How difficult it is to raise temptation to buy fringe items from the grocery checking counter, just to save that $5? I am sure you read various PF blogs and articles and follow some of the best practices to live frugal and save more. But aren’t most of them little tough? Well for me it is tougher than asking my boss to increase my salary.
Last year, by living frugal, well almost.., I saved perhaps $1000 more than what I could have saved otherwise. Later in 2009 I started some of the office practices (or, started practicing better), and as a result I got a 3% salary increment. Believe me it took lesser efforts than what it took to save $1000 from spending.
You may not be that lucky, or perhaps you have lost interest at current work. It might be very hard for you to do well and get your boss’s attention. But, give it a try. I will describe few of the techniques I tried.
Work hard, work honestly, work intelligently and ask for raise. Do leave your comments.
