I found that I saved 147.00 in two months in "change" in the check book by rounding everything to the next dollar. Whether it was a quiktrip entry for $2.75 and rounding it to $3.00 or paying the gas bill for 53.26 and rounding it to 54.00. It didnt seem like much at the time but 60 days and 147.00 later I think Ill keep this trend up!
when deducting a payment on my check book register I always round off to the next tenth, for exp. if the check is for 148.54, i deduct 150.00 from my balance...you will have money left over every month
I have started rounding up every amount I take out of the check book. I have decided this way there is always extra there I just don't know it. If my check is for 4.56, I write in 5.00. I have already saved almost $200.oo in the last month. When I balance my checkbook, extra goes in savings.
