Saving Money

Bliss

Do you have a piggy bank/money box or do you keep all of your money in the bank?

I am pretty bad when it comes to saving money. I only have one bank account and it's practically empty once all my bills have gone out each month.
The money for bills that my boyfriend gives me is kept in a safe place, but not as safe as a bank. I should probably put it in there. That said, I spend all of it each month. If I didn't have it in the house then maybe I'd manage to save more.

At work I have a money box and each time I have 1p or 2p coins I put them in there. Once it gets full I take it to the bank and change it to notes.

I have some money that mom has saved in my name but practically it is her money since she's the only one using it.

I don't have a bank account with my own money. I'm bad at saving money.

no, :(. i don't have a piggy bank and tend to spend all of my salary. no matter how much i try to save it, i can't. that's pretty scary because i don't know what'll happen in the future.

I currently have no job and no income at all so it's hard to save. I have a bank account with a few grand stored in there but at the moment that number is going down and not being replenished which makes me nervous. I really need to get another job soon. I'm okay at saving money... I just try to limit my ATM visits. It's when I go to ATM's too often that I start draining the account.

I am really bad. There are days where I just leave both my credit card and bank card at home so I don't spend anything. I think I'm going to start taking a dollar to work everyday day because I could eat a cup of ramen for thirty cents. If I do that, I bet I would save a shit ton.

30 cents! You lucky bastard! I don't think there's anything in my entire country worth 30 cents! I'm so jealous right now. I can spend up to $6 for just a sandwhich at the lunch places near my school. And for an instant cup of noodles like you speak of it would never be under 1 dollar, probably something like $2.50 on average.
Is it seriously 30 cents where you are? That's it! I'm moving.

lol Yes. 28 if I use my discount. :p It is only one flavor. I have found the same flavor at a gas station for over a dollar. I'm lucky, I will probably eat two a shift, but if I'm only spending 60 cents opposed to six dollars, I'm happy.

I used to be so much better at saving money when I was still in High School. I tend to spend a lot of money when I go out during the weekends, but I have a pretty good paying job so I can still save up my money for the future.

I put all my money in the bank, and try to gain interest on that money. It's a good investment.

Hmm what's the flavour? That would probably limit me a lot. Being vegetarian I can't eat anything beef, chicken or pork flavoured etc and that's usually popular in these instant noodles.

Still very jealous. I think the cheapest noodles you can get here are the packets ones. They are always more expensive in a cup.

I have two bank accounts, one is for personal saving and the other is my daily usage account so money can get paid into it, I get 200 dollars a fortnight for Youth Allowance and since I am not a big spender, the remaining I get till the next pay out, I put in the piggy bank and when that gets full, I put it in the other account.
