Got a Raise!

May 8th, 2008 at 08:22 pm

I received a raise today and will see the increase in my next's paycheck. We do not get Cost of Living raises because it is based on performance and skills.

I am trying to come up with ways to save this money and not to see this as a cost of living raise with the recent groceries and gas price increase.

    I also got a raise in February and decided to pretend I never did. I automatically put the money in savings and continue to live with the income prior to the raise. After a while saving that money will be second nature. Another suggestion is to put that money in a Roth IRA by way of direct deposit. Just my suggestions, I think that you won't miss the money if you do it starting with the first check. Smile

    I hope that you would be able to live without using your new raise money... otherwise it sounds like you would pretty close to the wire.

    I'm with NJDebbie... just put the extra money into your account and forget about it.
