Okay, so this weekend was not payday, but still I did something which will impact my payday (this coming Sunday).
I decided to enact a different kind of savings, a kind that I don’t plan on doing so aggressively, yet will do more on a decidedly smaller, trickling scale.
I bought a considerable amount of books for my Homestead Archives. I decided that this payday would be invested in the books that I will need when getting my Homestead up and running.
I bought about ¾ of the amount that I usually put into savings, and in fact what I put into savings on a bad payday.
Again, this is not to be done all the time, but at least this one time I decided to considerably expand the knowledge that I will have invested in.
The tools and supplies can be gathered or implemented, but it is the knowledge that is the most important thing . . . knowing what to do what those scavenged tools and supplies.
So, I will have easily doubled the amount of books that I have in my Homestead Archives, or as I have previously called it “When You Need To Know It But Can’t Google It” archives.
I will move forward starting next payday (as in the one on the 7th) with my savings plan, but this payday was for investing in knowledge.
Some may call it crazy, but I call it necessary.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
