Money Monday – Are You Keeping the Change?

Money Tree

We have all heard of extended friends, family or coworkers that have taken vacations with the change they collect in a jar.  In fact, most people are moving away from paying in cash all together, so we probably haven’t had change jingling around in quite a while.  Possibly the only time was when we had to request a new bank card and was forced to use cash for a week or two.  I know it can seem daunting to walk around with cash these days.  If you are robbed, it’s much easier to make one call to the bank or credit union and alert them then wait for a new card versus losing all the money you were carrying in one swoop.  But why not start small?  Keep a smaller amount on you in an effort to start accumulate change.  Believe it or not, you will be surprised at how much change you end up with at the end of the week, or end of the month.  This habit will also help you save more of your money.  If you physically have to remember, and count out either exact change you will know exactly how much you have spent.  You won’t have to play the, “Am I going to overdraft?” game and either run home or feverishly check your account online through your phone.

It’s worth a shot, right?

Instead of scrolling through various social media sites looking for a savings solution or starting a savings plan in January only to give up by the end of February, start small and build on your savings goals.  You will be very surprised at the results by even Memorial Day or your Summer Vacation, and create a new positive habit for yourself!

New in box, heats up to 428F (220C).  It’s a great product but it’s not hot enough for me.  This is a great product for softer hair.  It is ceramic, red in colo, and heats up fast.  It does have an on/off switch and temperature control.  It would make a great gift!  Don’t delay, I’m sure it will be gone by the end of the weekend, if not today!

Fabulous Friday – A Cold Cool

Snowman

I’m sure you have heard it a million times so far this week – it’s bitterly cold almost everywhere in the US!  I think I have packed on a million layers of clothing just to stay warm.  It’s times like this that I miss summer, and the smell of sunblock for a moment.  Ah, the memory of ice cold drinks on warm nights with friends laughing as the sun finally set close to 10pm (minus the humidity).  I know it can be hard to find something stylish to put on because being warm is more important.  The best way is to dress up in layers.
