I found this really cool post about saving. You put the amount of money into a jar for what ever week it is.
So week 1 is $1 and week 2 is $2 and so on.
Can you read that last line?
That's a lot of money! After a little investigation I found a different version that seems to fit my needs a little better.
It is more like a BINGO. I took the numbers 1-49 and placed them randomly on a grid. The original way would leave the biggest amounts more towards Christmas when money is tight anyway. My way I can pick the number I can afford that week and cross that block off. If money is tight than maybe that week only 3 or 5 dollars get crossed off. The week I have some overtime than one of the highest numbers should get crossed off.
Let's make savings a game.
The kids do it at school for reading. If you make a BINGO you get extra recess.
My BINGO prize will be cash.
Is this a crazy idea?
