Every time I workout for a half hour, I put a quarter in my "Workout Fund." When I've saved up some money, I buy a new small piece of fitness equipment (e.g., yoga mat, balance ball, workout video). If I workout for an hour at a time, I add seventy-five cents and an hour and a half earns $1.50!

I picked up a couple of little jars at the dollar store along with some decrative glass beads. I labeled one jar with - pounds to lose and the other jar with - pounds lost. I filled the first jar with as many beads as pounds I need to lose. Now whenever I lose a pound I move a bead into the pounds lost jar. I sit the jars on my bathroom counter and it is really motivating to want to fill up my pounds lost jar!
When I use a coupon, I put the face value of the coupon in 2 different jars. Sometimes, when I use a lot of coupons, I have to "save up" my change to put it in the jars. I then use the one jar money for Christmas gifts, and put the other change jar money in the bank. A little adds up!!
