This Sparked Me!

i have been paying on a student loan, and had been deferred for medical reasons for quite awhile, recently i decided just to jump in and start paying it, and i have been keeping a money log of all the unnecessary spending, so far from 2/24, i have spent nearly 300 on eating out, renting movies, coffee, newspapers and other needless items
so next month, i am paying the equivilent of what i spent needlessly on my loan!!!

    good idea! I have student loans that have been on deferment too, guess I should save the money in a jar that I would spend going out. One thing is you still need to make sure you are allowing yourself some entertainment. Instead of having a television with cable or even a tv box, we use the can get all sorts of movies and programs from the internet... emoticon
