The Diary of a Budgeter – Day 56

The only way to save

Gas prices went up 16 cents overnight! It aggravates me, to no end, when they shoot up like that! They never come down that fast! But it makes me so thankful that I haven’t had to commute in almost a year. Instead of filling up once a week, I fill up once a month, if that.

So, logic would dictate that if prices are higher, but I’m not paying them as often, I’m saving even more than before the hike. Right?

Laugh if you will, but that’s what I feel like when people buy into “the more you spend, the more you save” sales pitch.

The only way to truly save is not to spend.

A friendly reminder from your neighborhood budgeting geek!
