Save Those Measly $1 Bills

One thing that I have tried to save more money is to keep all of my one dollar bills. Think about it…last time you went to the convenience store to pick up a soda and a pack of nabs the bill was what? $1.50? How did you pay for it? Well, from now on don’t spend anything less than a $5 dollar bill.

In our above example, you would have $3.00 to put away to savings. Not much right? Exactly! See, this is such a small amount, you will never miss it. But over time it will really add up. I personally have been doing this for about two months now, and last time I checked I had over $250.00 in one dollar bills. My wife still laughs about my absolute refusal to spend my singles, but the joke will be on her when I get that new TV I have been eying.

I must give credit when do however, I didn’t think of this by myself. I ran across it while reading The Neal Boortz website several months back.


  • Hey are using Wordpress for your blog platform?
    I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started
    and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
