To All My Money Saving Friends....

June 1st, 2007 at 08:52 am

I have been reading all of your blogs for about 6 months now, and thought it time to start my own.

Not only is it fun (and maybe a bit narccistic) to have your own blog, but it certainly helps you keep your financial goals if you put them out there for everyone to see.

I am 25 years old, work as a commercial loan officer at a community bank in Northern California, and have a seriosu girlfriend who lives in San Francisco and works at Google.

I went through college spending money left and right and quuicly racked up about $8,000 in credit card debt. I have cut that down to about $2,500 since graduation and am trying eliminate it all by 2008.

I spend 75% of my time watching my pennies and trying to do my best to save all I can so I can not feel guilty when I travel to San Francisco and go to nice dinners and Giants games.

This is my journey..........Happy Saving, everyone!

    75% very carefully planned and considered budgeting; 25% relaxed leeway. Sounds good. There will be times when that balance can change, of course, but you just have to keep the good management habit. Welcome. Smile
