on the first Sunday of the new year, I put $1 into a jar. On the 2nd Sunday, I put $2. On the 5th Sunday, $5. It’s $30 on the 30th Sunday, and so on until we reach the 52nd and final Sunday of the year and I put $52. Over the course of the year, this amounts I believe to just under $1400. In addition to that, every paycheck (I get paid every 2 weeks) I add an extra $20. This comes up to an extra $520. So at the end of the year, I have $2000 give or take. Following this method over the past 4 years, I’ve been able to buy: -Gibson Custom Shop L2 acoustic (1 of 50 made, bought new. The seller was asking $3200, I offered $2000 and he accepted) -Martin HD-28 (bought used, paid $1500) -Martin 000-28 amberburst (bought new, open box, saved $1000) -1992 Fender Telecaster 52 avri (bought used, paid $900) -Fender 57 Champ Custom (bought new, $1000) -and I’m a set of pickups shy of finishing a high end Partscaster I’m planning on possibly getting a Gretsch Duo Jet as my 2021 guitar. My wife knows I have an annoying stack of guitar cases in the spare bedroom, but she has no earthly idea how much I’ve spent over the past 4 years. I told her that I was doing the $1+ per week thing to buy whatever I want and she said ok. Doesn’t seem like much to her. If she had any clue that I have 2 guitars that I paid $2000 each for, she see it differently.
