If you remember from previous posts, I have been utilizing the techniques set forth by Dave Ramsey. A cash envelope system…’member? Well, anyway, when I use cash to purchase pet food, health/beauty supplies (like soap) or even my thrifting envelope…I save the change.
When I make a purchase from my cash envie, I keep the change. Even if the purchase is $3.01, those 99c go right into Mr.Chan’s belly.
This past December Mr. Chan went to the market and depleted his belly into the coin counter…which I turned into an amazon gift card. I figure I save about ten bux in coins per month in round-up coins. That translates into several news books, a midori insert or sticky memos!
So give it a chance, create a little slush fund and then do something fun with it!!
