I haven't started rounding down yet but what I did start doing is old fashioned money box type saving with a twist. Any $2 coins i save..only $2 as its just easier to only have to count 1 lot of coin when taking it to the bank. Once the jar is full then I'll take it to the bank. In 2 weeks I've saved $36!

I had to bite the bullet today and cut up the card that was connected to my savings account! The last 2 weeks I have been terrible with using my savings for little things, little things that add up so quickly and its disappointing that I've let that happen, I've now put myself behind in the "savings schedule" I had created for myself.
I am now going to be really strict with what I am spending money on.

SIL bought this 1.5L bottle of Jack Daniels over with her when she visited earlier this year and I have found the perfect use for it! All gold coins go in. I check my purse and DH's wallet every evening. Hoping to pay for Xmas this year (we host the day as well as presents). I think we have $200-250 at the moment.

we have a pineapple money box that we do the same with. all loose change goes in. we try not to touch it (which is easy really) and if builds up fast. had a couple of hundred bucks in there easy last count. sometimes we use it to order a pizza or go into it to get change for parking. it's such an easy way to put a few bucks aside

How's everyone going?
I feel back on track, not spending what I technically don't have. And I've been setting a budget for myself when it comes to lunches/coffee when I'm out of the house.

Pretty sure I have nearly $50 or more but trying not to count it too much so it's a nice surprise. I'll count at end of month again.

Not doing so great. Had to take what we had put away in our savings account to pay the rent. So all we've got is what's in our change jar. It's going to be a tough few weeks for us to catch up with our bills again as dh has had a few tough weeks work wise due to the weather.
