As we kick off the new year, many of us are already looking for new ways to save and budget better in 2020.
Well one lucky mum has shared her trick for saving thousands - and anyone can do it!
Sharing on the awesome Mums Who Budget & Save Facebook group, mum Rochelle reveals how she saved $5,747 by doing two simple things.
Writes Rochelle: ‘Opened our money box 2.5 years after only putting in gold coins and any money we had made on buy sell swap pages...!
‘Highly recommend using the bank note money boxes from those cheap shops, it all adds up! Grand total was $5,747.00, tin was half full and will definitely consider doing this again.’
And the beauty of the bank note money tins is that you can only access them by using a can opener - which means you won't be tempted to take money out along the way!
Rochelle’s saving hack attracted nearly 9,000 likes and comments - with people blown away by her efforts, and vowing to try the same technique.
Said one: ‘I started one because of this post! The goal is to use it for Xmas 2020 haha.’ Added another: ‘This is inspiring!! Will try to do this in the new year 🙂’
One more pointed out that using Buy, Swap, Sell pages is a great way to recycle unwanted items around your home. We couldn’t agree more!
