专四听写训练115：Money and Job
Saving your hard-earned money can be difficult. As most of us enjoy spending rather than saving, I certainly had a tough time holding on to my money every payday. When I got my first few paychecks, right away I spend the cold hard cash I'd earned by hard work. But I quickly realized that this sort of spending wouldn't really help me get the things I wanted. So I made a pact with myself. I promise that before I did anything with the money, I would deposit at least 50% of the money into my savings account. That way, I eliminated the temptation to spend that money.After I got used to saving my money, it was much easier for me not to be tempted to buy things when I saw them. When I saw a CD, or vedio game that looked appealing,I learn to ask myself,"Do I really need this?"Asking this question helped me appreciate my money, and not let it slip out of my wallet quite so fast.
