December 10 – Wisdom.
What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?

Money management is probably not the most exciting topic to blog about, so I'll keep today's post short and sweet (plus I have some delicious pizza to make). However, I would have to say that I was at my sagest this year, when I made the decision to set up an automatic savings plan. This set up essentially involves the automated removal of money from my everyday bank account and its deposit into a special little "Georgia's treats" account on a fortnightly basis. I barely notice the disappearance of $25 from my bank account every two weeks - it pales in comparison to mortgage repayments and other important purchases, bills etc. However, checking back on my "treat" account in September, I realised I had stashed away a nice little amount. In fact, it was enough to buy my new, shiny bicyclette! Huzzah!
