7 fun Saving money challenges
Weather money challenge
This is a fun one. It is a challenge that you take your weather app and you will take Wednesday’s weather (the middle day of the week) and whatever the highest temperature is on Wednesday you have to save that amount of money.
So, if it is 30 degrees on a Wednesday you have to save $30 on that week. This number could be higher or lower. I’m in Perth and it gets really hot here in summer up to 43 degrees Celsius.
But, If you are in a cold place and the weather degrees are in the negatives, you are still ought to save that amount depending on the number!
If it is zero degrees, that is a free week. If it is one or two degrees outside. You only have to save that amount.
Consistency is key. Therefore, make sure you are doing it throughout the months. Winter, spring, summer or autumn.
A Pretty simple and fun way of saving. I wish I knew this earlier.
Anytime that you have a ten/twenty or fifty cents from a change back, you put it into a jar, a 2-liter bottle or a wine bottle. Whatever you prefer.
At the end of the time when it is all filled up, you will be shocked at how much money you have and the amazing part behind this is how much those cents will add up to after the jar is filled to the max.
I would recommend going to the dollar tree or your local bank to cash in those dimes.
I want you to track your savings, have a specific goal by knowing where that saving is going to.
In most cases, you end up spending that money you saved.
Break this tragic cycle by investing in side hustles or online jobs such as blogging, affiliate marketing or drop-shipping that will make more money passively, in a more advanced term. Passive Income.
