Savings Challenge for 2011

December 30th, 2010 at 01:24 pm

I have decided that 2011 is the year that I will be blogging about my savings challenges. This blog will make me accountable to my readers and to myself.

I have decided to try the $1.00 challenge by putting all of my dollar bills into a jar to see how many I save up at the end of the month.

My change jar was half full so I took it to the bank. The bank I use has a free money counter so I didn't have to count it out and roll it up.

I had to pick up a few groceries today so I went through my coupons and made a list before I went shopping. I am glad that I did, my coupon savings were about 10% of my grocery bill.

Today's savings:
Change jar: $51.87
Coupon savings: $7.44
$1.00 Saving Challenge: $2.00

    When I used to go out for lunch, I took my change and put it in a jar. Each month I accumulated $40-50. My best choice for savings though is setting up a payroll deduction.
