Saving Money: Back to the Piggy Bank!
In today's economy, money is very scarce. You have to limit how much you spend, and sometimes you only have enough money to pay the bills. Debt is a problem which is becoming more and more common these days. Everyone wants some money left over for them to spend on whatever they want. Here is a technique which is actually much more effective at saving money than it may seem.
Start Saving In A Piggy Bank
Yes, you heard me. Start saving money using a piggy bank. As silly as this may seem, you can save a lot of money with the piggy bank. Try to limit where you spend money. Say, try to avoid eating McDonalds one day and instead of not just spending the money, place the money in a piggy bank. Try to sacrifice recreational activities and put the money you would have spent on the activities in the piggy bank instead. In the long term, you will realize how much money you have saved up. Now you can spend that saved up money on whatever you want. Also, that saved up money can come real handy in an emergency. This method allows for a controllable way of saving. You don't have to worry about the bank, or about how much your saving up. Just keep a piggy bank close by, and every time you have even the littlest of change you should just dump it all in there. I have saved up to $800 dollars with this method, and it comes in real handy sometimes, especially for presents. Also, when I'm in the mood for a little fast food, instead of fishing money out of my wallet, I can go to my piggy bank. Or if you want to save up for something big, you can get those large piggy banks, where the only way to open them is to break them. So in the end, my point here is, a piggy bank is a very effective way to save up money. If you haven't done so, you should give it a shot right now!
