Filling Your Pot of Gold
Saving money is hard. There may be a few ways to help you fill your “Pot of Gold.”
I’m not a coffee drinker but I have many friends who are difficult to be around without their cup of Joe – instead of going to the brand name coffee concern, shop around and support local cafes for a less expensive version and save thirty cents per cup. That equates to $100 per year – or even more if you make the coffee at home.
If you have filed your income taxes and you are receiving a tax refund – you may want to direct part of the refund towards your pot of gold. These are long-term goals – vacation and or college, house or retirement funds.
Saving when you receive a pay increase – the difference can go straight to savings.
Another way to fill your pot is by washing your hands – you will avoid virus and bacteria and need for medical treatment and medicine and lost work days. This equates to $4000 saved.
Drinking water is a healthy benefit by eliminating over-eating and skips the expensive beverages.
Apply the 30 Day Rule by waiting 30 days before you make a purchase. Ask yourself before making a decision whether to buy a gadget or not. This can save you money too.
Hopefully your pot of gold will grow. – Susan
