No, No, They’re Still Good!

So, I have a set of shoes that I wear around the office. I only wear them in the office or the odd time I have to take garbage out the back.

Here is what they look like . . . from underneath . . .    

Yes, those are sizable holes and this is just a way to demonstrate my dedication to saving money.

I have replaced them with slightly less comfortable shoes that I already had in Wanda.

I will buy better (more breathable) shoes later, but for now, this is what I will do.

As I clearly need new shoes, even though new shoes (even El Cheapo ones) are not in the budget at this moment.

So, I will compromise, be practical yet not break the bank . . . even to the tune of $20.00.

Some may say that I am a bit extreme but this is what I have to do in order to get ahead. 

First of all keep a hold on what you spend. If you can find a way to keep a penny, or a dollar in your account you have earned it twice. 

(Once on your paycheque, and once again when you kept it.) 

So, I will buy new shoes, perhaps after next payday, but for now, I will make do with what I have. 

After all, I have some serious ground to make up in my savings, and I won’t do that by giving an inch on my savings targets.

I will not only meet but surpass 50% (of my savings target) before this year is out.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
