We rarely use cash - I know that's the opposite of what is usually suggested but our credit card reward points really add up. We just have one credit card and we use it for EVERYTHING. At the end of the month when we pay the bill we see if we overspent and can adjust the next month. This worked well for us until about a year ago and now we're tracking our budget a little more carefully to get a handle on our spending. . . nothing drastic but our budget changed since buying a house and we just need to figure out what the new one is.

Anyways, we do have a small change jar but I also have $100 deposited into my savings account every pay day (every other week). It's automatic so I forget about it and just learn to live without it since it's money that I don't ever see. Hopefully that counts!

Spark helped me reach my goal weight so hopefully it can also help me get my budget on track :)

I join SparkPeople on 3/4/2011. This website is awesome. Right now I am saving any change I get back when I spend cash. So far I have $27 in change.

How can I add the weight tracker to my messages?

Did you check the Genral Team Discussion Forum - there are two topics about the jar there. (I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for.)

Psalms 34:7 - Delight your self in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Before you ask God for Anything, remember to first thank him for Everything

Hi there everyone. I joined this group a couple of years ago & I guess I haven't been back. BUT - I have continued to put my dollar a day in the savings account. Amazing how it adds up. Last week my car blew up. And I have some savings toward a new-to-me car! So, I left $1 in there as seed money & will be adding another dollar today.

I was a member of Spark a while back and got off track for many reasons. Today I am starting new- making new goals and love this idea of saving $$ each day. I am starting my blue piggy bank off today with $21.00 of change I had no idea what I was saving for. I still don't know what I will do with it but at least I now have motivation to continue to add to it. I will add $1.00 per day plus $2.00 for each day I don't eat lunch out.

Piggy bank total: $21.00
Group total: $381,942 + $21.00= $381,963.00

Hi, It has been a while since I logged in but I had been saving and also paying a few bills. I only get $269.00 a month from State Disabiliy Assistance but I also get $200.00 in Food Assistance. I usually use most of my Food Stamps on pop so I can turn in my cans or bottles. In Michigan you get 10 cents each can or bottle you retun to the stores. That is the money that I use in saving for things I like to do. I will do my best to save a dollar a day. That is how I got my new netbook so I can be more in touch with my groups. I also have a twitter account my username on that one is smartdog1956. If you want to twitter. Have a nice week :-)

***NOT SURE SPARK JAR AMOUNT IS CORRECT:
IT DOESN'T INCLUDE ANY MONEY FROM THE LAST TWO POST OF PERSONS POSTING BEFORE ME.

Sorry, I didn't know how much to count for you.
I think the rule is to round off total then add your amount to the spark jar total.

It doesn't take away from your money just tracks a running total for the group as a whole.

I think! emoticon

Thanks all for the informative info regarding the team, am fairly new here and was not quite sure how to work this. Haven't really had too much time to just check into it. Thanks again...

GEMINIJENNY25, thanks for your ideas. I'm gonna start doing them, esp. the automatic transfer to savings acct. even though I'm on a fixed once monthly check from government. For most of my life, have been doing the no using change.... the kids always got it when I went to visit, etc.

Have a great relaxing and financially smooth week.

Here is what i do to save money: 1)I primarily use cash. I only spend dollars (no change), and I save all of my change in a jar. This adds up to about $100 a month between myself and my boyfriends change!
I learned that from Larry Winget who writes awesome-straight forward financial books!!
2) The other thing I do I learned from David Bach (Automatic Millionaire)I set up a savings account. when I get paid every 2 weeks the money goes into my checking account. I have arranged with my bank for them to sweep $35 every 2 weeks automatically from my checking into my savings acount. i have only been doing this for 2 months and already have almost $200 saved! Thy secret really is paying yourself first. If you never have it you don't miss it!
