Secrets of Success

Every Penny Counts



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.
