Why, Savvy Saver, of course!
I know…corny joke 🙂
Anyways, even though Blogger ate her first post with the entries for the Carnival of Personal Finance, she managed to put it all together for our reading enjoyment.
I always enjoy the posts that make me think a little, and I found one at Money and Values that asked, Save for Tomorrow or Live for Today?
Right now I am so focused on reducing debt that it scares me sometimes. I worry that with paying so much off and cutting so many corners that maybe we aren’t living for today. That’s where my husband comes in and keeps me in check so I am thankful for that.
But I know when the debt is gone, I want to start saving. If we put into savings what we are now putting into paying our debt – we would have a substantial amount for retirement. But do we want to keep a little bit back so we can live a little now instead of waiting for the future? Then, if you ask that question you need to ask how much you need to live a little now? Is it really the money that helps you live for today?
See what I mean – it makes you think. 🙂
