Five Dollar Budgeting Challenge

One of my all time favorite money stories is about a little way to save a lot.

The story is about a woman who decided to save every five dollar bill she touched. It took awhile for her to get into the habit, but once she did, it actually became kinda fun!

She used an all-cash budget, and persistently stuck with it  for 12 years. Do you want to know how much money she saved?! $37,000! I’m not kidding! A lot of patience and a simple habit helped her save enough for  a new car or downpayment on a home.

So, do you want to save more money?  Create a budget, switch to all cash spending, and save every five dollar bill you touch. If you need a budget that works for you, Crown has a guide that makes it simple. Download it for free at
