By Martha Brown Menard, PhD, Director of Financial Coaching, Questis Do you have too much…
Remember how simple life was as a child? Think back to before you had a credit card – when twenty dollars felt like one hundred. Embrace the nostalgia and get back to basics with your finances.
Next time you are using cash to pay for a transaction, try using bills and no coins. At the end of the day, put your coins into a piggy bank – you’ll be surprised how fast it adds up! When you’re ready to cash in, go to a local bank and get coin rolls to roll them like the tellers do – it’s easy and you don’t lose any of your hard saved coins like you do with the automated money counters you see at the stores!
Get back to basics with your finances and bring out that piggy bank!
