This is a cool idea that I got from the AARP Bulletin.
Every $1 bill that you get, look at the letter of the alphabet in the circle on the left side of the note( the side with George Washington on it). These seals denote federal reserve regions and run from A – L.
Save the bills with a letter of significance to you for specific purposes.
An example of this is B for a new bike or present for Bill. C for Christmas presents. L for new lessons of your desire.
You will be amazed how much you can save in a year and really not even miss the dollar here and there. You could probably easily save $500 without any pain.
I am also going to take the time to say what a great website that AARP have. You don’t have to be an “oldie” to get some very informative and helpful information. It is well worth checking out.
