saving your $5 bills throughout the year, i like this idea :) the five-dollar savings plan. It goes like this: Every time you find yourself with a five-dollar bill in your possession, you set it aside instead of spending it. At the end of the year, you use the money you've saved for either a big purchase or to do something you wouldn't normally spend the money to do. Love this. I'm doing this 2013
I like this idea. Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective.
A goal for 2014 for many people is to START a SAVINGS! Sometimes it can be difficult to start saving money as you might not know how much you need to save each month, or feel you cannot work it into your budget. Try a different and easy approach to tackling your savings goals by doing this 52-Week Money Challenge. You begin with $1, and each week add $1 to the amount you are saving (Example: week 1 save $1, week 2 save $2, etc.). By the end of the year, you'll have $1,378!
