Tried that with direct deposit into a separate savings. Uhhh yea. Money goes into savings, money is quickly depleted from checking, money is transfered from savings to checking so everyone including wally is happy.Dren said:Pay yourself first off when you receive your paycheck. When I say pay yourself, I mean put away money into a savings account that will not be touched.
I eat stuff as old as almost 2 weeks. I don't like to waste food. In fact while some people have a 5 or 10 second rule, I have a 10 minute rule. And when we hit the buffet and Bepsi puts too much as usual on her plate, I'll finish it before the busser comes around. I don't like the idea of wasting other people's money. Oh yea, Bepsi doesn't like my 10 minute rule at all. Much less at the buffet. Although, I'm civilized and mannered enough to look left and right first.

Dave, I know that on the east coast, the trees are already blossoming, but around here we sometimes get snow in June.Since the summer is here, BBQ more.
Thanks for the offer Andrew but as everyone knows, change starts with number one. I'm getting back to the point where I'm kinda ready to put a choke hold on my finances again. There's just so much that's happened in the last 7 years or so that's made me not really care. Come to think about it, I was more responsible with my money 12 years ago. Heck, at age 19, I was a home owner without anyone's help. Which reminds me, had I held on to that house, right now I could sell and put 60 big in my pocket. Real estate is where the money is. No one knows that better than my pops and even moreso my uncle who once built a 5 bedroom house cash, and recently bought a 250k house in a better neighborhood also cash. Not bad for a guy who started out in the U.S. in 1980 knowing zero English and riding a bicycle to work at Mickey Dee's huh? OK, before I go off on another tangent, that right there just made me feel real pathetic in comparison.Canrex said:everything you wrote
