Omg. Ladies I need a better way to start saving. Once I have abit saved then I end up spending it on something I need or my kids or something that just gonna sit in my closet. I normally try and take $100 out my check every pay period & save but lately that hasn't been workin

I set up a seperate checking account for my Christmas savings and I do not have a debit card to that account. I have to go to the bank to get money to use. That helps me a lot with not spending what I have saved until I am going to use it.

I do something very similar to Heather.  The account I use to save money does NOT have a debit card attached to it!!! 

I sell on ebay to save money!!!  I just paid for a trip to disney for my family of 5 for 7 nights and 8 days by selling our clutter on EBAY!!!!  We leave in 9 DAYS!!!!!   WOOT

I have continued to sell and add to the save fund all the time!
