At the beginning of the year my mom and I were talking about ways to save money and she suggested a plan where you put $5 away a day. She told me you could just take a way a latte or some fast food and eat at home. She knows that I’m a sucker for some Starbucks so I thought this would be a great plan. She gave me an old christmas jar she found on sale somewhere and we thought this would be a great jar to decorate.
I was just going to put how much I was saving on it but I wanted to cover up the snow man so I decided to decoupage it with maps. I also went into excel and made a spread sheet of how much I would have total each day for 365 days. I then decoupaged this all onto my jar.
The grand total for this year if I just put $5 in this jar will be over $1800!
I thought this could be a fun way to save up for a big trip next year or just a little nest egg. I also made a print out with the whole year on it. You can decoupage it on a jar or just put it in a box with your money. I tried to put my jar in a place where I wouldn’t think about it during the week and try to spend the money! If you would like to print the sheet out here is a link to download it!
I think this is a great way to start off the new year saving money!
