The other day I visited one of my regular blogs and read about “The Ten Rule.”
“The Ten Rule
Due to the time value of money, and the opportunity cost, the ten rule is this:
Anything you buy today, your future self is paying 10x as much for. So add a zero onto the price tag, and ask yourself if it’s still worth it. If it is, buy it and enjoy it. If not, then forget it!”

I planned to purchased a new tracker for about $6.00 on Sunday at the Weight Watchers meeting, because mine is all used up!
But if I apply the rule, it would be more like $60.00! Really?
So… I found that I have a couple of these composition books in my stock!
Printed out a pretty picture:
Got out a pair of scissors and some tape to protect the cover:
And I turned that ugly old book into this:
My new weight watchers tracker! I think those comp books cost me less than $1.00 at the beginning of the school year~! Let’s say they cost me .89 cents. With the Add Zero Rule, that would be $8.90, but way better than $60.00.
I love that rule! My life is all about the future now. I don’t live and spend for today. I think about tomorrow and this is really going to help curb moron purchases! It all adds up!
Note: I added a few new blogs to my roll and I am changing up the site a bit. I deleted the Digital Vacation page and replaced it with Pinterest Picks! Pinterest has beautiful pictures, way better than my daily iPhone shots!
I also added Inexpensive Recipe and Stretchy Ideas! The site is becoming a wonderful place to blog thru these Sixty Payments!
