I started writing this blog a few months ago, on July 10 to be exact. In a post on July 22, I challenged readers to join the Save Your $5s Club, for one month, and then to take a step back and see how it’s been working out for you.
Another month has passed so I recently added up my $5s deposits since starting the blog and see that I’ve saved approximately $500 in $5s since then. Again, for full disclosure, my husband generously adds to my $5 stash here and there; still, $500 is not bad considering we spend much of the summer in our vegetable garden and out on the clam flats of Cape Cod rather than in stores consuming more stuff.
More important, I want to hear from you, my readers. If you are saving your $5s, would you be so kind as to leave a comment and tell us: How long have you been saving $5 bills and how much have you saved? Please, leave a comment; I predict it will help encourage more of us to start the practice and even pull in a few new believers who happen to read this post on the blog.
Ready, set, GO!
Yours in Five,
