I am not really one for gimicky challenges, especially when they come from an online source. However, with the economy on a downward trend and extreme socialism about to be instituted in the US (if Obama wins), I think it is important for everyone to spend their money in smart ways. The Save $1,000 in 30 Days Challenge might just help us out.
While a little late starting, the challenge has already offered 4 tips that may or may not inspire you. The best one I think is packing your lunch for the rest of the week. Typically, going out to lunch will cost $7, whereas a healtheir lunch can be had from leftovers or a trip to the store for $3. This will save you $20/wk ($4/ day times five days).
I would encourage everyone to at least take a look at the tips offered. After all, 54% (315/640) of respondants surveyed are willing to spend an hour per day to save money. Let’s see how this comes out!
