Some like to focus on long term goals. I enjoy the quick reward of short term goals from time to time.
Which is why I made a simple decision that would save me at least $500 a year. I removed my acrylic nails.
My nail issues go back. Way back. In high school I got a job just so that I could keep my nails up each week. Over the years I’ve gone back and forth, alternating between doing my own manicures and paying others to. Somehow I got back into the paying others flow in November, just before vacation and have been factoring it into my budget ever since. I have never been able to grow long nails and have always despised my short tips. Vitamins, treatments, nail hardeners.. you name it I’ve done it in attempt to strengthen my natural nails.
The goal was to eventually begin doing my own acrylic nails but it’s something I never got around to and felt that my time could be best spent on things like finishing my masters degree or continuing to bring you great (I hope you think it’s great) content.
While $25 bi-weekly seems insignificant, thats $50 per month that could go towards paying off debt. So on March 1st I decided to kick the month off right and removed my nails. I’m kicking my financial goals up a notch by squeezing an unnecessary item out of my budget.
I’d like to introduce to you the #MyFabIsLess challenge. Ask yourself, what can you squeeze out of your budget that will enable you to accomplish you financial goals quicker?
