Give yourself a present
One February day, I got a phone call that would change my life. I got a call from my then girlfriend that she was pregnant. Fucking Fabulous.
One thing I started to do was sock away some money... and you don't need the impending birth of a child to spur yourself into action.
I cleaned out a gallon milk jug and put it next to where I put my EDC stuff. Every day, I put $1 in the jug. I took the toll way to and from work every day. I put what ever I spent on the tollway in the jar. I lived in an apartment and used a coin operated laundromat. Whatever was left at the end of the laundry out of the $10 roll of quarters, yep, into the jug. I cut back on some spending but put the difference in the jug.
So at the end of the 7 month run up to the end of gestation, I managed to save over $1500.
This is an easy and painless way to save. I still save $1 a day minimum. It's not much, but it's something. Someday I'll bump it up to $5 a day. Then $7.
I use checking accounts that round up to the nearest dollar and put that in savings. I don't know how many times that has been used to pay a bill.
Another thing I'll do is if I go out to eat, I'll put in the jug the amount I spent.
For the past couple months my child support has been paid out of the jug. I can't tell you what a relief it is knowing my monthly extortion is covered. My life can go to shit again and I can bottom out, but the state gets their pound of flesh to give to a back stabbing bitch so she can go on vacation.
Just a couple ideas to save up some money. Oh, number one way to save money is don't get married and then divorced. Absolute disaster...I pay 20% gross. Poof, gone! I work for free on Mondays. All the Mondays since July of 2009. That would be 499 weeks and counting, with 63 weeks to go. At the end of my sentence I will have paid out over $60,000. I would have loved to have invested that money.
I don’t know why but the first thing I thought to myself when I read the title, “Give yourself a present”, the first present I thought about giving myself that came to mind was a women that is not a cunt, hmmmmmm, where can I find one of those, I heard there’s some life in the Andromeda Galaxy, maybe I can find a women that’s not a cunt there, it’s just over 25 million light years away, I’m gonna need the Mgtow Starship to get me there.

Hey RPB, you can borrow my time machine, you just have to cross the flux capacitor with the time line delineation modulator and use it as a stargate instead of time travel!
Sorry to say I've folded time-space in every possible combination and came up empty, there's no unicorns anywhere in space and time!
Check May. I have a big ceramic bowl that my change goes in every day and I no longer spend change. I keep it in the car after each purchase and toss it in the bowl.
Great topic and suggestions for simple yet effective savings.
