Save Like Squirrels!
September 17, 2009 at 12:49 pm 2
It's official...the weather is getting cooler, the evenings are shorter, and it is time to start saving. After having fun all summer long and living a carefree existence it is time to buckle down and save up. First step - set up an appointment with a banker and come up with a plan for RRSP savings. Having been a student for so long I have always been able to use my tuition to provide me with a substantial tax return. Now, the tuition credits have all been used up and I need alternative ways to getting a good tax return and saving my money. I love saving money and watching it grow. I find it so rewarding and I feel like I'm making some very good choices in my life. Onwards and upwards!

I Have a Confession

I have a confession. I have this slightly obsessive habit. It’s not bad for me, actually it makes me feel quite happy, but it’s still a little obsessive. I check my bank balance online everyday. Not that it’s that exciting – trust me, I’d notice if I found an extra $10 in my account, but it just makes me happy. I feel like life is trucking along like it’s supposed to, and I’m always upward bound. It’s just a simple thing that makes me smile.

Down to Zero

Last year I had some major changes in my life. One of the most important was getting out of debt. I remember when I received my tax return...... and lo and behold I took all of it and put it onto my line of credit, which suddenly was down to ZERO! It had taken me one year to turn this $-9,000 animal into a ZERO, but it finally happened. I was so thrilled with myself. I kept on checking my online balance and seeing it at ZERO. I couldn't wait to call my friend and tell her that finally, I was down to ZERO!
