Do 1 Thing and Set Aside the Cash

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time to Do 1 Thing.

Today, my 1 Thing is the same as my Weekly Goal: to figure out what I should do with my discretionary cash over the next two months. How much should I spend on Christmas and apartment stuff, how much should I put towards refilling my $3,000 checking account buffer, etc.

It’s basically making a list of all the things I think I might need to buy in December and January, comparing that to my cashflow and savings goals, and figuring out which of those items will stay on the to-buy list.

(This is a terrible tedious task.)

What about you?
