I have always felt it’s a good idea to save money when it’s possible. There are some things that I don’t scrimp on, though. When I was ready to look at apartments for rent in Colton recently, I made sure that I found a really nice place. I wanted it to be a newer place, and I wanted it to have some luxury amenities. I knew that taking my time would mean that I could find something really nice and at a good monthly price. When it comes to other things outside of my living space, I am a bit tight with money. It is definitely nice to be able to have money to save every month because I handle things this way.
I knew when apartment hunting that I wanted a place that would have a gym, a clubhouse, and a pool. I like to work out and I am a big fan of giving dinner parties, too. Coming at home at night to work out in a gym or take a swim in a pool right where you live saves a lot of money because there’s no need to purchase a gym membership and the fee to visit a local pool week after week.. On top of that, I spend no gas money having to travel back and forth to work out somewhere. It also saves a very sizeable amount of time, too. As for dinner parties, a club house is really nice because there’s a lot of space.
I do not drive a car. I make sure to live near where I work. This allows me to ride my bike or walk. If it’s raining out, I can simply jump on the city bus. I see no reason to spend as much as $500 to $600 per month for a new car when it’s easy to make sure that you live near the places that you need to go on a continuous basis. On some rare occasions I might take a taxi somewhere, but like I said, it really is rare for me to need to do that. All the money that I save each month goes into a retirement account.
