We put some $ into savings every week. Coupons. Installed led lights where ever they fit. Take short showers.... It all adds up.

My wife and I have used a process that when we buy something like a car, land, other expensive item we shop and then wait 24 hours until we buy, this has saved a lot of impulse buys that we would have regretted.

Have your pay day go to a savings account. Transfer the amount needed. Leave the rest in savings. My son payed off his auto loan by using this method.

Remember the song "Put your chewing gum on the bedpost overnight"?  Part of the song said, "a nickle is a nickle, a dime is a dime" (I'd sing another chorus but I don't have the time.)

 

Well, if you save those nickles and dimes they will add up to savings at end of day, week, month and year.  The savings will allow you to do special things:  vacation, purchase x, etc.

 

At days end, put your change in a container, and forget about it.  When the container is full, pat yourself on the back and admire your accomplishment.  t's like compounding interest.

 

Note:  I've been doing that and still working on my first million dollars!

I try to save in any way I can. 1 way is to by generic whenever possible, 2. Look for different sales in stores, 3.  Purchase items at thrift shops.. sometimes you hit the savings jackpot at these places! 4.  Ask myself.. 'do I really need this at this time?'  put it back & maybe purchase it at another time, if at all.  5.  Sales online.. compare shopping on websites.  I have other ways, but gotta keep this short for now.  Good luck to all in your savings venture, & the contest!  (But, I hope I'm the winner! LOL).  ~Kathy~
