A simple saving game where everyone wins

So often people tell me they can't save, they don't have the money.  Well this saving game will reap a great prize for you, the winner, and make saving easy.  It really is simple - every time you get a $5 note save it.  Put it in a money box or a biscuit tin, anywhere out of your purse or wallet. How simple and easy is that?  You'll need to be strong and resist the temptation to spend them but as you see your "prize" growing in value the motivation to keep going will be strong.  Try it for a week and see how much you have saved, then try it for another week.  That prize money is growing so quickly, imagine how much you'll have by the end of the month!  Just as you never spend a 50c coin, make a promise to yourself to never again spend a $5 note.

  1. I have just started on my own journey out of debt, and that sounds like an awesome tip.

    For a few years I have been doing the coin jar technique, where at the end of every day any coins get dropped into a jar, and when it is full, I take it to the bank. Normally making a deposit of $50 or more each time. Which is great, as most of us would spend the coins if they were in our pocket.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
