Want a quick way to save some cash? Here's a nifty trick that I learned from GetRichSlowly.org that I'm DEFINITELY thinking of adopting!
Every time you get a $5 bill, put it in a jar. It doesn't matter if you have a $100 bill and then one measly fiver -- put it in your Five Dollar Jar. Marie Franklin, in a story from the Boston Globe, describes how she saved $12,000 over three years!
The trick to get this to work is discipline. You have to really mean business, like this kid.
The other thing? You have to start using more cash. You won't accumulate $5 bills if you always use your debit or credit card.
You know what I say about the Five Dollar Jar?
