For the three subscribers I have, I’m taking a quick break from mindless posting to share a project I’ve built on NYC-San Francisco flights. It’s called 10 Benjamins a Month.
I’m a frugal person, and since graduating I strive to save $1,000/month. With my limited income it was difficult, often requiring weekday spending of $5 per day (i.e., cans of Tuna for dinner). But by recognizing my daily spending threshold, it helped me reach the $1,000 savings mark.
Often, friends would ask how I manage to save so ruthlessly. The site executes a basic calculation of daily spending/saving rate, something so simple that many of us neglect.
If you’re curious how I made it: it’s one page of code using PHP. Check out this tutorial on PHP and HTML. It taught me everything I needed to know. The design is a bit more complicated, based on CSS. Shoot me an email and I can explain further.
