Tip for Saving

Everyday take whatever change or a set amount of money...$2 dollars, $5 dollars, whatever (or any money you can spare...never limit yourself) and place it into a jar or piggy bank. At the end of each month or every other month, go to a coinstar machine (located in most super markets) and change it over. Then, go to a bank & open a savings account for your child(ren) with that money or open an account and use the money for their Christmas gifts, Birthday gifts or party, etc....

Another trick find a piggy bank that you can't open unless you break it. I stuff a couple bucks in their with my spare change and once a year it goes in my daughters college fund. Not being able to grab out of the piggy bank makes adding up easier and I usually can find an old piggy bank at a garage sale.
