Loose change in your purse. Loose change on your floor. Loose change in your random winter coats. Loose change under your sofa.What will you use your Financial Freedom Fund for? Click To Tweet
Sounds like a song, right? Well, maybe not!
You know that those coins add up to dollars? Hundreds and hundreds of dollars, right? But that’s only if you keep them in one place. I speak from experience. I was able to use my loose change to pay for a trip to Cuba in 2008. If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’.
Today’s lifework will help you organize your itty-bitty change into big bucks.
- Get an old cookie jar or water jug, old vase, an old wastepaper basket, or a mini-trash can. It’s your choice.
- Label it “My Financial Freedom Fund”(FFF)
- Decorate it and put an affirmation on it. My FFF says, “Kara, you start what you finish.” You could also write a goal on it: “My Aruba trip,” “My wedding gown”, “My second semester book money.”
- Throw all of your loose change in there at the end of each day.
- If you live in a house, have a few FFFs around high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bedrooms. When necessary, combine all of the money into the central FFF.
After it has reached its capacity, redeem your coins for cash.
What will you use your FFF for? Where will you place your FFF?
