I recently wrote an article for Frugal Edmonton Mama, sharing 5 easy ways to save money. Here’s a short sample:
Use a change jar.
A friend of mine starts a brand new change jar at the beginning of each year, depositing change into it at the end of every day. She is not allowed to touch this money until the end of the year, and when she does, she often has a few hundred dollars that she can put into her savings account or towards something she needs to purchase (like last year when she needed a new barbecue).
