“How I made a big change getting rid of small change.”
Like everyone, I seem to end up most days with loose change. And frankly, it’s amazing.
Why I hate change
There is no good place for change. It makes my purse too heavy and my husband’s pockets jangle.
No matter how much change I have, it’s never the right change. If I need 72 cents, you can bet I’ll have 68 cents in my pocket.
I’m not crazy about the fashion statement I make marching into my bank with a zip-lock bag to be counted.
How Eastwood’s “Save the Change” Helped Me*
I authorized an automatic round-up on each debit card purchase from my Eastwood checking account.
My “change” (the difference) is deposited into my Eastwood savings account.
For example, if I make a debit card purchase of $25.65, $26.00 would come out of my checking account and the change ($.35) would be deposited into my savings account.
Why I love “Save the Change”
Now, think about all the change you get. At 75 cents a day, in one year you’d have $273.75 in savings – plus interest! At $1.10 per day in change, you’d have $401.50 plus interest!
We’re talking real money!
Try it. See how a little change can add up to big savings for you!
