Stop using a debit card to pay for purchases. A credit card is much more suited for this for various reason.

Do you have an online savings account? No, I do not mean a traditional savings account at the local bank branch that gives you $0.02 a month in interest. I mean a high-yield savings account that you can easily transfer money to or withdraw from nearly any ATM. The difference is monumental…
I think there is a lot to say about a comfort zone. I have been thinking about how many times I have grown or succeeded by staying at a level I felt comfortable at… I couldn’t think of many.
I am the newer guy in the department as I was hired on as a temporary intern while I was finishing my studies at my local community college. My manager offered me to stick around and work full time hourly. I happily accepted the offer as I knew this would help develop my skills and I love what I did. A few months of hard work after being offered full-time, the IT Manager offered me to stay on his team permanently as salaried. I was astonished. I always knew this day would come and I’m thrilled to see my work paid for itself.
It started a couple months ago when my IT Manager brought up the idea of a couple of us attending the Infor TechEd conference in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have been with Linemaster for less than a year so I knew my chances of going to TechEd was slim. Fortunately, this conference was educational and was designed for developers to learn more about their product, Syteline. Sooner than later I was asked if I would be interested in traveling to attend this event, which I happily accepted. I consider that moment a milestone in my life – my first business trip.
