The Leftover Change In Your Checking Account...


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Every morning, I go on and check my bank account. Whatever is in the .__ spot, like whatever change is left in my checking acct that morning, I transfer it into my savings. That way I have an even number in my checking acct, and I save money.

I have saved $6 so far in about a week... when it is hard for someone to save money because you can barely pay bills, this is definitely a good way to save!!

    If you have the option to join Bank of America, they do this automatically for you every time you use your check card. It rounds up the purchase to the next whole dollar amount. I don't think I'd do it myself every day, but since it happens automatically it's really easy to save!

    I think this is a fantastic idea. I won't due this daily, but would do this weekly. I don't see anything negative about doing this everyday; I know people that check their account on a daily basis.

Good tip, thanks for sharing.

    Does that make it harder to balance your checkbook?

    Not to be negetive, but you do this every day?
