A lot of people have an issue with saving money. Here are a few tips: 1. Don’t buy what you don’t need. 2. See how much is in your bank account and set up a spending budget. 3. If you don’t have self control with money and you know you don’t have extra money to spend, stay in the house and DO NOT go to Applebees with your friends. Last but not least: 4. Don’t eat your money. A lot of times, we don’t even think about it but when we stop at fast food places to grab a quick meal or buy snacks, we are eating our money. Those dollars will add up and you have nothing to show for it. Try packing a lunch before you leave home. Have fun saving!!
So I was in my poetry class tonight, and my fellow blogger, Cameron Braun, wrote a poem about money. I really liked the poem, by the way, Cameron, even if it was a little like a riddle. Anyway, it was interesting because it described something that I see every day. In his poem, Cameron was describing a one dollar bill. I couldn’t tell you what exactly the one dollar bill looks like except that it has good old George Washington’s face on it. Oh, and the ones of course. Many, many ones are part of the one dollar bill. It just made me think of all these things that I see or do every day, but that I never take time to appreciate. For instance, I’m not sure which shoe I put on first when I start my day. I know that not many people do, but it’s something so engrained in us, that we do it mechanically. I just think it’s funny how these little things become almost imperceptible in our lives. What do you think? What are somethings that you do every day, but maybe don’t notice?
Valentine’s Day was two days ago, and for me, it was just another Monday. Whether or not I have or had a valentine, I feel like it is just an overrated holiday. It is a day for people to overly spend their money on hallmark cards, expensive flowers and heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates. I feel like there shouldn’t be one day to express your love for someone; it is something that should be done every day. To get flowers on Valentine’s Day is one thing, but getting flowers as a surprise on any given day of the week is the most amazing feeling. I believe that is the best way to show love. I also think that spending that much money is more about greediness or showing high maintenance people at their worst. Love comes from the heart, not the money in your pocket. Love is a great thing — spread it every day.
