Hoping to start this up again in 2013 starting in January. The bills really add up. 4 months ago

This is the froggy bank I’m keeping the 5’s in.
Supposedly it won’t break if dropped, so it’s Kitten/Lucy proof. Thankfully there is a stopper at the bottom to get the $ out eventually. 9 months ago
I’ve been slacking and have fully raided long ago the $5 bills collected.
I have plans to start anew next month when finances look a little brighter. 9 months ago
April I saved almost $200 in $5 bills. May, I failed at this goal and didn’t bother saving the $5 bills after the first week. Not sure why, just didn’t.
June, I feel good about. I’m going to start saving again and will try not to count the amount until a few months of savings have passed. 11 months ago
My purse has lots of $5 bills waiting for my Happy Face piggy bank, just now I need to actually put them in there and not spend them :) I’m hoping to save the money for either help with a trip to FL to see family & friends or to assist a friend with upcoming moving expenses. I’m trying my best to not keep track of how much I’m putting in there so I’ll be surprised.
Last time I tried this goal, I kept taking the money out to take care of expenses when I needed cash and was too lazy to visit an ATM. This time, more discipline, less sticky fingers in $5 jar :) 13 months ago
I haven’t been on task for this one, but have been saving my $5 this month. 13 months ago
I was so diligent with this goal in January and managed to save $115! Then in February I ended up in hospital and had medical bills coming out of my ears, so the little savings I made was eaten up, not to mention that my mind wasn’t concerned about continuing with the goal at the time.
I’m planning to start again soon, but I need to be on top of everything else first so I have more chance of success. 14 months ago
I’m going to keep track monthly of how much I’ve managed to save. I emptied my handbag this morning, as the first day of this goal, and found 2 notes… so $10 is saved already. 16 months ago
I will start this goal on the 1st January and keep at it for a full year and see how far I get! 16 months ago
Each time I get a $5 bill in change, I’m going to keep it in a piggy bank (in my case, the piggy bank is a happy face man from the 70s) and not count it until either my birthday, in March, or later. I heard about this idea from a money online magazine/blog and it sounds worth trying. 16 months ago
