    I do the same thing. Automatic payments for bills/mortgage and withdrawals for work 401k and my own Roth IRA.

    Also, I use mint.com for budgeting, tracking spending across checking, credit card, and other accounts. Put the app on your phone/tablet and you are good to go.

    The thing when you're young is most young people have no discipline with money. Myself included. So it's pretty easy for the spending to snowball. What works for me is to never have it in the first place - I have a whole bunch of direct deposits set up, most of my income goes out the second it comes in, to student loans, RRSP's, my dad who helped finance my move when I finished school, my tfsa, and obviously rent. I pretty much treat it like I make way less money than I actually do. I don't see any reason to change that either. As my income goes up I just raise the amounts that get paid out - rent goes up an extra 550 next month, my rrspcontribution goes up, etc. it's pretty easy to resist temptation when you don't have the option to succumb.

    Yeah this is exactly what i do. I never have to make a manual contribution, and the money goes out on payday so i never see it.

    I'll probably just do the same thing as you when i finish uni; keep my discretional spending the same by upping my savings/student loan paybacks.

    It's not like i'm living hard or anything. On the other hand, i'm only supporting myself. I can imagine saving would be a bitch when you have a family to support.

    lol if you've ever taken a cent from your parents since you turned 15 or 16, aside from the occasional dinner out, and even bigger lol if you have ever carried any debt in your life (aside from a mortgage if you're that old)

    I don't know why, but I have been absolutely fucking in love with boots w/white vibram wedge/morflex soles for almost a year now, and do not have any. Fingers crossed I can find someone to re-sole my trickers...ugh, it makes no sense

    Also, these people seem to be stalking me. They've stopped me three times in the past few months. If it hits five, I can get a restraining order, right?

    Glad I never really got into that Japanese repro look. The sizing on the shirts is just retarded. A 1.5-inch jump in shoulder width from one tagged size to the next? What sort of wonky shit is that?
