Save your fives?

I was visiting Boston Gal's Open Wallet, and she referred to an article about a woman who saved $5 dollar bills and in 3 years accumulated over $12000. You can read about it here. What amazed me most is the discipline to do that. I've heard of saving change and dollar bills, but the concept of going one step further...

In order for this to work, she had to use cash, not credit. Hey, I'm doing that! So, maybe this might be another way for me to save some rainy day money. I think I can save $5's!

Even just saving your change, never using current change and re-breaking bills can really add up too! Baby Steps!

Oh, I really like that idea, I think I might have to implement it too! :) Thanks for sharing!
