My "Secret" Money


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I started working in my current position 14 years ago I enjoyed eating in the upscale employee dining room. However I found it was costing about $5 a day. I started packing my lunch and put the $5 in a piggybank. I work 3 days a week, so $15 a week over the years has funded a lot of extra

activities while on vacation.

    I give myself a cash allowance every week and put it in my billfold. On Friday, I take the money that remains and put the coins in our coin counting machine and the bills in an enveloped marked "Saved." I put my next week's allowance in my billfold and repeat the process. I have literally saved hundreds of dollars.
