As I mentioned in my reflection on two months of minimalism, trying to save $25K in one year is tough, especially if you don’t start finding ways to save money immediately. Right now, I have just 10 months left and I’ve saved a meager $271.94 which is really amazing if you ignore the fact that I have $24,728 left to save.
So this month, I’ll be looking at all of our recurring payments and exploring whether there’s a way to save money on each one. When I pulled together the list, it seemed a bit daunting:
- Washington Gas
- Fairfax Water
- Cell Phones
- Dominion (Electricity)
I guess I can look at this list not just as the long list of people taking my money, but as a lot of opportunities to save it.
