Budget 101 with Quarters

This months Budget 101 idea is how to save for emergencies. We all try to save and put money away. Well this is one way you can add up your emergency money for your kits in no time. Quarters! Yes you read that right. Buy a roll of quarters each time you go to the bank. A roll of quarters is $10.00. Add the rolls of quarters to your 72 hour kits, first aid kit etc.

Quarters are easy to get, and you generally will not spend them unless you have to, unlike some one dollar bills hanging around. Keep the rolls for emergencies only. One nice thing about cash, coins, they all spend the same. After a few trips to the bank you will have a small stash of emergency cash. You will not notice the ten dollars each trip to the bank, like on pay day. Make a habit and slowly you will have some hidden cash put away. Do it slowly. Most people go to the bank for quarters to go to the laundry mat, or for playing games or vending machines. So you going in and asking for a roll of quarters will not look weird at all!

Remember 4 quarters make a dollar!
