VELVET & DARK TEXTURES











 I pray you're having a blessed week.  This look was a total shop my closet in honor of the $500 challenge.  Basically every time I get creative and save $500 I will deposit it into a short tem account. I will continue doing this for a year to see how much I can accumulate.  If you have not read the post on the $500 challenge then you can read it here.  There are a few other ways that I have been saving.

1.  I reviewed my cell phone charges and found that I was over paying each month in fees for services I was not even using.

2.  I have two vehicles that I own so instead of driving both throughout the week. I drive one and the other for traveling longer distances.  I have a luxury car so maintenance fees can range anywhere from a thousand to a few thousand dollars depending on the service . My non-luxury car I spend so much less in maintenance fees and fuel which saves me a ton of money.

3.  When I receive my dividend checks off my stocks or I sell shares I normally take some of it and purchase a new expensive item.  I haven't spent any of it lately.

4. I normally take all my loose change at the end of the day and put away and once a year I deposit it all into my short term account. However, I have taken it a step further and any dollar bills I have left in my wallet at the end of the day I stash away as well.

 Well I just wanted to share a few additional ways that I'm saving.  If you have any creative ways that you're saving then please share.  I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed weekend and thank you so much for reading!

  3. Tiffany, You have a good saving culture and mentality. I truly love that in you and thanks for sharing. I save but not most times before i even think of removing a share to save, something comes up. Although i plan saving for a car before the end of 2016 but seems i have derailed a bit, but i am glad because i saved some to an extent. Hope i finally achieve it.

  7. That velvet blazer is beautiful! :) Great ideas for saving more money too! When I get extra money I'm trying to be better at saving it instead of spending it.

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend :)
