Week 4: 1, 2, 3, 4…
This week, we’re counting to four. Four more dollars are going into my 52 Weeks sub-savings account, for a grand total of ten bucks.
HOW I STASHED THE CASH
I have a nasty habit I need to break. It’s bad in two ways: 1. Unhealthy. 2. Expensive. What is this evil? McDonald’s Egg McMuffins. Delicious? Yes. Convenient? Very. Nutritious? No. Expensive? $3.79, which adds up when it’s a twice a week habit.
To curb this indiscretion, I purchased two four-packs of frozen breakfast sandwiches (Jimmy Dean Delights) for a total of $9.58. That comes out to about $1.20 per sandwich. A difference of $2.59 from the price of an Egg McMuffin, saving me $5.18 per week! And I’m not sacrificing taste or convenience. These Delight breakfast sandwiches take about two minutes to cook in the microwave and they’re delicious!
FINAL THOUGHTS ON WEEK 4
Even though it doesn’t seem like I’m saving an astronomical amount of money, I know that I’m building the foundation for savings down the road. It’s a good feeling and I hope you’re experiencing it too!
