Play games of chance with your extra spending money
- One thing to do is to pick a number out of a hat. Maybe have the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or even go 2,4,6,8,10,12 if you really want to save. Draw a number out of a hat and that’s how much you should save for the day or that’s how much money you can spend that day. So, if you draw a $1 out of your hat then that would be going into saving or maybe that’s all you can spend that day. Likewise, if you draw a 10 then that would go into savings or be that’s how much you can spend that day. Try to do this every day or at least when want to save or figure out how much to spend that day.
- Another way to figure out what to spend would be to roll the dice. Get at least one die or if you really feel like spending get two dice or even more. What number you roll would be how much would save or be able to spend that day.
- Flipping a coin can also be used. You could have heads to be a spending day and tails be a no spend day.
- Then there is always the 52 week spend challenge where you save a dollar a week and keep doubling each week that goes by. Keep going until have enough dough to satisfy the money goal that you have made.
