Save a $1,000 Day 11: Man the Gates!

7.COLOR_Cleese_as_Frenchman_610_407shar_s_c1In my book, Building Your Financial Fortress in 52 Days (available on Amazon. Just sayin’), I wrote about a time where Nehemiah was building the wall and posted guards at every gate to shore up any weak spots from attack.

You’re going to apply the same principle to your quest to save this month. First, you need to identify your weak spots. Does driving by that Starbucks make you want to buy a Latté? If so, change your route so you’re not tempted. Are clothing stores your stumbling block? Fight the urge to go inside. Does eBay make you spend like there’s no tomorrow? Remove it from your bookmarks.

Action Step

Take a moment before you close this page to think about what your weakness is. Brainstorm ways to post guards at your flimsy gates.

Potential Monthly Savings: $50 – $200
