When planning a trip overseas, I created a "Finland fund." I would frequently empty my entire change purse into an old-school Tootsie Roll bank. But more importantly was the fact that every quarter I received, and every $5 bill would be added to the fund. It added up fairly quickly. (I must admit to sometimes hoping for a $5 bill in change, and other times, hoping I'd get 5 singles that could be spent!)
I like to get creative when trying to find ways to save money. I started "collecting" $5 bills. Whenever I get a $5 bill, I will not spend it. Instead, I put it in my stash until I have enough to do what I want. You would be surprised how many fives you come across. I paid for a round-trip flight from Florida to Texas in 6 months doing this.
