Round Up When Balancing Checkbook



Whenever I write a check or use my debit card, I round up the amount to the nearest $5.00. For instance, if the amount spent was $12.99, when I balance I round it up to $15.00. This way I have money hidden in my account and overtime it helps protect me from overdraft charges. Every month, add up what you "saved". I call it "my stash"
