I hold cash in my hand I WANT TO KEEP IT! I watch it closer and I like to try and still have some left at the end of the month. When I just use my debit card I typically will use up my entire budget and occasionally go a few dollars over. With cash I can’t go over because I’d have no money ; ) and I often have more left at the end of the month because I don’t want to be left without any money. Plus what ever I don’t spend I get to spend however I like (that’s the deal my husband and I have) Currently I am saving up my left over grocery budget money to eventually buy a Shark steam mop: )

What are you trying to save up for?

Make sure you wait for a 30% off coupon from Kohl's. I only paid $84 for my steam mop. You will love it! :)

Nice! Costco just recently had a coupon for them too but I didn't have enough saved. I'm hoping soon though. My tile can't waite, or maybe its me ; )
