A friend shared an excellent idea with me-for every mile I walk I put a $1.00 bill in a special cup. This money is ear marked for something special that I want. At the end of Feb. I am going jean shopping! I have not worn jeans in 15 years! To date I have $75.50 in the cup!

I have set up an automatic withdrawal of $35 every Monday from my checking account to my savings account (which equals $5 a day). This amount is small enough that I don't really notice it when it is taken out, but I feel better knowing that I am saving at least some money! It will add up in the end!
