Save Money the Easy Way

http://onecreativeprocrastinatinggal.blogspot.com/
Not every one has that fabulous ability to put cash away or pick it up and let it accumulate.  So, if you are one of those unsavers, then this will help you out tons.  You will be able to save up for that vacation, mini trip or anything else you are wanting to save up for.
  • Each week take 20 bucks and go to the bank to change it to $1 coins.
  • Empty your change collector in your car about every 2 weeks.
  • Empty your purse of the excess change about every 2 weeks. 
  • Ask for half dollars or other odd change so you are more prone to keep it.
  • Another thing you can do is have your bank transfer a said amount when you are paid into your savings account- transfer an amount that won't be missed as easy.
*You can buy rollers or you can go to your bank and they will give you rollers.  They distribute them back out to other banking customers, so it is easy for everyone.  

Coin machine charge .10 on the dollar here and I think and that is just crazy.  Old fashioned way prevails for us.  We like to keep what we save not pay out because we didn't want to count it.  My husband has been doing this for years and it allows us to have vacation funds or to save us in an emergency situation.  With actual cash, we tend to spend it because it easier to spend or swipe the card.   When you see a bunch of change you will less likely go count it out and roll it over spending cash, so it saves.  Most people are busy and do not have the time to sit, count and roll so the inconvenience helps save.  This works for us and may or not work for you, but I wish you the best of luck in your saving adventures.  

How do you save money?  Have any extra tips to share? 

*I just wanted to thank each and every one of you that read Consider Me Inspired, it really means a lot to me.  I appreciate every one of you loyal readers and bloggy friends.  I am in MS with my family for a few weeks, and I will have all posts set up in advance.  I will be checking in here and there but I will not be on the net much.  Hope you are having a wonderful Summer.

I have so much change scattered through my house & our vehicles! I need to roll it all & put it in the savings. Great post, thanks for reminding me. lol.

I always transfer over a certain amount after each bi-weekly paycheck. It is set in stone pretty much, unless we have an emergency or something. We do have a coin jug, too, but being that I use my debit card for most transactions, I don't really get as much change as I once did. Thanks for sharing some different tips and would be interested what others do with this, too!! :)
