I have started rounding up every amount I take out of the check book. I have decided this way there is always extra there I just don't know it. If my check is for 4.56, I write in 5.00. I have already saved almost $200.oo in the last month. When I balance my checkbook, extra goes in savings.

    Thats awesome. it likes a similar program my bank does. Everytime that I use my debit card it rounds it up to the next dollar and that money goes into savings account. it really does add up!
