I have a rule for saving money and that is I save all my five dollar bills. If a cashier gives me my change back and it is a five dollar bill, I will save it in my jar. It takes some time but it works and you easily add to your saving! Think of the times when you were given a five dollar bill add those lets say and you could have saved over hundreds of dollars! Try it you won't lose anything but will save a bunch!
