Have you not started Holiday shopping yet? Well great, I have some advice for you. Have you been wanting to save some money but not sure how? Are you always wanting to do things around the house or buy an extra thing but don’t have the money?
So you still have to do Christmas Shopping? Do the rest of your shopping with cash. Each time you get change from shopping put that change in a special container. Each day you put only a small amount of change away for savings. The first day starts off with a penny. Think about each day when you or your spouse cleans out their pockets and the change that came from them.
I have done this challenge and is not hard to do. There may be times that you may not go to the store at all. So some days I do more that one day’s amount of change to put aside. I printed out the paper and put it with the change container that I was saving. I would mark off the days of change that I put in there. I would also hide this container of change. The reason for hiding it is because you never know when someone in the family needs change for a car wash or a vending machine. They just see the container of change and just might help themselves.
If you are able to do this for the full 365 days then you will have $667.95. So if you start now you will have some Christmas money for next year. Maybe something comes up before that you need some money. Take this step in frugal living by trying a new way of saving money.
