I am so horrible at saving money. You would think working for a bank for over a year I would be great at it but I’m not. I’m terrible. So terrible. Eddie and I each have a tax-free savings account (TFSA) that we opened about a year ago, a few months after I started working for the bank. So far we each have about 500 saved up. I guess $1000 between us in one year is not bad if you look at it one way.
We also saved about $300 through something called bank the rest where your debit purchases are rounded up to the nearest dollar and at the end of each day that difference is transferred over to the savings account. I’m not sure but I think it’s just set up on my debit card for our joint account. I guess I need to get him to check. We’ve agreed that money is going to be used at the end of the year for something we want not need. Something for the both of us each year. So it’s being saved throughout the year and spent at the beginning of the following year.
