I read this in Backwoods Home magazine and have just started implementing it last week. We live on cash only so it's really great for those that do. Basically, whenever I make a transaction, I save ALL my change and ALL my 1's. Meaning, I only use 5's and up to pay for anything. At the end of the day the 1's go into an envelope and the change goes into a jar. I've been doing this for only one week and already I've managed to squirrel away $25 in 1's and easily $5 + worth of change. It was painless, it was effortless and Lord knows I would have just wasted it on junk thinking I had a few extra dollars to kill. It's really great, especially for me because I really can't spare much extra money, but this took NO thinking.
Also, the magazine suggested doing the same with 5's or 10's when you want to save up for something. I think I will try that as soon as our CC debt is paid off.
