ok i noticed in a post earlier this morning someone mentioned that with nursing/pumping, you are saving a lot of money that could be used for better things such as college. i thought i would just share what me and my husband do to also save money for piggy banks for my girls. when we go out to the store or get gas or whatever, we try to use cash as much as possible rather then using our debit card/credit card. heres why
1. you spend less when you use cash since usually you only tend to pull out what you think it will cost
2. the extra change (pocket change) that usually ends up in the bottom of our purses, i take it out once a week and split it up between the 2 piggy banks
i know its completely a random post but its a great way to continue to save money. and occasionally we will drop a dollar or two in each piggy bank as well. just doing the spare change and everyone sending xmas and bday money to my girls, my 2 yr old has about $3000 in her savings account. when she gets cash or checks inside of any card, its an automatic deposit into her bank account rather then getting her more toys that she wont play with or more clothes when shes got plenty. this way.. we wont have to spend so much with college or when she gets married.
