I like some of these tips on saving money. I had never heard some of these ideas before, and some seem to make it "fun". I like the one about putting the money you save on your grocery trip, into savings. I have already started "sneakily" saving a little money.

I also opened a couple more savings accounts with my bank and named them. One for kids, one for home repairs, etc. It was really easy.

I used to throw all my change into a shoebox. Nobody else knew about it. I was AMAZED how fast it added up!!! Just getting it out of "reach", making it more difficult to get to, helps so much. It makes you think twice before spending.

At the bank, when people come in and say their ATM card isn't working, we sometimes tell them it's our savings plan. ;)
