$20 challenge!

This shopping trip was from last week and I keep forgeting to post, so here it goes. In the last p&g insert (usually the last sunday of the month) there were coupons for $3 off haircolor and $2 for the shampoo and conditioner. Had two of each.

Total spent after coupons amd sell for everything after coupons and sales $20 saved $39. Total would have been $59 and change. The cashier was floored. $aved about 75 percent so not a bad shopping trip.

Creative Way To Save (trick yourself into saving)

Is one of your new years resolutions to save more?  If it is, here are some creative ways to save for a rainy day, that vacation your dreaming about, your next big purchase.

At the end of everyday dump in all of your loose change. This is like a savings account, but its a way to trick yourself into saving. When the bottle is full take it to your bank and cash out. Even if you just put all pennies in the bottle you would have upwards of $300 when the bottle is full. If you put in all your change you would have a pretty substanial amount of money to work with
(2000-

)...more than enough for a nice getaway, new furniture, to pay off debt or whatever you are saving for...( mine is half full as I'm writing this)
