    So, what's your technique for squirreling it away, unseen, until there's enough to buy a new one? :whistling:

    This might be good.

    Layaway. i go to a gun shop that has a generous layaway policy. Lucky for them really because there are cheaper gun stores around, but the layaway policy is liberal so that makes it easier to buy,
    I have bought a ruger mini 14 (used, $600) and my 26 (new, $650) from them, this way.

    Any and all paper change under a $20.00 bill goes directly into the old cigar box on the bookshelf. Coins in a jar obviously.


    ...saves up quicker than you may think.

    That's pretty much what I do too. It's amazing really how fast it accumulates. Also, we get a lot of overcharge refund checks from medical services. Those are like, $10, $20... those go right in the checking account that I have set up for this kind of stuff.

    I keep it separate, that way I can categorize it easily in my mind, and it's easier to track ...

    At work we do a direct deposit split into (up to four ) accounts, so I just have 100 - 300 a month stashed in a bank account from another state. That way I don't count on it but when I check that account online and see $$$ I start drooling over what's next. I've been a bad boy this year though already 3 new purchases...

    I have a money tree growing in my backyard. When the time is right I go pick some off it.

    I have a specific savings account titled "zombie fund". Yeah, I can check it online, but IRS more fun to go to a teller. :)

    Just money in my savings account and let it build up... I don't have a trouble saving, I don't really spend money on things, but my hobbies and bills.

    Me too! Keep it on the down low, though. The IRS still doesn't know about mine.

    I seldom get any kind of bonus. Teachers rarely do.

    teachers, military and first responders should be paid higher than doctors!! You guys are shaping minds(teachers) and saving us from those whose minds have wandered(military, first responders).

    We all keep saying that, then they tell us to go back to babysitting their kids every day.

    (I'm a teacher, btw)

    Maybe you should run for Congress. They don't seem to have any problem with giving themselves raises... :whistling:

    Easier said than done, but make a budget and stick to it.
    Every Dollar you earn has a job:

    $X pays for you housing
    $Y buys food
    etc...
    $10-$20 (or whatever) each check for glocks
