CashCrate Savings Plan

I'll be blunt about this.  *deep breath*  I can't save money.  Really, I can't.  I tried once and my debit card burnt a hole in my purse.  It was a nice purse too.

Well, I just had a $1500 car repair... Yeah both the mechanic and hubby said it was needed.  Something about keeping the left side of the car attached to the right.  I don't know.  Mechanic car stuff.

Anyway I figure I might try again to save something.

I am a big believer in 'out of sight out of mind'.  Case in point.  I pulled $10 out of my savings account to place in my Dwolla account that I have tied to my CashCrate payments with the hopes of the out of sight out of mind mentality. Logged in and *BOOM* a January 1st payout from CashCrate!

I had completely forgot about that payment.  I am happy to announce it has been sitting in there + $10 for about a week now.  Annnnnnd I just made the minimum payout for this month.

*Happy dance*

Thanks CashCrate
