Update: Vespa Goal


I’m doing my best to save $$ for my goal of a Vespa by Sept. 2014. In addition to my automatic savings, this winter I walked when I could and put the saved fare in a jar. And surprisingly, I rarely took taxis.

But now that spring has sprung, I will be able to fully realize my new year’s resolution…I have not bought a metro card.

I am planning on walking everywhere, otherwise I will pay each public transit fare in $$. Sounds like a pain in the ass, right? I want it to be, so I force myself to walk and put that saved $$ towards my Vespa.

See you on the sidewalk!

Automatic Teller Machine

ATM. Insert debit card, enter PIN, receive $$. Easy peasy…as long as there is $$ in the account.
