A penny saved is a penny earned right? Not exactly if you don’t keep track of them. This month I kept track of extra income and savings for the first time and had a total saved savings for January of $172.67. This was in addition to what I typically save. Not bad, not bad at all. : )
Here’s what I learned from my first month of tracking:
- Money is everywhere. You just have to know where to look.
- Not every way to save money is worth your time – pick and choose.
- Little efforts add up over time. This is just month one, imagine a year!
Here is a breakdown showing how easy it is to save money:
Health Insurance Incentive: $40
Account Dividends: $3.57
Ebay Sales: $82.96
Can’t wait to see what opportunities next month has in store!
