I've been using this trick for years. When I shop at my local grocery store they always ask for my "Savings Card" when I get home I check to see how much I saved on that trip and I then put that money in a jar ( I always round up). When I get to $50.00 we have a "Free" meal out!!!

I have to take shots daily and know if I want to live do it. I have ways to make it easier.
I don't likke restrictions, so I found out you can give your shot through your clothes. I do now. Also, I take my first reading as soon as I wake up. I can work with that reading and can function easily through out the day/
Be Honest with Yourself when Categorizing Spending
When figuring out where your money is being spent, be very wary of tricks used to "lie" to yourself. For example, do not get cash back when using a debit card at a grocery store - then track it as "Food".
This really helps narrow down where money can be saved. Withdrawn cash is easy to spend without thinking already, and when hidden in the wrong category, hard to identify ways to save.
Whenever I get any change I try very hard not to spend it. It's surprising how quickly it adds up. Every nickel, dime, quarter and loony (Cdn. dollar bill) goes into a savings bank and only when it is full does it get emptied and rolled. Recently after just 4 months I had almost $400.00
A very easy way to save for something special for yourself.
