Fill Er Up, Please

March 19th, 2009 at 06:55 am

As I was getting gas the other day, something occured to me. I always pull into the full service place in town. The price per gallon is usually cheaper or the same as the other places in town, so why not?? But as he came out to help me and I said Fill it up please, I realized that I couldn't remember the last time I just got enough gas to get through! Before I started this journey, I was constantly getting $10 or $20 of gas...just enough to get through a couple of days. Granted, gas was way more expensive then, but I still didn't budget for it. But since I started this journey, I have filled up every time I get gas!! I know that may not seem like a big deal to some of you, but to me that is huge. That is a sign that I have gotten my finances in order. I have budgeted for gas and actually have the money to fill up, not just get by a couple of days! I am not worried each week about how I am going to get gas. It is already accounted for. And most of the time, I have money left in my gas fund that I am able to transfer to my new car fund. This is just a huge step for me. Little steps make a huge difference!

    That is wonderful news and it just makes sense to fill the tank when you go to gas up. It makes it easier for you to track MPG if you wish to do so. Plus you don't have to worry about getting gas often if you're always in the habit of just filling it up. How great you reached this point! I think it's a wonderful milestone! Smile

    that is great,less stops to the station is just less to do and less spent in those little stores;-)

    for reasons I do not understand I hate stopping to get gas so I always have filled up just so I do not have to do it often;-)
