A couple of months ago, I mentioned how I save all my coins and cash them in yearly. This year, I deposited approximately $300+ in coins into a separate savings account. But why should I stop there? Truth is, I don’t have to. In addition to saving my coins, here’s yet another easy way to save….
SAVE THOSE DOLLAR BILLS!!!
If I save my coins, why not save my dollar bills too? Starting today, I’m going to see how many singles I can save by September 15, 2016. Who dares to accept this challenge along with me? Are you ready? Synchronize your watches in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. GO!!!
Cha-Ching…. Now watch those dollars add up.

One thought on “TIP TUESDAY: An Easy Way To Save”
Years ago I knew a guy who wanted to save some money. We were in college and worked at a convenience store to make ends see each other. They never met–they just saw each other from across a great divide of bills. Anyway. He told me he took a portion (can’t remember the number) of each check and when cashing it, had it converted into change. Then he’d go home and dump the change in a jar and throw away the wrapper. “Why not just save the same amount in a separate account?” “Because I’ll save more this way. Dude, I’ll never use nickels, dimes and quarters to buy beer. My pride will force me to save some money!” I don’t know how much he saved but I’ll never forget the concept of working around ourselves to help ourselves. Great post. -John.
