First and foremost I want to apologize for my inactivity of all things social media this week … Mike and I were both hit with the dreaded stomach virus (which I think is being called a norovirus?) … And let me just tell you I do not wish this on my most hated enemy …. Seriously … It’s horrible … In fact, as I type this layering bed on my iPad with more body aches and chills then I can even put into words.
But enough about that …
Since its the beginning of a brand new year I thought I would tell you about a lil something I’ve done for years … I forget where I first read about it … I’m pretty sure it was in a a magazine somewhere but it was years and years ago …
Allow me to introduce you to:
What is The Five Dollar Fund you ask?! Well it’s really kinda simple: Every time you get a $5 bill … Save it. Simple huh? You will be amazed at how quickly those $5 bills add up AND how much you don’t miss that extra $5 that you take out of your change from your daily transactions.
Case in point? I started January 1st … A mere 10 days ago! Wanna know how much I have in my Five Dollar Fund? Wanna take a guess first? Ok I’ll just tell you: $50!!!!
How awesome is that? In pasts years I’ve used my Five Dollar Fund money towards Christmas/birthday gifts, vacation spending money, boots … You get the idea … This year I’ve decided my Five Dollar Fund is going towards (yes another) new blog design … Not yet or soon – but you knowwwww that I get bored easily and will want to change it up again
eventually probably sooner then I realize at some point.
Soooo that’s my own personal lil money saving tip for ya today
What do you think of the Five Dollar Fund?!?!
