Why Leave Money On The Table!

This Sparked Me!

Mr. A spends his cash and puts his left over extra change in his jar. He feels good. Mr. B gets a no annual fee credit card, a free $25 sign up bonus, watches his expenses, pays off entire balance at the end of each month, then gets FREE reward dollars direct deposited in his savings account monthly and therefore gets another small interest bonus! He feels great as his "jar" grows much faster!

    This is a0 good thought, so long as you can follow the credit card thing. Otherwise...you lose so much money in ln late fees and interest..and that bonus for not being late!

This sparked me to look into other possibilities and to think more about consistency :)

    We actually do both! I put our change into a jar we cash in once a year and its not much. My husband has a rewards card and just cashed it in for a $100 check though! We do it about twice a year.
